'Ombre'', The French termed hair trend,
is the hottest trend now! This look has been spotted on many A-list Celebrities…but is it right for you? This look is not for everyone..... Remember, trends come and go, so don’t think you need to jump on the bandwagon to be cool! This trend features darker more natural hues at the base with a gradual dyed lightening at the ends.
A Few Positives:
1) It has a grown out look to begin with, so maintenance can be stretched out past your average time frame (5-6 weeks). 2) You get that sun kissed, summery, beachy, look any season....creating fun dimension and movement at the stroke of the brush at anytime you want!
4 things to consider before taking the plunge into Ombré:
1) Consider your profession and lifestyle
Not every workplace is supportive to the funky, high contrast bold version of this trend. A more subtle approach is your safest bet, with tones only being 1-3 levels apart.
2) Shades must compliment your skin tone and wardrobe choicesYou can choose 1-3 shade to create the Ombré effect, but the colors must work with your complexion, and not distract from your clothing.
3)The more creative the color choice…the more maintenance required to maintain vibrancy or depth of the color
4) Make sure you see an experienced professional. An Ombre' can be beautiful, however an Ombre' gone wrong can be a disaster resulting in a bad look, more investment to fix and/or compromising the condition of the hair.
