Ombré hair has been a crowd pleaser for women of all ages with all hair types since it first came onto the hair color scene. Reverse ombré hair, the slightly more unique and daring sister of the classic ombré style, is exactly what it sounds like. Rather than the classic fade from brunette to blonde, reverse ombré hair does just the opposite. While there are some styles that work with that basic principle of that subtle fade from one color to another, others are a little more unique.
In this collection you’ll find 10 ways to style your unexpected hair color and even some unique ways to make reverse ombré hair work for you:
10 Reverse Ombré Hair Looks
1. Tousled Texture
Use a small curling iron (about 1-inch) to create small curls all over your head. Then, use a teasing comb to gently pull the curls apart and create some added texture. Skip the hair product altogether to maintain an ultra natural look.
2. Styled Curls
Follow the same instructions as the directions for the photo above but this time don’t brush the curls out. Then, mist the look with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 to keep the look in place.
3. Sleek Strands
To create this smooth and sleek look start by prepping your strands with Dove Style+Care Smooth & Shine Heat-Protection Spray. Then, run your straightener through your locks to create an ultra smooth and straight look.
4. Soft Waves
This reverse ombré color is as subtle as the waves in the style above.
5. Naturally Curly
Pair your new color with your natural curls and take them up a notch with Bed Head by TIGI Foxy Curls Mousse.
6. Messy Updo
Pull your second or third-day hair up into a messy updo. This look is ideal for any occasion: work, a party or even date night.
7. Loose Braid
You can never go wrong with a classic three-strand braid. Pull the braid apart and flatten it to create an Instagram-friendly look you’ll com back to again and again.
8. Oversized Curls
Use a large barrel curling iron to create fun and bouncy oversized curls. We love how this style looks when worn down, when used as a base for more intricate braided looks, or as the foundation for a fancier updo.
9. Brushed-Out Curls
If you’re regularly curling your hair and you’re looking for a way to change up your routine then use this simple trick. Brush through your curls with a hair brush or comb to create a whole lot of body and texture.
10. At-Home Blowout
Watch out with this style because as soon as you get the hang of the at-home blowout, your friends will be lining up asking you to do their hair, too. The results are chic, flawless, and will give you that coveted It Girl vibe in no time.
