Ombré Hairstyles - Our Top 14
Ombré Hair: Stunning from hairline to tips
Ombré - this hairstyling transforms boring long hair into a wild mane. The hair’s color gradient which ranges from dark to bright tips, is not just a summer trend, but also has some very pragmatic aspects: Continuous dying of the roots or its careful covering with hats or caps is becoming obsolete. Say hello to a new kind of imperfection and the comeback of your natural hair color – at least until your cheekbones!
Did you know? We owe the casual ombré hairstyling look to a hairdresser named Harry Josh. Brazilian model Giselle Bündchen was one of his customers and she preferred to wear her hair naturally bleached by the sun. That’s how she was used to in her native country Brazil. Her stunning ombré hairstyling caught the interest of US "Vogue" chief editor, who reported extensively in the magazine about Harry Josh and the new hairstyling look called “ombré”. And that was not only the starting signal for Josh's career, but also for the splendid ombré hair trend look who thrills models, celebrities and of course, very normal women as well.
Ombré strands: deliberately undone
You are rid of dying your strands again and again? Wonderful, then you get the ombré effect, so to say, almost for free! Wear your hair in a new way – with a visible hairline. But even those who wear monochrome hair colors and would love to fancy ombré are welcome to try the bright summer hair look. It’s simply a look who imitates sun and sea water bleached hair of surfers and beach girls in a very natural way. For ombré hair, the lower part of the hair is lightened, while neck hair and hairline remain untouched or are colored in a darker tone. Good to know: there should be a smooth transition between the two hair colors in ombré strands, because ombré hair is the more subtile version of the Dip-Dye hairstyling where the difference between two hair colors is intentionally featured. The transition in ombré hair is created with thin and light, very fine strands which are pulled upwards in the direction of the darker hair.
Color gradients for ombré hair
From soft caramel tones to mild honey blond or dark brown latte macchiato brown changing to chocolate brunette or wheat blond that turns into bright beach blonde: The great thing about ombré strands is the fact that the hair is not permanently stressed by the color scheme. Therefore, ombré hair is not only quite trendy, but also easy in terms of hair care! But you should pay particular attention on the tips: Treat them with a rich and nutritious hair mask on a regular basis to keep them soft and healthy. That’s how you can easily avoid brittle and damaged hair tips.
Cool looks for ombré hair
Of course, medium to long hair with ombré strands looks particularly spectacular. But a sophisticated half-up hairstyling in which a part of the hair is pinned up and the other part light, loose and open, can be a real eye-catcher. Even a fluffy Chignon or an Updo with accidentally falling strands surrounding the face fits quite perfect to trendy ombré hairdressing looks. Also very cool with ombré: a Long Bob hair style, interrupted by bright ombré strands that light up the classy look and gives it a delicate two-tone color scheme. And this is exactly what ombré means: A look which combines casual wave flair with great hair styling!
