Model: Najada; Color & Style by Ouidad Senior Colorist & Stylist Cypriano
Brunettes and blondes, will continue to rock the ombre trend well into Summer 2013. Think Lily Aldridge’s or Amber Heard’s natural sun kissed ombre. It is leaning more toward a gradual, natural effect or what I like to call, “ombre-lights”. The tonality and shade can be determined upon consultation with your colorist.
For deeper brunettes, a golden brown color (1-2 shades lighter than the base color) looks amazing, adding depth and dimension throughout the length of the hair. For blondes, the sky is the limit as to which shade one might choose.
One of the advantages of this look is that it has a very gradual re-growth. It can last for months to come, making it perfect for those that don’t have the time (or budget) to keep up a high maintenance color that would have them going back to the salon every 6-8 weeks.
I used a unique foiling technique to create this look on Najada’s locks. She has naturally wavy, dark blonde hair; so I kept the natural color throughout the roots, coloring the hair mid shaft through the ends and adding a couple of thicker lights in the front for a more dramatic effect. As we can see from the photos, the color looks naturally sun kissed and flows throughout the hair, exploding towards the ends.
