Ombre becomes especially popular in the summer season, when you want to update your hairstyle, but not resort to a radical change of image. A smooth transition from one shade of hair to another is an original way to make a haircut more interesting and fresh. Moreover, ombre looks great on both light and dark hair and does not require adjustment and serious care after the coloring procedure. In this article, we consider the most trendy options using the example of stars - try them already this summer!
Ombre in two tones is a classic option that is popular regardless of the season. With this coloring, the stylist lightens individual strands of hair, while maintaining a smooth transition from one tone to another. The most common shades are chestnut, amber, light brown. Some celebrities are not afraid of experimentation and decide on a vintage ombre, which emphasizes the contrast between two tones: natural and applied with paint.
A two-tone ombre will help solve problems such as regrown hair roots. If you are planning to grow your hair and return to your natural color, but the regrown roots seem like a real disgrace to you, we advise you to visit a stylist and make an elegant ombre of the appropriate shade. This will make the hairstyle look much more natural and will cause much less discomfort.
Do not forget that hair length and color are not obstacles on the way to ombre. Noble red, like Julianne Moore, or dark brown, like Ciara, there is a suitable shade for any options. As a rule, ombre involves a transition from a darker shade at the roots to a lighter shade at the ends of the hair. However, you may well try the reverse ombre. In this case, the colors are distributed in the opposite direction - from light at the roots to darker at the ends. Stylists especially recommend this option to owners of blond, light blond and wheat shades of hair.
Many professionals in coloring will advise you exactly a multitonal ombre, in which three or more different shades are used. This option really wins in terms of the color scheme of the hairstyle. The stylist makes an indent of 8-10 cm from the roots of the hair and dyes along the entire length, keeping indistinct transitions between different shades. Moreover, each subsequent shade should be 2-3 tones lighter than the previous one. Such a difficult staining is recommended to be done only by an experienced master, taking into account seasonal trends. This summer, combinations of platinum and ash or light blond strands are popular (see also: "The main trends in coloring for spring and summer 2019").
“Winter and summer in one color” is definitely not about ombre. While bikini season is in full swing, stylists urge us to walk interesting shades of hair and not be afraid to experiment with their combinations. Color ombre is a good start for those who have never gone one shade darker or lighter in color.
As a rule, colored ombre is performed from the middle of the hair length, while the shade changes in the horizontal direction. Keep in mind that bright colors are saturated coloring pigments that are more likely to negatively affect the health of your hair (read also: " Should I be afraid of ammonia in the composition of coloring products?
