Trend to Try: Ombre Hair

 


11
Posted August 16, 2012 by

Ombre hair has to be one of the biggest hair trends of the past year – being seen on nearly every “in” celebrity.  I’ll admit that I was not a fan at first, reminded me too much of the eighties (I didn’t like it then), but after seeing it done correctly it grew on me.  One of the biggest mistakes (in my opinion) is having too dramatic a shift in color without any graduation between the two.  To put it more simply as Wendy Williams said during one of her hot topic dishes – when the ohm doesn’t quite connect with the brey!

Here’s a bit of inspiration from some ladies, some I think got it right while some missed the mark – but you may love it.

Teyanna Taylor Ombre Hair

Not a fan of non “natural” hair colors – pink, blue, yellow, clown red, so although she does have some graduation to help the black transition to purple, this is a complete miss for me.

Ciara Ombre Hair

Ciara has gotten the look right, but this one right here?  No ma’am, simply looks like you were too lazy to dye your roots.   But a lot of BHM’ers liked it!  So hey, what do I know?

Naomi Campbell Ombre Hair

Am I the only one who sees Naomi Cambell’s hair and can only think of those horrifying photos that hit the net showing her completely bald edges?  I really feel badly for her, no one should have their hair business put on front street like that!  But anyway, getting back to her ombre look – Naomi did an okay job, it is a bit inconsistent all over though.

Keke Palmer Ombre Hair

I absolutely adore Keke Palmer’s take on the ombre.  The hair fades from one tone to the next flawlessly and the soft down-to-there curls are just the icing on the cake!

Raven Symone Ombre Hair

I like that Raven Symone’s look is a bit different instead of the normal black to blonde, it fades into an auburn red!  I see you rocking your ombre Extension Plus hair (she’s admitted to loving the brand)!  Very nice Ms. Symone.

Khloe Kardashian Ombre Hair

Honestly, Khloe Kardashian is one of the best to do it in my humble opinion.  Plus her ombre tresses are a refreshing change from the dark looks  of all her siblings!

If you are interested in achieving this look at home, here is a simple tutorial by one of my favorite DIY hair gurus, Tierra aka TeasedBlackPearlz.  I think the key to getting the perfect transition is to dye the hair a medium color then lighten the lower portions.

    You mean to tell me that it actually had a name??? I just thought it was called frosting the tips of your hair*shrugs*. The first model, (the one with the lavender hair tips) ..she she should have taken it from back, to midnight blue to dark purple to purple then to lavender. that way it would have looked better.
