Ombre hair: We love this lazy-girl summer style

A few of us here at GL have dyed ’dos, and we’re always complaining about having to constantly touch up those roots! Pool water and the sun are especially harsh for newly dyed hair, which is why the ombré hair trend may be the perf solution for the hot summer months. Ombre hair, a quickly growing craze among celebrities and fashionistas alike, gives us girls a reason to skip our monthly salon trips and grow out those roots—it’s an edgy, low-maintenance look that focuses on contrasting darker, natural roots with lighter ends. It will leave your tresses looking stylish and sun-kissed against your tan. Read on for our dos and don’ts!
 

Dye Dos:

1. Do choose the dye based on your natural complexion. Darker-skinned or tanned ladies should turn to deeper, cooler shades while fairer-skinned gals should experiment with coppery, caramel, and

blonde shades.

2. Do let your roots grow out a li’l bit. Touch-ups are only needed every 3-6 months. Score!

3. Do try out this look on medium to long hair with layers. While this look can work on shorter hair, like Miley's, it’s the most noticeable on long, layered locks.
 

4. Use a nourishing shampoo and conditioner that is safe for color treated hair.
 

We love: L’Oreal Vive Pro Color Vive Shampoo for Color-Treated Hair That’s Normal, $5, drugstore.com
 

Dye Don’ts:

1. Don’t attempt to do-it-yourself at home. Achieve this look professionally to avoid mishaps. This look requires a smooth transition line between two different tones, and this may be difficult to do by yourself. Also, if your hair is already dyed, it can be extremely difficult to achieve this look at home.

2. Don’t go too extreme! The ombré transition between two shades should be natural and not leave your hair looking like it’s two colors split down the middle! Try a shade on your ends that are two to three shades lighter than your natural hair color, like Leighton’s.

 

3. Don’t worry if it doesn’t come out right the first time! If you go back to your colorist and explain the issue, he or she will usually fix it without charging for the color correction.
 
What do you guys think of this hair trend? Do or don’t?
