The Ombre Hair Fever: An Oldie But Goodie!!

April 13, 2012 |  by  |  Beauty, HAIRRRR YESSSSS, Style  |  Share

The ombre [Ohm-bre] hair trend is definitely not new. Just to recap ombre is just a fancy word for a hair coloring technique where the color is darker at the root and then fades into lighter and brighter highlights as you move down the shaft. The key to getting this trend right is making sure the deeper shade at the root is soft and gradually bleeds out.

 I remember seeing Aaliyah rocking this style years ago.  In the last two decades I’ve seen countless singers, models, actresses and chicks famous for being famous dabble with this look.  I’ve come to the conclusion that it comes down to how it’s executed.  I’ve seen Beyoncé rock this trend and look ravishing and then there were times that it just looked…well, not so ravishing. 

I generally like it when the effect is subtle and more natural more so that when the effect is a stark contrast and when the ends seem dull and dry from all of the dying. If you’re thinking about dying your hair this would be a great place to start. Think about it, because of the placement of the color you don’t have to worry about roots, constant touch ups/trips to the salon or dying your entire head, which can be damaging AND costly. So do you plan on giving this trend a try this season? Check out additional pics of it girls below, that pull off this look nicely
