What started out as a trend that everybody thought would soon turn into a fad doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! … I think people love the Ombre look because, besides being very low maintenance, it allows people to play with colours while keeping the colour that’s most flattering for your complexion near your face! Although Ombre started out as a trend around two years ago, it is now starting to be seen as a more mainstream look as regular women all over the world (not just celebrities and trend setters) are embracing the look. According to Yahoo News “2013 is the year the ‘Ombre Hair Trend’ will become the definitive look, as more and more women try Decolour Ombre kits at home”. Personally, I am thrilled about this as I started out with a subtle Ombre look last year and I am no where close to wanting to retire the trend!
The Ombre hair trend has been around for a long while now … almost too long to consider it just a trend anymore … and rightfully so because it is such a universally flattering look that compliments almost anyone since you can wear it long or short and in a huge array of tones and colours. To top it off, it is quite low maintenance since you don’t have to worry about touching up your roots very often! Personally, I love to lighten my hair in the summer because I just feel like lighter hair usually looks nicer with summer fashion and makeup trends. Also, it gives the hair more dimension and makes it look more ‘sun kissed’ … So I decided what better way to lighten my hair for summer, than to try the Ombre trend on it.
