My beauty obsession of the week: Ombré Hair. Anyone who knows me knows that I have had an ongoing love affair with this look for approximately the last year. However, now that the summer months are quickly approaching, ombré hair has come back in full force! Ombré is a french word meaning “shadow”, or a gradation in color. Essentially, this is what the style entails: your hair gradating from dark at the roots, to light at the tips. After finally trying the look for myself there were a few great things that I discovered. 1) It is possibly the easiest hair color to maintain as the more your roots grow out, the better it looks 2) You can control how drastic you want it to be. Either lighten the tips slightly for a subtly summer kissed look, or go for a more extreme variation by dyeing the bottom of your hair as light as possible. I myself initially tried a more understated version of the ombré to begin with, and then discovered I loved it so much that I went back to the salon and had it lightened significantly more for the Spring! Celebrity fans: Rachel Bilson, Drew Barrymore, Alexa Chung. Below is a link to a step-by-step guide to DIY, however now that this look has become so popular, more and more hair salons are now offering this hair coloring technique at a fairly inexpensive price!
