" OMBRE" n. A French term meaning "shaded." Usually a multicolored stripe, with colors graduating from light to dark. The color effect is woven into the fabric. Generally produced by arranging different tones in the warp. ( The Ombre technique originally came about for fashion designers who wanted to create different colors woven into the fabrics that had a nice blend) As we know...Fashion has a way of transcending into other aspects..."Hair".
Stars everywhere have been embracing a new trend in hair color: Ombre/Baylage highlights...darker hair color on roots offset by painted on, sun kissed ends. Ombre is not a new technique, but the abundance of stars sporting it lately have brought new focus to this trend.
The highlights are easier on your wallet, since they are super easy to maintain (roots are encouraged), and depending on the variation of colors you choose the effect can be either subtle or intense...it's totally up to you!
Super chic, and less upkeep
I actually have the Ombre on my hair and I haven't highlighted my hair sense April and we are now in September and I could go another 3 months! I love this Technique, It super easy up Keep and I get non-stop compliments. What I also love about my color is when I go into the sun it enhances my highlights and makes them brighter. Hands Down Ombre color is the best color I have ever had! :)
