Ombré hair came out last year but no one was really sure whether or not it would catch on. This spring, we know for sure: ombré hair is in. Looking at celebs like Jessica Biel (one of my favourite examples of the hair trend), it’s easy to see why it’s set to be on our radars for the next little while. Not only is it a more natural look, but it’s super easy to maintain. Who knew letting your roots grow out could be such a fabulous thing?
Nikki Braithwaite, senior colorist and owner of Salon Escape in Toronto says the two-tone look is fashionable and easy to pull off. “Any colour will work and most lengths, too,” she says.
Lily Aldridge, Rachel Bilson and Whitney Port are also great examples of how to rock ombré hair. They manage to pull off that tousled look that seems effortlessly chic. Lighter ends are definitely hot for the summer season (which I am desperately waiting for, by the way). The key is to make sure you keep your ends hydrated and smooth to prevent it from looking like it’s just poorly maintained. I recommend leave-in conditioners and hair masks once a week to keep your locks soft, smooth and hydrated.
“For the younger, fashion-forward generation, this trend is here to stay,” Nikki says. Will you be trying out this look for yourself this spring?
