Ombre hair is a coloring effect in which the bottom portion of your hair looks lighter than the top portion. To achieve this effect, it is necessary to bleach the lower portion of your hair. Ombre hair is perhaps the most popular idea for any girl now, it is in trend and looks great for every type of hair. You can add an ombre effect to short, midi length and long hair, too, it’ll look great. There are many types of gradations, from the smoothest to the most striking, let’s have a look at them.
There are two types of ombre: traditional, and reverse. The traditional ombre has a lighter color at the tips of your hair than at the roots, while a reverse ombre has darker tips and lighter roots. Traditional ombre is much more popular now because it looks very natural and with some shades your hair will be like sun-kissed. The more subtle the color change, the more natural and sun-kissed your hair will appear.
You can go to a salon or watch videos to ombre your hair yourself. Make sure you buy one designed for dark hair, because that really makes a difference! Also, try to find a dye with bleach built-in, so that you don’t have to bleach and dye your hair separately, which damages your hair a lot. Decide where you want the colors meet, be aware that if they meet too high, it may look like you have grown-out roots. Failing to fully saturate your hair will produce a patchy, uneven result and the same will happen if the product is allowed to dry.
Use a weaving technique (pointy tip of your dye-brush/teasing comb) to pry out teeny-tiny strands above your ears, on your hairline or any other spot in which your hair gets naturally lighter in summer. Check one of your highlights to see if it has reached the shade of blonde that you desire. Voila! Now you have the trendiest hair!
