Ombre –– the graduation of shade from dark to light –– splits hair color lovers in two. On the one hand, there are those that love the sensational melting effect of multi-tone effects; on the other, there are those who find it passé (ombre has been in the big cities for a few years now) or garish. With this debate, we will do well to remember hair is an accessory to enhance your natural charms –– if ombre helps you beautify, do it. This image is a great example. Classic long length with chocolate-caramel to wheat-blonde ombre is pretty, vivid, dynamic and attractive. It can be used to brighten features while spotlighting texture for a perfect modern style.
