Get Khloe Kardashian Ombre Hair!

By Dana Farber — March 29, 2012

I first recall noticing the two-toned ombre hair color trend back in 2010, almost 2 years ago (which by fashion standards is an eternity!), and since then, many fashion and beauty blogs have repeatedly announced its demise, yet…it remains. Even high-end brands are getting in on the “fad”. Prada had their models wear extreme color combos at their Fall 2012 Fashion Week show last month:

I was chatting with a girlfriend about this the other day (before she got hers done, and it looks amazing, I may add) and she mentioned that her colorist told her the ombre hair trend came to be because of the downturn of the economy a few years ago.  He hypothesized that women just didn’t have the money (or the time) for the color upkeep so their darker roots grew in, and it was what it was!

Personally, I think this theory is on point — but we’re not here to discuss economics, are we?  Let’s talk hair!

First things first, what exactly is ombre hair color?

The word ombre is French and means “shadow” or “shade”.  In terms of hair coloring, it is the gradual change of hair color from dark to light (root to end) or vice versa.  It can also apply to highlights and lowlights.  The more popular color combination seems to be darkest brown/black to light brown or blonde.  If done correctly, ombre coloring can look oh-so-lovely and add rich dimensions to one’s ‘do.

There are tons of celebrities and style bloggers rocking the ombre hair trend right now, including:

What say you, lovelies?  Do you currently have ombre hair tones or are you going to try it out this year?  Let us know in the comments!

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Bless you!

    Love the blog! I am really scared to do the ombre colors.... I have platinum hair and I haven't seen anything I love yet. Plus it's so hard to get it back to platinum. I have a free beauty giveaway at my site, you should check it out. It is worth $200 in beauty products... and you're a beauty site! Thought you might like it,

    About a year and a half ago, we released a pretty big PLR package called Facing the Facebook Facts. At the time, it was up-to-date and had great information for PLR buyers to market to the Facebook and social audience.
