The ombré technique Paint on the colour using the brush through your mid-lengths and ends, and then gently backcomb the line where the colour meets your natural hair - that's the key to avoiding a harsh divide, and achieving a more natural graduated look.
What is the ombre color technique?
Ombré hair is a colour technique of seamless graduation from darker to lighter, whereas balayage is a highlighting technique. Another hair colouring technique is "sombre" ("somb-ray"), which is a softer and more subtle version of ombre hair, with a less visible transition between the roots and end colours.
How do you get the perfect ombre?
Applying your ombré colour
- Divide. Divide your hair into sections and begin your transformation!
- Backcomb. Backcomb the hair ever-so-slightly around the area where you want the ombré to begin in order to avoid creating a harsh line.
Does ombre go from light to dark?
Ombré /ˈɒmbreɪ/ (literally "shaded" in French) is the blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.
How do you do ombré paint for beginners?
Creating an ombré wall is actually quite simple (a slightly imperfect flow looks more interesting and organic, anyway). Start at the top with the deepest of three graduated shades, finish with the lightest, and blend for a stunning result.
How do you go from ombre to one color?
Mix it up: Using the bowl and brush, blend your darker shade with your lighter shade in a 4:1 ratio. Then do the same using four parts light and one part dark. This helps your color look more seamless once applied, and adds a little dimension.
