All about Ombre!

By: Don Stacy Patronelli

I'm sure you have seen the word "ombre" before and are curious. Well, the word "ombre" comes from the French meaning of shaded or shading. The colors normally start from the darker roots and gradually get light until the ends. There is also a reverse ombre which means it starts out lighter at the roots and gradually gets darker at the ends. It is usually made for a low maintenance style.

There are a few things you want to consider before getting the ombre. First of all, you want to make sure this hairstyle is something you want because, it can be drastic and all of  the attention is on you. You also want to make sure that you find the correct colors to compliment your skin tone. I.E.; fair skin tone: ash tones, subdued blondes, golden caramel tones are your friend. And, most important is that you have previous color, the ombre effect will not come out correctly unless you go to your hair stylists for some color correction to remove the previous color! 

There are many options that you can do with an ombre so, be creative and have fun!
