Ombre hair ideas for every taste
What is ombre hair?
Ombre hair has become a worldwide phenomenon. It literally means “shading”. Therefore, your hair is darker at the roots and it gradually becomes lighter towards the end. Although, people have become super interested in experimenting and you can see all kinds of color combinations, as well as hair, which is the other way around – lighter at the roots and darker at the ends. It seems like the more interesting the color is, the better the ombre effect. Although, you should probably keep in mind the fact that it is not easy to achieve this effect. First of all, your hair should be bleached and dyed afterwards. For darker hair you might even need more bleaching before applying the color. What’s more, some more intricate colors need to be applied twice. They might also be a bit harder to upkeep, since they wash off easier. So, you might need to book an appointment at the hair salon once every two weeks, for example. That’s why, you should carefully consider what would be easiest for your type of hair and which color would be the easiest to apply and actually stick.
Blue tones are perfect for darker hair
What is the difference between balayage and ombre?
This is a question that is being asked quite often. Balayage is the technique used to make an ombre. However, the difference is that with balayage the hair looks more as if it was highlighted. There are still darker roots, but not all ends are lighter. Some are left in the same color as the roots. On the other hand, with the ombre your hair is entirely colored. Gradually, from darker to lighter or the other way around, it doesn’t really matter. Balayage is very popular, as well. And, if you are looking for a more subtle effect, maybe you should try it before fully committing to the ombre.
