    Ombre Hair: Chanel Iman & Naomi CampbellIntroducing Ombre! The French-termed hair trend features darker, more natural hues at the roots with gradually-dyed lightening at the ends. It’s been spotted on plenty of A-list celebs: Chanel Iman, Jennifer Hudson, Naomi Campbell, Raven Simone (see pics below). Finally, a trend that doesn’t require a busy woman of the world to run to the salon every 8-12 weeks for a touch-up!

    Here, celebrity hairstylist R. Obrien Lynch gives his top 3 things to consider before taking the Ombre plunge yourself:

    This style of coloring (in my humble opinion) really became more popular when pop princess Nicki Minaj began rocking colored wigs that lent hues of purple to pink, lime green to blonde, and even royal blue faded to a touch of blonde on the ends. However, if done properly, the process can create quite the bill at the check-out of your favorite salon, so here’s what you should know:

    1. Consider your profession and future aspirations before you go with the bolder shades.
    The A-listers have started a trend that essentially looks like “grown out” color, which, thankfully, makes it easier on those of us who just don’t have the time to traipse to the salon every few weeks for a retouch. However, remember, the more creative a person chooses to be with their color shading, the more attention they may acquire.

    2. Choose shades that will compliment your skin tone as well as wardrobe choices.
    A person can choose one (1) to three (3) colors to shade for the “Ombre” effect. In the warmer months, shoot for lighter, more vibrant shades and in the winter months, choose cooler, more ash tones.

    For a dark chocolate beauty: deep reds, coppers, and cool ash make for beautiful choices.
    For the caramel-coated lovely: rich browns, coppers, possibly even violets (depending on career character).
    For the fair maiden: ash tones, subdued blondes, golden caramel tones will add warmth to her olive skin.

    3. If there has been a previous color, you WILL NOT be able to achieve the “Ombre” effect successfully without some color correction (or maybe even more drastic measures).
    Though it may look as if this now infamous look can be achieved at home, it is necessary to visit a professional establishment for the best results.
