The best celebrity Ombre

Tuesday, 13 August 2013

As big as it was, it seems the Ombre hair trend is slowly coming to an end. The lovely Hollywood ladies who sported the style have moved on to new colours and new cuts, and our hairdressers are no longer trying to convince us to try this fashionable trend.

Whether in or out, we still have a soft spot for this two-tone style and would definitely try it again in the upcoming summer months. Here, our selection of the hottest celebrity Ombres.
Celebrity Ombre
Rihanna gets it just right with the subtle change from medium to golden brown. Her loose waves look absolutely gorgeous against her glowing skin! Kate Perry’s tried Ombre with various colours, but we still love this pale pink and blonde combination.
Celebrity Ombre
Ciara takes re-growth to a whole new level with this dramatic dark brown to blonde Ombre, while Rachel Bilson’s subtle locks remind us of summer hair growing out. Alexa Chung shows that even short hair can pull off the Ombre look.

So what do you think, Beauties – to Ombre, or not to Ombre?

    I’ve never really been in love with the ombre look, but Rihanna and Rachel Bilson both look gorgeous with ombre hair!

    Ombre, as long it is not actually roots growing out.

    Prior to this article I didn’t know this trend was called ‘ombre’ but I’ve now been schooled. What will I do without BeautySouthAfrica? I personally love this faded look and will definitely still wear it.

    You guys missed Aaliyah, that was a true style icon, an original. She did red ombre when ombre was not even

    Tricky because if not done right can look very tacky.

    A look that can be lovely or trashy – depends very much on the person (not too sure if I’d give it a try).

    I like Rachel’s the most. The dark colour is rich without the lighter tones washing her out and looking cheap.

    I think Rachel Bilson nailed it. Ciara (although I like her music) needs to re-do her roots or something because it looks trashy. I like the Ombre look, I think it’s fun and definitely something to flirt with in summer but with that said, it needs to be done properly..

    I think it is beautiful and should never go out of fashion.
