Ombré Color at it's Best

by Jennifer Stepp, Senior Colorist, Azur West

Flipping through fashion magazines, you can’t help but notice that Ombré is a popular color trend.  Ombré is French, meaning to shade or graduate in tone. Hair stylists use Ombré to describe the hair that begins dark at the scalp and changes tone through the ends of the hair.

As we enter into Spring and move into the warmer Summer months, Ombré can provide you with that “just back from a beach vacation” look.  Much like the perfect hair color achieved by a younger person who spends their days playing in the sun, the hair farther away from the scalp will be lighter than that which is closer to the head. Since this effect is more natural, it also requires much less maintenance than other color techniques.  You can use Ombré to be as strong or as subtle as you wish.

You have probably seen Ombré primarily on blondes, made popular by celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Cavallari and Drew Barrymore. In the photo below is an example of a blonde Ombré I performed on our salon's client, AshLee. But for the more daring, Ombré can be used in a variety of colors. Just check out this beautiful Ombré featuring reds and pinks on our client, Michelle.   

Call us at Azur West at 713.400.2987 for a complimentary consultation for any of our popular color services. Whether you want to try Ombré or achieve a palette of rich tones by using the Balayage technique or traditional foils, we can find the perfect color for your hair.
