BEAUTY BAR: Fifty Shades of Ombré

Ombré hair trends came to dominate the fashion world a couple summers ago, but they’re not gone yet! Ombré hair still remains the go-to style transformation for fashion explorers, especially during the summertime. If you want change, but not something as dramatic as bleaching your entire hair, then try dying the tips of your hair a couple shades lighter than your original hair color to achieve a chic, flawless and trendy ombré hairstyle.

Personally, having lighter hair during the warmer months never fail to channel the inner beach girl in me. I think bronze, sun-kissed skin and crisp, ombré hair are a match made in heaven. Salt in the air and wind blowing through your lightened hair—California girls, we’re unforgettable, right?

Like this Fashionista, try styling your outfit around vibrant colors and feminine prints in order to complete your summer look. A floral romper is a trendy statement piece that can be both dressed up and down. Don’t be afraid to slip into your favorite pair of summer heels to give yourself a couple extra inches. Also, if you’re planning on attending a girl’s night out event or an evening bonfire, make sure to keep a lightweight cardigan handy.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? When I asked this Fashionista how she achieved her ombré hairstyle, she told me that she self-dyed her hair at home. To achieve her ombré style, you will need an ombré box dye. Ombré box dyes can be found at your local drugstore.
