Trending Hair Colors: Ombre

With summer in full swing, we wanted to highlight how the ombre hair trend has remained popular over the last decade. And we can see why! This trend offers a creative way to enhance your look with its striking blend of colors that seamlessly transition from one shade to another. Join us as we delve into what ombre hair is to see if this trend is for you.

What is Ombre Hair?

Ombre is a gradual phase of dark to light. When technique is applied to hair, the roots remain natural or darkened, if need be. The hair fades to a lighter brown, a sandy color, then to blonde ends. 

Ombre doesn’t always have to go from brown to blonde. The color can also start at a dark base and progressively get lighter, too. The objective of the hair is to be gradually blended from one color hue to another, moving shades from dark to light. The key is to blend the colors smoothly or the transition colors will look blocky.

Over the last decade, we have noticed ombre can be achieved with most hair colors, which gives you the freedom to be creative with your hair. We have seen striking ombre hair go from black to silver, brown to red, and even purple to white. 

What is the Difference Between Balayage and Ombre Hair?

Ombre often gets mistaken for balayage. While these two hair trends share similarities, their application techniques and appearance are different. For example, balayage refers to the technique used to give the hair its unique look while ombre is a gradient-like transition of color. 

To achieve balayage, the hair is painted lightly over the surface of the strand, but not saturated until the ends. Rather than using foil, this technique is achieved better by freehand to avoid a harsh contrast. 

A good way to tell the difference between balayage and ombre is how the color transitions through the hair. With ombre, this transition is more dramatic with the color going from dark to light. On the other hand, balayage is more subtle because the bottom of the hair is left darker for a more natural appearance.
