Ombré

The color

Ombré is a contrast coloring treatment that's created by lightening the mid-lengths and ends, giving a soft gradiant from root to tip. It reminds us of how our hair sometimes looks after a long vacation spent by the sea, when the hair is intensely lightened by sun and salt.

The style

This multi-tonal color is both natural and cool. It goes just as well with a look that's chic and modern as it does with relaxed everyday looks. As for styling, this coloring treatment is best when shown off! Think: a high ponytail or a braided crown that will really put your new hues on display!

Advice

Ombré, which requires little maintenance, is an excellent summer look for those with a big personality!

Bronde

The color

Bronde marks a new generation of hair color. Not blonde or brown, nor hot or cold, but all at the same time, this hybrid shade is a true chameleon! Both subtle and striking, the lightest shades effortlessly reflect light for a glossy finish, while the darkest hues create depth and provide structure.

The style

Undefinable, intriguing, mysterious and sophisticated, bronde definitely has a certain "je ne sais quoi" about it! This look really suits loose hairstyles, so aim for smooth Hollywood waves or tousled beach waves to play up the color.

Advice

Bronde is perfect for women who hesitate between light and dark shades, but want to make a bold statement with absolutely subtlety.
