I’ve just heard about this great new colour technique Brett Walker of Michael Barnes salon on Shaftesbury Avenue, London, has introduced into the salon (although not created) so thought I’d share!
It’s called the Ombre and is due to be one of the hottest hair trends for 2011. It looks gorgeous and the best thing is it is extremely easy to manage and cost effective as the whole point of it is to have ‘roots’!
The colour is placed underneath the top layer of hair as Brett explains: “The difference between Ombre and normal highlights is that they are placed through the underneath layer so the hair looks as if it fades from dark roots and gradually gets lighter through the length and ends.”
Rachel Bilson, Alexa Chung and Drew Barrymore are already champions of this technique, and if you have a look around there are plenty of other celebs rocking this style! I personally think it works best with a bit of texture in the hair, so stock up on your salt spray!!
