Check out these images of the hottest new color technique to sweep the nation! Originating with Hollywood starlets, Ombre has become the new “must have” style over the last few months.
In French, “Ombre” means shaded or graduated in tone. The look you achieve with Ombre is much “rootier” and seamlessly fades into lighter ends, giving the overall appearance of spending a summer at the beach. This isn’t only for the adventurous, as each client can have it customized to his or her lifestyle needs. (Think Drew Berrymore vs. Jessica Biel).
Most hair colorists will achieve this look, by painting the color directly onto the hair, using a technique called Balayage, as opposed to foiling.
With our busy lives, not all of us have the time or money to spend at the salon every month. The natural look Ombre creates requires less maintenance, allowing for the client to go longer in between visits.
