Ombre

The newest hairstyle trend that seems to be taking over is ombre. What is ombre, you ask? It’s a two-toned hair color that gradually fades as you move from roots to tips. When done in a subtle way, it can be flattering. However, it seems that more often than not, it’s just a bad idea. Still not sure what ombre is? I’ll show you.

Subtle ombre color done well…

And ombre gone wrong. Sorry LC, you’re usually a fashion icon but it kind of looks like you just haven’t dyed your hair in awhile…

A better take on the ombre trend (in my opinion) is ombre nails! Same rules apply – gradual change in color. There are two ways to rock this look. Option one, paint each nail a progressively different shade from the same color palate. Or option two, create an ombre effect on each individual nail so that the color becomes darker or lighter as it moves towards the tips of each finger.

What do you think of this look? I’d go ombre nails over ombre hair any day.
