Ombre

Ombre hair color

ombre from $150

One of the reasons this trend offers so much variation is that you choose where you want your complementary/contrasting color to begin.

As model Chanel Iman shows here, a flattering darker hue at the roots gradually morphs into a lighter cinnamon color -- the color changes in ombre hair can be very dramatic, or more subtle.

Don't be fooled that ombre means you can simply let an old color grow out in a messy fashion, although some women happen upon it this way. Yes, it's a lower-maintenance process than others, but it's still wise to visit a stylist at your salon to have the service done, particularly if you want a drastic color that requires lifting more than two shades.
