What Today’s Ombre Looks Like!
Like I said before Ombre is not the same old ombre that you remember there are fresh new ideas out there that you may not be aware of. In 2017, the ombre look is one that gives you a natural vibe, it’s less extreme. Not that extreme is bad because those options are still available to you as well. These days the ombres are only going a few shades lighter whereas before they were a lot more drastic. These looks are often great for brunettes who aren’t used to drastically lightening their hair. The honey hue is also very popular when it comes to brunettes who try ombre styles. Of course, it is because it warms up the whole look. It’s not all about the brunettes however, blondes are more than welcome to try the ombre look as well, any hair color is welcome. Beige colors are great for blonde as they always provide that coveted icy look. There are also the new silver and grey shades that seem to be growing popular by the day.
There are so many stunning and beautiful color options to choose from.
What color you choose for your ombre look should be dependant on your skin tone. You should also take into consideration the color of your hair now. If you are a brunette, it might be best to stay away from the cool tones and instead try a warm tone like honey. Red are always popular and can be used with darker hair or other shades of red. Redheads are known to try golden shades or even a shade of peach. There are so many options for you.
If you are looking for something a little edgier or even glamourous, we haven’t forgotten you either. Maybe you don’t want a natural shade, and that’s okay too. You may still want to take that dark hair and take it to a whole new level by lightening it up. Contrast is good, and there are a lot of people who want the contrast more than they want to keep things natural.
Let’s take a look at the very different style and color options available to you.
