Many girls who opt for ombre style, try to make the colors blend into each other in a soft, natural way. But, when you’re going all out with two totally different shades, like brown and grey, why not make the contrast as dramatic as possible?
Brown, Blonde and Silver Balayage
Balayage is a French word which means ‘to streak or to paint’. This is why your stylist or colorist needs to paint the streaks through by hand, unlike ombre or dip-dye which can both be done with foils. The flashes of gold and silver in this style have been beautifully painted on; we can almost see the brush strokes.

Honey Blonde and White/Silver Ombre
The way this golden honey colored hair gently transitions into a futuristic tone of pale silver is so gorgeous, we could stare at it all day. The two shades are shown off by the sleek, poker-straight hairstyle.
When we see and admire an ombre hairstyle, it usually begins with a more natural color at the root and gradually becomes a more outrageous shade towards the ends of the hair. The reverse ombre trend does the complete opposite. This chestnut brown looks amazing on the ends of platinum blonde hair, as do the subtle flecks of silver at the root.
Bold Reverse Ombre
