Ombre pronounced “om-bray” comes originally from France.
It’s actually meaning translates to “shaded”.
Ombre is a colouring technique where a darker base colour is gradually lightened along the lengths, usually around the mid-way giving a sun kissed effect.
Ombre should be a seamless graduation from darker to lighter.
Ombre is a very popular look as it’s very easy to maintain at home. Thanks to the gradual colour graduation, as your hair grows out, the light sections subtly move further down the tips of your hair.
Ombre is often confused with Dip-dye which has little or no subtle graduation.
