If you prefer to dip your toe into a hair color trend rather than dye your entire head, ombré is the way to go, says Aura Friedman, a colorist at Sally Hershberger Downtown Salon in NYC. “In my eyes, I look at ombré as a variation of naturally sun-kissed hair,” Friedman says. “So whether it’s taken to the extreme — where your hair goes from dark brown to light blonde or even from your natural color to a shade of the rainbow, or the way it’s evolved now to being more subtle, the whole idea is derived from a look that you’ve been surfing and your hair was lightened by the sun.”
I’ve also recently gotten an ombré hair do (for the first time in my life! which you should have seen if you follow me on Instagram) so there’ll be a post about it coming next week.
