Ombre – The Hot Color Trend

Celebs like Drew Barrymore love this low-maintenance look!


Ombre is a French word that literally means shade or shadow. In the hairdressing world, Ombre refers to graduated color – usually from dark to light – and it’s a super-trendy hair color technique right now!

Ombre color works best on natural brunettes, and, it’s best applied by a professional! We don’t recommend you try this color technique at home!

Instead, talk to your colorist to find out if you have the right color and hair length for Ombre. If you decide to try it out, be prepared for uneven layers of blended color – darker toward the scalp and lightening up towards the tips!
