Hair Trend: Sombre!

So we all know of the ombre trend by now, but you might not be as accustomed to sombre? Sombre is a term for "subtle ombre" meaning that the transition between the two colours is much more gradual using a mixture of highlights and lowlights to create the desired effect rather than block colour.

Sombre hair is a bit more complicated than the traditional ombre where the lighter colour was applied in a dip-dye method. Sombre doesn't always remove all elements of the darker shade from the lower half of the hair.

This style is perfect for those that are already blonde! The ombre required more of a contrast in shades whereas the sombre does not.

It's also great for dark brunettes who want to add a touch of light to their look.
