Lindsay’s love of the “sombre”


We’ve all witnessed the trend of the “ombre” look in the hair world over the past few years.  Some color combinations melted so beautifully, some were much more drastic, while others look like the hair was literally dipped into a bucket of bleach.  When done correctly, I think the look can be stunning,  sassy and fun.  When done incorrectly, it can look like hair color gone very, very wrong.

This season, the new hot trend in hair color is the “sombre” – soft ombre.  Hair genius, and stylist to the stars, Kim Vo has taken the ombre to a whole new level by creating beautiful sombre.  Forget those harsh lines in the hair or an end color that completely clashes with the color at your root.  We’re now moving in the direction of gorgeous, natural, soft looking, shiny, sun kissed hair.

Even better than the “easy” application techniques is the incredibly easy grow out phase. If you are the type of woman who just wants to sass up your natural hair color, you could potentially have this technique done and grow it out however long you wanted with no retouch. On the other hand if you are a woman who gets a root color for gray coverage, you could just maintain your root touch up and have the “sombre” touched up or grow out whenever you want!

Ladies, do not feel trapped with the options you have with your hair!  Experiment and find the easiest way to make you feel gorgeous!
