The Ombré Hair Trend

By  | 

We have a lot of stars sporting the ombre hair trend. So what exactly is this messy yet sexy look? Ombre hair is accomplished by creating a dark root and then extending downward to a lighter tip.

So I’m guessing you want to know how to pull off the ombré hair trend without looking like the roots are just growing in? Well the best way is to visit the nearest salon and have a professional hairdresser do it for you. But of course, on my case who loves try things myself I’ve decided to play it safe and just add the highlights at the lowers ends of my hair. So the colors aren’t too bright and visible. Unless I’m in direct contact of the sunlight or flash it won’t be very noticeable.

So what do you guys think? I think it looks pretty decent and the eye make-up is not too dark, nor too strong, just subtle and light. I actually used a bronzing powder on my face to add that glow on my face and I’m not sure if I made it too dark. Somehow a dark bronzed line on the cheek makes our face look slimmer. Maybe I’ll go easy on the bronzing powder when I try this look again.
