The difference between shatush and bronding.

Various sophisticated hair coloring methods are likely to remain in trend for a long time to come. After all, they give natural shades and give the impression that the dyes did not touch the curls. Smooth color transitions and natural tones are especially popular now. But, having decided on such a coloring, it is not surprising to get confused in complex hairdressing terms. For example, what is the difference between shatush and booking? You need to know this when choosing the most suitable painting method.

Methods for achieving natural color

Among the methods of complex coloring of shatush and bronding stand out in that they give a natural look to the hair. These techniques have a lot in common, but there are also differences. Therefore, it does not hurt to find out how shatush differs from bronding.

Shatush, or French highlighting, is the dyeing of some strands in a complex technique that involves combing them, and with a sufficient level of skill, careful shading of the dye composition. This stretches the color into individual curls - from darker roots to the tips of a less saturated shade. To achieve maximum naturalness, the strands for dyeing are taken in different thicknesses. The cap and foil are not used, as with ordinary highlighting.

Bronding is also one of the types of highlighting with coloring elements. The English words blond and brown have merged in this concept. That is, this is a way to lighten the brown-haired woman as naturally as possible, with a soft gradient between the colors, as if the woman had just returned from vacation under the bright southern sun. The strands are dyed in different shades - from caramel to wheat, the main thing is that it looks natural. But the difference in color between the roots and ends should not exceed three tones, so bronding is more suitable for girls with dark blond and brown hair, long or medium length. On short ones, alas, it will not work to create a natural transition between shades.


The differences between these techniques are not so great, but they are.

Zone of the beginning of clarification

When staining according to the shatush technique, the clarification starts farther from the roots than with bronzing. In the second case, the strands are painted at a distance of a couple of centimeters from the roots, and in the first, they recede a little more.

Choice of strands

An important difference between shatush and bronding is the selection of strands that will be lightened. In the first case, they are taken without a specific system, of different thicknesses and in different places. When booking, the hair is divided into sections, the back of the head and temples are often left intact, and the treatment begins from the crown of the head.

The use of paint

Painting in the bronzing technique involves the use of a rather dark color as a background - chestnut, chocolate, brown. Individual strands are painted in a lighter shade, but a maximum of three tones. To deepen the main color, to add volume to the hair, coloring can be applied at the end of dyeing - another, carefully selected tone is applied with light strokes. When using the shatush technique, the curls are lightened with one dye, the color transition is carried out by combing the strands and shading - the tips are lighter, the middle is darker, and the roots are completely natural.
