Ombre translates from French quite literally to mean "shaded", think of a gradient of color and for hair a gradation of color from root to tips! It is a hot celeb trend that you should try, with a color professional of course. This would be my trend of choice if I wasn't working my way to a full head of blond hair at the moment. It is so now and really ridiculously cool!
Reasons to try...Low maintenance! You might just put your colorist out of business without those 6 week root touch ups and it's also a great way to grow out roots. This color trend works best on longer hair to really take advantage of the color gradation.
