OMBRE’S…The Good, the Bad, and the Over-processed

OMBRE’S…The Good, the Bad, and the Over-processed.

Where to get an Ombre in Destin

Ombres. The word ombre comes from the French word “shadow”.

Ombre is the actual coloring technique. It is the transition of a darker shade to a lighter shade. This technique can be beautiful, or it can be a total disaster if not done correctly.

However I have seen some ombre’s that literally scared me. At first sight it stopped me in my tracks. As a hair stylist of more years than I care to admit I notice most heads of hair. I find myself commenting to myself, ‘Oh! Great cut’, or ‘that color is way to dark for her’. Even I like what the hair stylist was trying to do but the execution is poor, or off.

As a public service, I want to show you all what a good Ombre looks like and what a bad ombre is. I will refer you to the photos above for your viewing pleasure.

Do remember if you are considering this service please bring in a photos and make sure you discuss with your colorist your desired color choices. Make sure they are aware that you want a blending of shades and not an abrupt line in your hair. Ombres can be done with hair color, not just bleach, and come in all shades.
