For awhile now, I’ve seen many celebrities like Rachel Bilson, Lauren Conrad, and Sarah Jessica Park rock the Ombre hair look. Ombre is a french word that is roughly translated as shading. Ombre hair color is when a person’s hair color starts from dark to light. The color is usually a gradual or gradient effect.
Pros on having Ombre Hair:
- For natural dark hair gals, like me: No maintenance need for the roots.
- Great way to grow out blond/highlight hair.
- Easier to maintain.
- Looks edgy or rockerish
- Currently in style
- Hair looks amazing when curled.
- Great for medium to long hair.
- Seems to be flattering on most skin tones and face shape.
- If not done right, looks like hair is two different toned.
- Cost a lot of money to have it done in the salon
- If natural hair color is bright blond: this hairstyle will not work. I’ve never seen an opposite ombre before.
- Blond tips may dry out hair
- Dark hair dyed blond usually turns orange, eventually.
- When straighten, Ombre looks a little off.
- Some people just don’t get Ombre and think your roots are showing.
- Not so great looking on short hairstyles.
