Our Tips & Advice
Subtle and flattering, there’s an ombre for every hair type, length, and colour. If you’ve got this trendy colouring technique on your agenda, but aren’t quite sure how the process works and what colours you can play with – or just want endless dip-dyed inspiration – you’ve come to the right place.
From expert guides explaining the key differences between balayage and ombre, to inspirational galleries featuring an array of subtle and daring colours that pair perfectly with this on-trend technique, you’ll find everything you need to know about ombre right here.
There are a lot of things you need to consider before getting an ombre dye job done. For instance, you should know the effects you want to achieve. If it’s subtlety you’re after, natural ombre hair colours should be your calling card. But equally, if its dramatic colour (say red, pink, purple, blue or green) you’re after, this technique is trumps.
So, what are other things you should consider before getting ombre hair? Wondering if you can pull off reverse ombre hair? And how exactly can you maintain your ombre hair after you’ve got it done? (Hint: the biggest issue with ombre is that you are lightening the ends of the hair, which are usually the most fragile. The trick is to incorporate a restorative strengthening treatment into your hair routine, to help keep your ends and hair in general healthier-looking!).
