Ombre hair is that half brown, half blonde look where the tips of your hair look ‘dipped’. The style is sexy in an edgy way. Ombre is a French word that literally means shaded and it is a hot trend in hair color this year.
We think it’s important to share with people considering Ombre is that it is not something you want to try at home. This is a coloring technique has to be done properly or else you’ll end up looking like you have over-grown roots. The difference with over-grown roots is that over-grown roots typically look like two colors that don’t match with a distinct borderline. When our colorists do Ombre at Avant-Garde Hair Salon, it is obvious that the effect was intended.
Most people ask to see samples of a salon and Colorists work, so we’re pleased to share this video by clicking the link below to be taken to our Official Avant-Garde YouTube Channel and watch our team perform Ombre on the girl below.

The Ombre is meant to be a gradual fade of color that should be feathery and subtle. There should be no in-between. The colors must be chosen wisely so it’s definitely a smart move to have a professional Colorist do this for you. The colors chosen must complement and fade into each other.
So why should you give the Ombre technique a try?
- It’s a low-maintenance hair color technique.
Ombre is a fairly easy hair color look to keep up. For the least maintenance, go as close to your natural hair color as possible near your roots, then gradually go lighter down the hair shaft.
- Use it as anti-aging hair color trick.
Ombre is actually a way to imitate the hair color of your childhood. Remember when you’d get so much sun in the summer that your hair would naturally lighten? Ombre hair color gives off that youthful look.
- It is an easy way to grow out your roots.
The whole purpose of the effect is to make it look like you’re growing out your roots on purpose.
- Ombre is a sexy and edgy trend.
This can be a fresh and unique look for you. It’s casual and looks like you’ve been at the beach all summer. When done right, it’s an extremely flattering way to “go lighter.” If you’re thinking about going blonde but feared that it wouldn’t work with your complexion, Ombre hair color is a nice compromise.
