Short or long
Speaking of short hair, ladies who’ve braved a crop can also get in on the action. Choosing a shade or two lighter is a great way to add texture to the length. Dark roots and blonder tips show off the variation of a choppy layered cut and works so well with curls. But going really dramatic is the absolute best way to create contrast with a sleek bob.
There is a Balayage, Ombre style for you.
For longer hair, it’s all about having the confidence to try something more dramatic. Gone are the days of barely-there-grown-out-roots-from-last-summer. We’re looking at ridding that boho beach babe look that was all over the UK come festival season, and creating dramatic contrast with platinum blondes and gorgeous reds.
For men and women!
Jared Leto, actor, award-winner and star of Dallas Buyers Club, rocked the Ombre trend at the Oscars, proving that even men are getting in on this. The forty-two year old sported a barely-there two-toned dip dye, looking more like natural sun kissed hair than anything from a bottle.
Ombre for men may sound like a top aftershave only available in the poshest of department stores, but we’re thinking come spring and summer more men will be opting for this two-toned look, especially as a huge trend in men’s hair cuts in Northampton has been the undercut; short sides, even shorter backs, and length on top.
This style can be curly or straight, slicked or messy, so it makes a graduated look even easier. Choosing subtle colours would work wonders on revamping any style.
