BEAUTY BAR: Pretty on Fleek

Ombré is a never dying trend. As many of you already know, the ombré hair trend has been around for quite some time and is going to continue to be a hot trend as the color techniques are evolving. For those of you who don’t know what ombré is, it’s basically a dark color at the top gradually getting lighter on the bottom. Many celebrities who have been famously known for rocking the trend are Vanessa Hudgens, Lauren Conrad, Miley Cyrus, Khloe Kardashian and, of course, Kylie Jenner.

Gradience is key when it comes to the ombré coloring technique. Other ombré techniques that are trending right now are the balayage, sombré and dip dye. Balayage is a french word meaning “to sweep” or “to paint,” and it is basically a highlight technique resulting in giving that sun-kissed natural look. The sombré is a change that is so small, but makes a big difference. The technique is a lot like the ombré but gives a subtle gradation from the roots to the ends. A sombré hairstyle looks slightly lighter and brighter at the ends. The dip dye hair trend creates a bold contrast with dark roots and light roots, with no in-between color. You can either get the ombré done at a salon near you or simply do it yourself at home!

This Fashionista is showing off her dip dye ombré hairstyle with a beautiful braid with this casual fit and flare navy blue dress. Her belt, sandals and simple jewelry complement her ensemble. I love this hairstyle and look because the ombré makes her outfit stand out and gives this Fashionista a bold and sexy look.
