Movies, singing, fashion designing, philanthropy –– Mandy Moore has run the gamut of glamor. But this is her most fabulous ‘do! A modern, short and layered graduated shape, cut with a razor for better softness and fluidity, it is a polished and sassy style. The emphasis is on a light and loose, easy to wear haircut that promotes youthfulness and beauty. The dark brown hue with caramel highlights softens the complexion and adds dimension to the shape of the cut.

When, in spring 2012, a client came to ARROJO and asked for “dark roots, bright ends” we knew that the ombre trend –– seen, up till then, on the runways and in editorial –– was trickling to the street. Although some were unsure what to call it, suddenly everyone wanted a soft graduation of color, traveling through the dark, and into the light. So we  started to post about it on Style Noted, using many of the terms that clients were using, so readers could quickly recognize the trend, and then discover what it meant to the pros. It worked. This post on Lily Aldridge’s gorgeous caramel color touch went straight to the top of the pops, and we’re still loving the color today…The dark to light ombre effect shows delicious depth and dimension, and the accent of graduated color is a brilliant way to spotlight the texture in any style. For the original tips on getting this look (it’s still wildly popular and trendy), click style notes.
