Is Ombre over?

Well if you don't know what Ombre hair colour is by now your head may as well be in the sand. It's everywhere in North America. So much so I have not seen a hair trend catch on so fast and so universally then this. Why? Every age group can where it. It's customized depending on how much contrast you like and finally it's LOW maintenance. What is not to like?

Well as a hairstylist, I loved the idea of this technique and seeing how many variations that can be achieved. I personally am getting a little bored with it. I have spent most of my life trying to be different and non trendy. I want to keep one step ahead if not ten in many cases. When something becomes so trendy that the drugstores are coming up with kits for it...for me it's over and time to move on. It has become the Rachel Cut of the 2010's That being said...It's also not going anywhere any time soon. One thing I am trying to do is keep it fresh. Toning the bleach blonds into lovely pastel pinks, blue and grey. changing the base colours and doing more subtle gradual lightness to the ends.

I was in London this past April and I was surprised to see the lack of Ombre. So this very may well be the choking last gasp of this trend. I doubt we have seen the end of it.  Here is my variation of Ombre from my latest Dark Materials Collection
