What exactly is Ombre hair coloring?
The word “Ombre” is a French word meaning shaded or shading. Ombre is basically hair color where there is a gradual blending from one color to another as you go out from the mid-lengths to the ends. Generally, it is a fade to light, but it can also be a fade to dark.
Why do women like Ombre hair color?
Ombre is a great way for women to express themselves and give some creativity and individuality to their hair color and their looks. Women also appreciate the facts that the ends do really appear thicker than the rest of the hair. So women whose hair is slightly dried out, or lacking shine get a big boost by doing ombre.
Another plus is that ombre is not too extreme and looks fairly informal. It permits a fairly wide range of colors. You can go for something bold or have something quite natural.
Finally, ombre is an extremely low maintenance look, as it can be left to grow out very naturally. No need for frequent trips to the Salon!
Why do stylists like Ombre hair color?
Ombre is still very much perceived as a new look which many regular salons do not know how to do, or do not want to do. As a result, stylists in the US and elsewhere find that ombre is a great service to propose to their customers. It is a way of offering a fresh look to their customers ... a look many stylists cannot offer.
