Sombre, ombre, balayage, and dip dye are all variations on a single technique: dark roots blended into lighter and brighter ends. This fall, the softest and most subtle variation ever is emerging: progressive color. Progressive color gradually moves from a slightly darker root to a mid-tone, to a lighter hue at the ends. The melding of one color into the next is seamless, the contrast between levels minimal. It’s the softest, prettiest, and most low-maintenance ombre ever. Click the notes for more examples of this trending new technique. ––  Laura Martin
