Do you want to make a change, but don’t want to dare a new haircut or dye your entire hair? Or do you just want to spice up your hairstyle a little? Then highlights are the perfect solution.
Bronde: light and dark highlights
The term Bronde is composed of the English words ‘brown’ and ‘blonde’. Mixing blonde and brown highlights creates a natural summer look. This hair trend not only flatters every complexion, but immediately gives it a sunkissed effect.
Unlike the Ombré hair trend, the course at Bronde is much softer and more fluid. The individual highlights mix together to form a natural play of colors.

Ombré: course from dark to light
Bloggers, models and actors love this latte macchiato look. What is special about this dyeing technique: the contrast from dark to light.
Translated loosely, Ombré-Hair means ‘shadow hair’ and describes the dyeing technique in which the hair remains dark at the top and is dyed light at the bottom. The approach is held up to the ears in brunette to dark blonde tones and then changes to a light blonde up to the tips.
Sombré: More natural than the ombré look
Naturalness is a trend: the dyeing technique Ombré is also developing and presents itself as ‘Soft-Ombré’ or ‘Sombré’. With this highlighting technique, hard edges are avoided to create a much smoother transition. The lower highlights are only two to three shades lighter, not four to six shades like the ombré look.
Tortoiseshell: smooth transitions
Soft transitions and little contrast – the hair trend ‘Tortoiseshell’ (also called Ecaille) attaches importance to a soft color gradient.
While the ombré look clearly shows the difference between light and dark, hard contrasts should be avoided as far as possible with the new ‘Tortoiseshell’ dyeing technique. It is important to note that the colors should not differ significantly from the base hair color.
Gentle shades of blonde and brown are particularly popular. The difference to balayage? A generally darker hair color .
Slicing: The classic foil highlights
Slicing is probably the best-known highlighting technique – and is still very popular. Here thin strands are wrapped in foil and lightened. In the end, this creates a change between the darker natural hair color and the lighter highlights.
Chunky Hair: Broad block highlights
‘Chunky’ means chunky or chunky. Unlike ‘slicing’, this highlighting technique deliberately thickens strands of hair lighter or darker. While in the 90s the “chunky hair” was still in stark light-dark contrasts, today the block highlights are a bit more natural due to softer color gradations.
