What’s the Difference Between All-Over Hair Color, Highlights, and Retouches?

It’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed when it comes to hair color says Albert Amin @Albert Amin Salon, especially when telling your hairstylist what you really want. What’s “hair contouring”? What about “balayage”? There are too many new hair color terms to keep up with. But luckily, all-over hair color, highlights, and retouches are the three basic hair color techniques to know.  To help you with your quest for the perfect hair color, we’re going to define each one in no uncertain terms.

We’ll start with the most simple hair coloring process.


Also commonly called “single-process hair color,” all-over color is a one-step process that involves coating the hair with a single shade.

Within all-over/single process hair color, there are three levels: semi-permanent, demi-permanent, and permanent.

As their names suggest, they vary in strength and in how long they last. Permanent color, obviously, lasts the longest. It’s also typically the only all-over color that is ammonia free.


Demi-permanent hair color is far gentler on your tresses, but in exchange, it doesn’t last quite as long. It generally only lasts 24-26 shampoos.

Of course, you can probably guess by now that semi-permanent hair color is the gentlest—and the fastest to fade. If you’re not quite ready to commit to a color, you can always try out a semi-permanent shade before you take the plunge.


In essence, hair highlights are meant to mimic the effects of the sun on your hair. You know that perfect, shimmery, sun-kissed look of your youth? Highlights achieve that feat without all that pesky sun damage. Who wants wrinkles in the pursuit of bouncy, beachy hair? Not us!

There are many ways to highlight your hair. The most common way to highlight hair—and the oldest trick in the book—involves applying bleach to the hair and wrapping it in aluminum foil.

When done properly, this style of highlighting can look as natural or unnatural as you want. You can ask for chunky, obvious highlights if you’re looking for a dramatic effect.

On the hand, you can ask for subtle, blended highlights with lowlights mixed in for a more natural, multidimensional blend.

Balayage, also known as “pintura,” it is afreehand hair painting. Each section is painted by hand, it ends up looking as natural as the sun-kissed highlights you took for granted as a kid.


Instead of dyeing the entirety of your hair every time you need a little coverup, retouches simply dye the root.

Because you’re not coating the length of the strands, you end up sparing the ends of your hair the damage they would otherwise suffer.

One important thing to keep in mind about retouches: the roots of your hair behave a little bit differently from the rest of your hair. Your roots are constantly exposed to the warmth of your scalp. This does two major things: it makes the hair at your root extremely soft, and it also makes it more receptive to coloring.

Why is this worth noting?

If you’re not careful, you may end up with hot brassy roots that don’t quite match up with the rest of your hair color tonality. That’s why it’s always a good idea to consult our professional staff for retouches.

Balayage used to create a subtle Ombre hair color effect…

We have perfected our skills to spesilize in balayage highlights. This unique techniques allows us to showcase our perfect way of creating natural looking highlights. Balayage Highlights not a regular foils highlights technique. Its done with free hand painting strokes and blending between the regrowth and mid sheft.

Balayage is a French coloring technique that was developed in the 1970s in France. It’s a freehand technique where the color is applied by free hand painting rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders.


Ombre is NOT Balayage. Balayage is a technique. Ombre is a trend. Although the balayage hair coloring technique can create the ombre effect, they are not synonymous. Ombre started with harsh variation between the highly processed ends of hair, contrasting with a usually much deeper tone from root to end.
