BEAUTY BAR: Ombré Every Day

I’ve always envied brunette girls for their ability to try out the ombré hair trend. Ombré hair color is darker from the roots to the mid-shaft, and then gets lighter from there to the ends. This look can be spotted all over the heads of celebrities and fashion bloggers. The gradual fade from roots to tips naturally gives off a carefree, boho sort of vibe that’s reminiscent of summer; it’s perfect for breezy dresses and beachy braids. On the other hand, the trend has been integrated into the realm of more glamorous styles. This Fashionista styled her long, ombré locks in loose curls that are a little more structured than natural waves. The fading color maintains its cool look, but the curls look very put together.

The style is the perfect topping to her outfit. It’s no secret that utility jackets have been a strong trend lately. I like the one in this Fashionista’s outfit because of its cropped cut, which makes it more fitting of summer and allows for her bright, flowy tank top to be shown off. She keeps the urban glam style of her look going with simple black bottoms and extremely cool black sandals with thick, gold chain details. The hairstyle is another hip detail that’s perfect for the stylish ensemble. Throwing on a pair of oversized sunglasses, she’s ready for a walk across campus in the sun.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Of course, the ombré look can be done by going to a professional hair stylist, but if you’re more into DIY projects, there are also kits for purchase that allow you to do it on your own at home. Keep your color on point with a color vibrancy treatment. To really take the look to the next level, add some loose curls with a curling wand.
