Sombre is a way of coloring the hair so that the hair is brighter at the bottom, and slightly up, subtly and gradually moving into the natural color toward the scalp.
Lots of celebrities have ditched the obvious ombre, and have opted for a grown out summer color, a subtle graduation from roots to ends, a change that is so small but it still makes a big difference. If you want to try this trend you just need a good hairdresser who can perfectly perform the technique.
Sombre is actually traditional ombre – where the top of the hair is dark and the bottom is light, with slight blending between – has evolved into something much more subtle, blended and textured. Lighter pieces are being taken up higher, particularly around the face, and the lower lengths of the hair have ribbons of color running through; it’s a much more wearable, natural look and really enhances any natural texture and layering in the cut.
While we think this look is PERFECT for blondes experts think it’s a good look for brunette hair also, adding soft gold, honey and caramel shades to lighten without the hassle of regrowth.
So if you were not brave enough to try the ombre style or you want to play with your ombre look, go to the hairdresser and ask for sombre. You will certainly be pleased with the change.
