Presenting Ombre hair! The French-named hair incline highlights darker, more common tones at the roots with bit by bit colored helping at the closures. It’s been spotted on a lot of A-rundown celebs: Chanel Iman, Jennifer Hudson, Naomi Campbell, Raven-Symone (see pics beneath). At long last, a pattern that doesn’t require a bustling lady of the world to hurried to the salon each 8-12 weeks for a touch-up!
This style of coloring (in my humble opinion) really became more popular when pop princess Nicki Minaj began rocking colored wigs that lent hues of purple to pink, lime green to blonde, and even royal blue faded to a touch of blonde on the ends. However, if done properly, the ombre hair process can create quite the bill at the check-out of your favorite salon, so here’s what you should know:
- Consider your profession and future aspirations before you go with the bolder shades.
The A-listers have started a trend that essentially looks like “grown out” color, which, thankfully, makes it easier on those of us who just don’t have the time to traipse to the salon every few weeks for a retouch. However, remember, the more creative a person chooses to be with their color shading, the more attention they may acquire.
- Choose shades that will compliment your skin tone as well as wardrobe choices.
A person can choose one (1) to three (3) colors to shade for the “Ombre” effect. In the warmer months, shoot for lighter, more vibrant shades and in the winter months, choose cooler, more ash tones.
- If there has been a previous color, you WILL NOT be able to achieve the “Ombre Hair” effect successfully without some color correction (or maybe even more drastic measures).Though it may look as if this now infamous look can be achieved at home, it is necessary to visit a professional establishment for the best results.
