The hair trend currently all the rage right now is “Ombre” hair, which is when you leave your roots your natural or a darker color while the ends are dyed lighter hues. This look is sexy and chic, and it is a great way to add some style. There are many different ways to sport this look, and you can find that many A-list celebrities have opted to Ombre their hair too.
Recommendation: The Ombre hair style is best left to the professionals. The “Do It Yourself” approach works great with some looks, but is not advised when it comes to Ombre hair. Your hair stylist knows just the right techniques to make your Ombre hair look fabulous. Depending on your hair length and whether you want a subtle or striking style, there are many different ways you can achieve this look. Check out these photos of some celebrities for examples of different Ombre looks.
Lauren Conrad has very long hair with lighter brown roots. The color very gradually gets lighter, giving it a very sweet and classic effect.
For a more dramatic look, you can Ombre your hair like Raven Symone. She went for a more obvious color change instead of going for the gradual effect. It’s a more striking change that can add a little edge.
You don’t need to have longer hair to achieve the Ombre look. Rashida Jones looks so trendy with her chic haircut and a gradual color change starting mid-shaft.
Feel a little daring? Go for a more exaggerated take on the Ombre look like Drew Barrymore has. Leave your roots dark and at about ear length or higher start going for bleach blonde. Sassy!
We didn’t forget about our blonde friends! To achieve a sexy and sophisticated look like Cameron Diaz’s, leave your roots a dark or dirty blonde, and gradually get your tips to a bleach blonde color.
Ask your salon professional for advice when deciding which hues and styles are right for you. Trying a new look like the Ombre style can be an intimidating decision for any girl. But be bold! Ombre you hair! It can give you that edge you have been searching for.
