RAVE: Ombre Hair
Ombre, a French term that translates to“shaded,” refers to any gradation of color. It’s applied to clothing, fabric, or the latest trend, hair. Countless A-list celebs have the hairstyle and add their own twist to it. Between pop-princess, Nicki Minaj, the always spunky Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake’s new wife, Jessica Biel, the trend has taken on a wide variety of looks. Not only is it low maintenance, it’s easy to do at home and looks great on all skin complexions.
Although it’s most frequently seen fading from dark brown to blonde, the look can be achieved with any variety of shades, and it isn’t necessary to make frequent visits to the salon for a root touch up.
“I have seen this style hair technique all over campus,” freshman Fiona Chadwick said. “I think it’s a really cool and creative hairstyle.”
BeautyEditor.com gives instructions from Luis Pacheco, a Clairol consulting colorist, on how to achieve this look at home. If you’re not daring enough to D.I.Y., Creative Haircuts and Tanning in the Hamden Plaza offers the ombre technique for $50.00. This fall trend is only a shuttle stop away.
