This summer, why not try something a little different? How about altering your hair’s natural hue just a little bit? I’m talking about Ombre. You see it everywhere and on everyone, including celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker and Shanae Grimes. The look is super beautiful, effortlessly stylish and reason number one-natural looking.
To ombre one’s hair is to have dark roots and lighter tips or vice versa, which makes growing it out very easy. This is done by freehand coloring or lightening selected pieces of hair. Its versatility is what makes it so popular. Another reason women love this look is that you can leave more time between your hair color appointments, which gives you more free time in your life.
Gone are the days when the zebra stripe look was in. Women want beautiful hair, with less upkeep and more originality. Ombre is being done at many hair salons here in NYC, and it isn’t going anywhere for a while. This hairstyle can be worn well into autumn, so no worries about looking outdated anytime soon. It also goes well with the feather extensions that are seen about town.
I do not recommend that you try to do this at home by yourself, no way. Your best bet is to do your research and find an expert at a salon and head in for a quality consultation. There are lots of qualified colorists that will be more than willing to provide this service for you. Don’t forget to take along a photo of what you would like to see your hair look like; they really are worth a thousand words.
Whether you are going for a bold, drastic color contrast, or maybe you want a more subtle look, ombre is the way to go.
