I've been seriously contemplating on whether I should jump on the ombre hair color trend, but I just haven't been able to make the leap yet. I have pretty light blonde hair, and I'm just not sure my dry, brittle ends could take a coat of red, black or brown color on top of already damaged strands.
The Ombre Hair Color Trend
While going ombre isn't for everyone, it is a fun little experiment to try with you hair, especially if you have dark hair. I find that the ombre hair color trend works best on those with darker hair – I think it just looks better. So if you have brown or black hair, try going a little lighter at the ends!
One thing I would not recommend though, is doing it yourself. I have seen plenty of DIY ombre mishaps, and a salon really wouldn't charge you as much as you think. But don't forget that the ombre hairstyle also looks really good with other, more unconventional colors, such as blue, pink, purple, and whatever else you can think of. Just remember to get it done professionally!
Here are some of my fave ombre hairstyles. Let me know what you think and also if you've done it or you think you might!
