5 Trendy Ombré Colors to Try This Year

New looks for your dip dyed 'do. 

With every new year comes new fun hair color trends. And, we’re happy to say, ombré hair colors in every hue are here to stay! We’re expecting to see more warmer tones alongside ashy tints this year. These ombré hair color shades will inspire you to try a new hairdo. With most ombré shades, you’ll need to lighten up your ends to make other colors pop!

After you’ve chosen your ombré hair colors for the year, learning how to maintain them is your next plan of action. Read on to see the best ombré hair colors for 2017:

Ombré Hair Colors To Try ASAP

1. Buttery Yellow

First and foremost, we’re looking forward to a lot more warm tones coming in for 2017, which is a good update from the silver hair trend that’s been ongoing for a while. To keep your ombré looking warm but not brassy, you’ll need to use a purple shampoo such as Bed Head By TIGI Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo. Make sure to follow it up with Bed Head By TIGI Dumb Blonde Reconstructor to soothe your bleached ends.

2. Ash Blonde

For slightly less yellow ombré hair colors, try something in the ash family. These cooler shades make having blonde hair a reality for all skin tones. So, if a yellow tone totally doesn’t work with your skin (since it isn’t for everyone), say hello to an ash shade, which has gray/green undertones that flatter complexions with a lot more pink in them. Cool shades open up a world of colors to people with cool skin tones.

3. Blush Pink

Instead of going for last year’s rosey shades, try a blush hue this year. It’s another tone that’s ever so slightly cooler. This elegant shade takes rose gold and elevates it to a more sophisticated look. We love how this model wears her ombré colors from her natural brown, to silver to blush. Too pretty, right?

4. Ginger Brown

If you weren’t totally into the pumpkin spice hair color trend but are thinking about going ginger, try this shade. It’s a pretty mix of ginger and brown that makes an ever-so-slightly auburn hair color. We love how this look turned out with this simple straight blowout. Make sure that when you’re doing your at home blowout to use a hairspray, like Dove Style+Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray, to seal in your style with shine.

5. Sombré

If you don’t like the total color shake-up look, try a sombré! It’s a subtle ombré in your natural hair color. Really, you’ll only lighten your hair just a shade or two. You can get this look with bleach, and chat with your hair colorist that you only want your hair lightened a little bit. It’s kind of nice that you won’t have to sit under the bleach as long!
