Its another Thursday, and as promised I have another hot trend ruling the beauty scene. Yes, its Ombre hair. I’m sure a lot of people don’t know this, but Ombre is actually a french word gotten from the verb Ombrer, to shade (please bear with me, I’m a french language graduate). Ombre hair refers to hair fading from dark to light or from light to dark, so instead of one color from the roots to the tip, we have a sort of gradation of color from dark to light or from dark to light from the roots to the tip.
A lot of people are braving this trend, and I think I’m definitely going to join the bandwagon of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Keke Palmer, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus (yes even with her short cut, c’est possible) and of course my style inspiration, Rihanna are on.
I personally think this trend is so chic, and even though it is high maintenance, it gives that fun and relaxed edge to what would usually be perceived as “stiff” hairstyles.
So ladies, this festive season if you want to look amazing, short hair or long, take a page from our Ombre divas and go wild with colour.
I know I will!
