Love the Ombre and Sombre Hair Look – 8 Ways, Celeb Style


There’s no question about it. Your hairstyle, including your hair color, will also be a defining factor of whether you’re fashion is forward or stale. While hair coloring has been quite predictable throughout the seasons, the past three years has been quite special when it comes to trending hair color.

What is Ombre?

Ombre hair coloring abruptly colored beautiful locks in contrasting dark roots and lighter tints. Many have sported this hair trend as total color blocks, visually dividing the top portion of the hair from the tips. The Ombre style has jazzed up many celeb locks, with its very modern and very different take on hair color fashion.

Three of the most beautiful celebrities that have worn the Ombre look just as gorgeously as they are, are listed below.

  • Jessica Biel Timberlake

    The edgy music artist gorgeously put the rock into Ombre. Born with golden brown hair, Gwen Stefani made blonde her base color and had the lower half of her hair colored in black. The result? Top goddess! No questions asked.

What is Sombre?

In contrast with the abrupt color change of Ombre, Sombre is highlighted by a gradient shift between the very dark roots and the very light tips. You can think of it as the more sophisticated version of the totally street rocking style of Ombre. An even subtler version of sombre colors your hair in one base, and uses two or three tones to highlight your hair.

Some of the most stylish celebs have worn the Sombre hair color trend, three of them are enumerated below.
