So many celebrities embraced the ombre hair trend in 2011 that it's a little played out but still remains popular this year. Basically ombre hair is darker roots gradually fading to lighter tips. This hair color looks best when it's subtly blended. Find out how to get ombre hair.
Red hair is in once again this season, from deep auburn to light strawberry blonde. The hottest shade is a rich coppery red that is vibrant but not so bright that it can't be worn in a professional environment. Copper shades look great with almost any skin tone, but talk to your stylist to see if you need a warmer or cooler hue to look your best.
Balayage is a process of highlighting the hair by painting on the product in a sweeping motion. The stylist has much better control of the application with balayage than with traditional techniques. The result is very subtle blonde and honey highlights that look natural. Balayage provides multidimensional color and allows for better outgrowth. In the beginning, you will need at least three appointments spaced six weeks apart to really build up the color. From that point, you could go four or five months without needing balayage, just getting a treatment to freshen the color every six weeks.
Rainbow hair is all the rage right now. If you can't fathom this look all over your head, start slowly with just rainbow shades at the tips, or instead you can add rainbow extensions without the commitment. Check out these tips to make rainbow hair tasteful.
