Summer Hair Trend: Ombré

August 2, 2011 | By | Comments (6)

Summer always seems like the right time to take a beauty risk. From feathers to bold red lips, we have an endless number of ways to play around with our looks. So, in an attempt to step outside the box, I decided to try the latest hair trend: ombré. But in Real Simple fashion, I took a more subtle approach.


Below is my version of this super trendy hair color. It gets pretty light at my tips, but more of a golden brown rather than a brass blonde. I also asked the insanely talented  George Papanikolas to lighten my roots a little so it wasn’t too drastic. I find this modern version of highlights is much easier to maintain (the roots are already there) and so minimal that it seems like natural color I would get from being at the beach–without the UV rays and lightening spray, of course.

What do you think? Would you try this hair trend? Share you thoughts below! (Try not to be too mean!)
