The word ombre is French and means “shadow” or “shade”.  In terms of hair coloring, it is the gradual change of hair color from dark to light (root to end) or vice versa.  It can also apply to highlights and lowlights.  The more popular color combination seems to be darkest brown/black to light brown or blonde.  If done correctly, ombre coloring can look oh-so-lovely and add rich dimensions to one’s ‘do.

I first recall noticing the two-toned ombre hair color trend back in 2010, almost 2 years ago (which by fashion standards is an eternity!), and since then, many fashion and beauty blogs have repeatedly announced its demise, yet…it remains. Even high-end brands are getting in on the “fad”. Prada had their models wear extreme color combos at their Fall 2012 Fashion Week shows.

One of my favorite Ombre examples has to be Khloe Kardashian! Everytime I watch her show “Khloe & Lamar” all I seem to focus on is how beautiful her hair looks and the glow it always gives her face and outfits! Check out these beautiful dip dyed inspirational looks! I’m so getting this done ASAP!

About AmOoNa

By no means do I ever try to pretend I know all there is about fashion, but isn’t that the beauty of it? Inspirations come to me daily, from people, colors, moods, photography, even children! As Coco Chanel once said “Fashion is everywhere … in the sky…” this is how i choose to live my life. We don’t need to be millionaires, we don’t need to always have the latest and most luxurious brands, but we will always need to feel beautiful. I believe in simplicity even with my most extravagant dress on. Less is sometimes more in my fashion eye. I love funky, I love colors, I love elegance, and I love class. Fashion is not something I do, it has become a part of who I am. This is me, and my life in the fashion lane…
