Our Stamford ombre hair colorists are experts in the field and are happy to say that the ombre highlights trend is actually here to stay. That’s also great news if you color your hair regularly, since the upkeep with ombre hair coloring is less frequent than traditional highlights. This is not only time effective but cost effective as well. Don’t expect to see drastic two-toned shades, however, because instead, our clients are opting for color that looks more natural and gradually changes tone.
Our Stamford ombre hair colorists at Odyssey Hair Designs recommend only going about three to four shades lighter at the ends of your hair. Also recommended is adding a few light streaks of hand-painted highlights (balayage) from your roots to the ends. This effect will make your hair look more sun-kissed and keep the color flowing through your strands. Our ombre specialists suggest starting very natural at your roots and getting heavier towards the bottom.
With ombre hair coloring, maintenance is minimal, but it does still exists. Since you don’t get roots it only needs to be touched up a couple times a year. Our Stamford ombre hair colorist does recommend switching up your hair care, however, to keep your strands looking healthy and the color vibrant. Suggested is a much more nourishing shampoo and good conditioner afterwards since you are lightening your hair. We also tell all our clients who want ombre hair coloring not to be afraid of the bleach. As long as there’s an experienced person applying the bleach to your hair, and paying attention as they’re doing it, your hair will not be damaged. Since ombre hair color is a newer technique, we want to assure you that our ombre hair coloring experts are very experienced, have the creative eye needed for ombre hair coloring, and are happy to look at any pictures of the special look you want to achieve. The health of your hair is a main concern of ours in addition to the look, and we do our best to keep your hair in great condition as we proceed with your ombre hair coloring.
