What is an Ombre’ ?

Ombres in Destin

The word ombré comes from the French word “shadow”. Ombré is the progression of going from a darker root to very blonde ends. It is the transition of a lighter shade from a darker shade. Generally, ombrés work best on brunettes because it is the least subtle of all the techniques. This is what younger women are getting away with now. That technique is dramatic. Ombré is great for the more daring girl, it is definitely more noticeable and typically less maintenance. An Ombré is kind of like color blocking, there are no dark pieces left on the bottom to help keep it natural, just a nice transition between the colors. While the ombré is a beautiful look, it is also something that needs to be done right! A bad ombré can make all the difference and please don’t try to do it on your own ladies! That’s the style called Homebré and no one wants that!

There are a few rules to follow. This technique is done with a high volume bleaching powder. Do tone this technique with a softer shade for blending purposes. I personally use a color gloss to finish. After any bleaching service I like Olaplex. This will ensure stronger hair with less damage. Use a non sulfate shampoo and use natural oils on the ends as well.
