Ombre [Ohm-bre]

"Ombre hair" is one of the big hair trends 2011. Its basically just a graduation of color, from light to dark, or dark to light - looking like your hair has grown out and you have done nothing to it. Some fans of this look is Lily Aldridge, Drew Barrymore, Erin Wasson, Nicole Richie, Rachel Bilson and the pioneer Alexa Chung.

Wanna try? Follow these simple guidelines:
  • Keep in mind that ombré works best with medium to long hair.
  • Starting with the darkest desired shade at the top, you need to go three shades lighter to get to the end.
  • Avoid going blonde if you have olive to dark skin, as your ends might look white.
  • Even if the hairstylist suggests some colors, make sure that the final look isn't very edgy. Here is a suggested palette if you're a brunette: Start with a dark chocolate and end with a light walnut brown.
  • Even if it's a playful look you're after, try not to go too far with the dyeing. Make it easy, fun and natural.
  • Protect your hair with serums and conditioners because it can dry out from the lightening process.
