You probably already know that ombre hair is one of the hottest trends right now, and actually has been for the last few years at least! Just in case you’re not absolutely certain what ombre hair is, it is hair that graduates from relatively darker color at the top of the hair to lighter color at the ends. Ombre hair looks vary quite widely, from soft and gradual transition from darker to lighter, to, at the extreme, rather a color blocking effect. Besides its look, another reason why ombre hair is popular is that it is flexible in terms of root regrowth, as it makes that regrowth much less noticeable.
How is ombre hair achieved? It is usually done through the bayalage method of highlighting, a method that began in France. If you are interested in having ombre hair, ask your stylist or colorist about what would need to be done, and how the bayalage method works.
Below are some of the hottest ombre hair color ideas right now!
