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

    The Kang of the south and the Snowman may link up and give us a duet album very soon!! I'm here for this!! They both make trap music but with different deliveries which can result into hotness.
    In an exclusive interview with Billboard, T.I. says he's ready to get started on "Dope Boy Academy" which I am assuming would be the title of the album. This year duet albums were the way to go. We had 21 Savage & Offset and as of recent Fabolous and Jadakiss released their highlyanticipated project.

    Hip-Hop Mogul JAY Z had an interview with Dean Baquet for T Magazine, where he discussed being black in Trump's America, therapy, his relationships with wife Beyoncé and former friend Kanye West.
    It's no secret that Ye and Jay are no longer on the best of terms. However in this interview Jay elaborated on the complicated relationship;
    "Hopefully when we're 89 we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that. You know what I'm saying? There's gonna be complications in the relationship that we have to get through. And the only way to get through that is we sit down and have a dialogue and say, 'These are the things that I'm uncomfortable with. These are the things that are unacceptable to me. This is what I feel.' I'm sure he feels that I've done things to him as well,"
