Say Hello To Ombre Trend


Ombre-Red-CopyOmbre-Green-Copy...It is a different pattern of hair highlighting for women who dare to be bold


“GO bold or go home” seems to be the trending hair language. The ombre hair trend has been in vogue for a while now, but has just become extremely popular and has caught on like wild fire.

It is now incorporating daring and outlandish colours that fashion enthusiasts hitherto never thought of before. Ombré describes the gradual blending of one colour hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.

The word is of French origin and it means shaded or shading. Ombre hair- styles feature darker, more natural hues at the roots and gradually dyed lightning at the ends. The ombré hair trend was wildly popular in 2014 but it seems our Nigerian fashionistas have just caught on to the trend.

The colour mixing started out quite conservatively but of recent, exotic colours such as blue, green, red, purple and pink have found their way into the fashion look-book. Ombre remains one of the hottest hair trends because there are endless options to choose from and because it adds a touch of chic to you hair, making you stand out instantly. The style has been adopted by many Nigerian women of style and doesn’t seem to be going away just yet.

What is more? The ombré hairstyle requires very little upkeep, making it easier for it to remain on trend. These days, the style has expanded to take on various other techniques, including the fading of a natural colour from the roots to a more unnatural colour, such as turquoise or lavender at the tips.

Depending on your skin tone, any colour can be used to achieve this look. However, you should consider your daily activities or work environment before choosing a colour. So, if you have not, won’t you just try the Ombre look?
