The Next Generation of Ombre

My clients love graduated color or ombre, which I have taken to the next level through color blending.

Instead of having a clear line of dark to light, I blend the lighter pieces within the depths of the hair so there is no point of origin. You have a beautiful gradual effect with an updated technique.

For my clients who are a single process, you can never go wrong with face framing highlights. They can soften a look and compliment facial features.

Being inspired by 1920’s  and 60’s fashion, I see a comeback to hair accessories. Particularly headbands placed across the forehead and floral adornments.

Want to really turn heads? Combine my graduated color blending technique with an innovative loose side braid or tussled up do.

It is not always about cutting your hair to change your style. Color can take your look to a new level. I always find the seasonal changes the perfect time to update my color clients looks.
