While ombre is a color trend that’s sweeping Hollywood, it can also be a great look for brides as well. Although some may quickly associate ombre with 6 inch roots and/or a drastic contrast in color, the best ombre color is achieved through a more subtle and gradual diffusion from dark to light. Why is this perfect for a wedding style? Not only can ombre be ultra soft and natural looking, but the color effect can really make an elegant hairstyle pop.
In order to achieve this look, I do not however recommend that you simply grow out your natural color and leave your ends light. Over time pre-lightened hair can get brassy and overprocessed looking and let’s face it, for most of us our natural color can tend to be flat and dull. For an ultra rich look, as pictured above, ask your stylist to give your base (salon lingo for roots) a jolt with a demi-permanent color that adds warmth and depth to your color, as well as a rinse to your ends, to tone hair (get rid of unwanted undertones such as orange) and add moisture and shine.
For your wedding day, consider going back to your “roots” and embrace a more natural color. Not only does ombre color provide dimension, with the caramel and blondes that you love; but it allows you to enjoy a root color that is similar to your natural color. With this option, a bride can really enjoy the best of both worlds.
