Ombre hair is one of the hottest looks with celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Kristin Cavallari, Ashlee Simpson and Racheal Bislon sporting rich brown hair with honey blond ends. Ombre is French for gradation and what makes this look so hot is the gradual blending of dark roots to light ends. Unlike the dreaded dark roots that show up a few weeks after you get your hair colored, this technique is much more subtle and the dark sections of your hair are longer.
Ombre hair a the perfect look if you want to grow out your natural color. It is also a great look for women over 40 because it gives you a youthful look. Ombre hair is also much more natural looking than stark highlights and gives you the look of being in the sun all summer. You can also have more contrast if you’re daring enough. Lady Gaga had Ombre hair with her signature blond and bright yellow on the ends. You can have any color combination depending on the effect you want. Ombre hair works for any hair texture and looks good on straight, wavy and curly hair. Let your stylist design a color combination and gradation that will look great on you.
