Ombre is HOT!

Ok Ok Ok... This trend has been around for some time now and I am still in love... The Ombre hair coloring technique is EVERYWHERE!...

Ombre- The hair world borrowed the term 'Ombre' from the french word meaning shaded or shading. Ombre hair color is generally darker at the roots through the mid-shaft and then gradually gets lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends. It is usually achieved using a balayage technique and is ideal for clients looking for a low-maintenance style

This technique can be achieved using various methods and colors.. You can always bailage with your choice of bleach and developer. I recently used this techinique on my virgin hair that I installed a few weeks ago and I am IN LOVE!

I used a only a few materials!!!

1. Kaledicolors Bleach (Neutral).... I love this bleach because it comes with a toner to ensure a refined look and minimizes the step of toning for yourself!!!

2. 40 volume developer Pure White by Clairol- I used 40 because I did the technique on extensions so I had room to shy away from unwanted damage... I also cut processing time by using a higher volume developer.

3.Non metallic bowl and brush for application. I chose the large brush to speed up my process and ensure saturation of the desired area!

4. You can use foils or free hand it depends on your comfort zone!...

I love this look it gives off edge and softness at the same time here are a few celebrity looks...

Here we have the lovely Ashlee Simpson! I enjoy her look she exaggerated the gradual color from dark to light and made it work! I like how she kept the hair textured... it gave off more dimension in the look! Good job!

Raven Simones beautiful tresses!

Keke Palmer has fun with her color and the tones compliment her complexion PERFECTLY!

I randomly found this pic browsing... It isn't really the classic Ombre technique but her stylist vamped it up and i APPRECIATE it!... The look is edgy and genius all the while!!!

Now I am sure all of you are familiar with the color craze!!! OMBRE!! If you were not hopefully you gained knowledge through this read!


The beauty of my field has to be the instant evolution of trends and how they convert or transfer to other aspects of this field!! Ombre is known for being a hair color techinque....


the NAIL TECHS have adopted the technique and made it work for them... You can choose your color scheme and get an Ombre Manicure! I love this and it just goes to show creativity THRIVES in this industry!!!
