Sombre Brunette

Sombre – sort of ombre, but not like what ombre used to be. The new and now is having your highlights ‘tipped out’ near the ends, and blended super fine at the roots.

Color by Patricia J., based at the Weekly Trim True Salon in Alberta, Canada.

Ombre Done Right

Doing ombre correctly is all about the blend. The gradual lightening should appear as if it grew out that way, and not that someone processed it. This ombre done right color is by Sarah Armstrong out of the Hair By Design Salon in Mount Eliza, Australia.

Hair Color Envy – Bronde

Here’s a hair color to envy, want, lust, you come up with the adjective. This color is not fully blonde and not fully brunette, falling in between the two shades and looking incredibly gorgeous. Color by Katherine Hyde at the Jonathan & George Salon in Beverly Hills. Aside from the usual ‘bronde’, what name would you use to call this shade?

Colorist Cherin Choi

Let’s face it – you know good work when you see it. Take a look at the shades being done by colorist Cherin Choi, who is based out of the Ramirez Tran Salon in Los Angeles. Also known via social media as ‘Mizz Choi’, this talented hair stylist has perfected the process of making your color treated hair appear as if you somehow naturally ‘grew’ this shade yourself, fading highlights out with more emphasis at the ends. Take a look for yourself from this before and after – and follow Mizz Choi on her Instagram account for more hair inspiration.
