Ombre Obsession

Everyone is obsessed with ombre and it's a trend that is here to stay. However, the traditional ombre, where your hair color gradually goes from dark to very light on the ends, isn't for everyone. Now, there are new ombre techniques coming out to personalize ombre for everyone. Many people are doing a lot less drastic versions so that they are more natural and "office friendly" for professionals. The more edgy ombre lovers are even doing something called "reverse ombre" where their color goes from light to dark on the ends. I consider myself to be somewhere in between the very edgy and the office professional so I used a new ombre technique on my hair. My co-worker and I learned this ombre technique from Matrix Artistic Director, Ammon Carver, and decided to try it out. I think it is softer and more wearable than the traditional ombre. Ask your stylist to customize your ombre to your lifestyle just like they should with any hair color service.
