At Capelli, we offer a variety of coloring techniques, including Balayage, Ecaille Balayage, Ombre, Highlights (thin or thick depending on the desired outcome), Lowlights, Gloss, Base breaks, & Color Correction.
Babylights are super subtle and delicate highlights created using a technique that mimics the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. Hence “baby”lights. This look is very natural looking and creates the ultimate sun-kissed expression on the hair. This technique is very similar to foil highlights, with a touch of bayalage. The amount of hair in the foil is the main difference. Babylights require much less hair than traditional highlights. The result is subtle but beautiful and amazing for blonde on blonde dimension!
Balayage is the “Technique” Ombre and Balayage are very similar, but there are very obvious distinctions between the two! The word “Balayage” comes from another French word meaning “to sweep.”
When applying the color for a balayage, you sweep the color through small triangle sections of the hair onto a board or foil, giving it the natural transition down into the lighter color. In Balayage, there are dark pieces left on the bottom to create dimension and a more natural look. This technique looks like natural sun-kissed highlights throughout the hair. The transition is more natural.Hair Painting
Hair Painting is a huge trend right now.. With this technique, the hair is painted freely, by hand and usually with an actual paint brush and palette. Hair should be laid flat and is typically separated by plastic wrap. The lightener or color is usually not placed in any specific pattern but where it should be seen. This technique creates natural-looking and softer tones. Plus it is much faster than foils and there is no possibility of lines of demarcation!
Ombre is the “Style” and Sombre is a subtle Ombre. The word ombre comes from the French word “shadow”. Ombre is the actual style. It is the transition of a lighter shade from a darker shade. Ombre is great for the more daring girl, it is definitely more noticeable and typically less maintenance. Ombre is kind of like color blocking, there are no dark pieces left on the bottom to help keep it natural, just a nice transition between the colors sort of like a color melt.
While the ombre is a beautiful look, it is also something that needs to be done right! A bad ombre can make all the difference and please don’t try to do it on your own ladies! That’s the style called ombre and no one wants that! Then there is also Sombre, which is the exact same technique however the two colors melting are not as different which creates a more subtle look.
Foilyage is another new trend similar to the above techniques. The process essentially combines the way balayage is painted and the vibrancy that foils achieves with the color. This technique is essentially the upgraded version on balayage and a saving grace for dark hair since it incorporates foil (meaning you get more lift).
I tried this salon out a few months ago and had a great experience. I would recommend Anna as the best stylist at this salon. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and makes my hair looking gorgeous every time! Thanks Capelli!!
Younes is awesome! I was particularly nervous about what he could do with my hair after a major illness and the treatment. His expertise and compassion was so appreciated. He is very skilled — in coloring, cut and hair extension. I’m his customer as long as I live here — and I’m not going anywhere!.
Yelp Review: Younes the owner did my cut. It’s the best cut and style
I’ve ever gotten. Enough said!!.
