Tips for Ombre Highlights


Ombre highlights are all the buzz lately. They’re a low maintenance way to jazz up your hair color, and you can easily match them up with any skin tone. They also work well with most any length style. Whether you go subtle or dramatic, ombre is a great way to add some spark to your style.

Ombre is a fairly subtle way of adding tones and highlights to your hair. The word derives from the French word for shadow, and it’s really a great description of the technique. It gives you an elegant, almost ethereal shift in tone down the length of your hair.

Medium brown hair looks great with auburn highlights flowing to pale blond at the ends. Blonde hair works great in the opposite direction. Go dark at the roots and add a silver tone on your ends. Dark brown hair lightened down to strands of caramel on the tips really brightens up your skin tone.

Want something more dramatic? Give yourself an edgy look with blue highlights on the tips of blonde hair. Another great option is to go for multicolored highlights. On dark hair every turn of your head will reveal a new color combo.
