Standard ombré is so last year. Why would you go for standard blonde ombré when there are a million other ombré colors out there to try? In 2017, we dare you to get creative with your ombré hair, like red ombré or candy pink ombré! To celebrate the year going forward with new, innovative hair dying techniques, we’ve collected our top seven ombré colors for you to peruse. Read on to see different ombré colors you should try ASAP.
Ombré Colors for Your Hair
1. Ocean Green Ombré
It’s no secret we’re totally into green and blue ombré hair. It’s a daring color that always looks cool. You can opt for a mysterious navy-blue ombré, but we’re feeling an ocean green color right now. This lighter, greener shade of blue is much more flattering on a wide spectrum of skin tones than a straight, cold blue.
2. Firey Red Ombré
Is it just us or did this red ombré make it hot in here? This color is so warm and bright, it looks like actual flames! We’re in love, to say the least. If you’re going for a red ombré, be extra careful to wash your hair with color-safe shampoo. Red hair dye tends to wash out faster than other colors so it pays to give it some extra attention. To get truly clean hair while protecting your color, use the Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care Shampoo and Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care Conditioner, every time you wash.
3. Subtle Ginger Ombré
This ginger ombré is giving us serious pumpkin spice hair vibes. Having this ombré shade start high up, near the temples, keeps this color looking natural. It’s a great option for those with naturally auburn or reddish hair who want an extra pep to their color.
4. Caramel Ombré
In 2017, we’re expecting to see a lot more people return to warmer hair colors. This includes ombré, too! Instead of toning your brown hair ombré to an ashy, cool tone, try working towards a caramel shade instead. This sweet look isn’t too sugary, so you can still wear it as a professional adult!
5. Beige Blonde Ombré
We’re thinking blondes will be warming up in 2017, as well! But, for blonde ombré colors, you do still need to use a purple shampoo or mask to keep your hair from getting brassy. The cool tones help to keep your blonde from turning orange! Try the Catwalk by TIGI Fashionista Violet Mask for those cool tones. And as a bonus, it hydrates your thirsty, bleached hair at the same time.
If the dip-dye, solid ombré color isn’t up your alley, try a softer version instead. We like sombre hair because it has the ombré flavor without a huge color difference. To get the sombre look, just have your ends lightened a few shades instead of going full blonde. This subtle color grows out beautifully — and looks downright natural.
7. Cotton Candy Pink Ombré
Natural colors not your jam? How about this gorgeous pastel pink? We love that this transitions from a cool, ashy gray color into a subtle rosy pink. It takes the standard hot pink ombré and makes it much more modern.
