The ombre hair trend seems to be the longest running hair situation… that we’ve all fell in love with. It’s clearly moved on from just being a celebrity must-have trend–there’s even at-home coloring kits available, just in case you missed that memo.
But we’re not so sure that’s a great idea. With the uncertainty hair loss and hair breakage brings, I’d rather trust the guidance of a top celebrity hairstylist.
Insert Cesar Ramirez, the scissors behind Ciara’s new hairstyle. We recently chatting and he dished on what not to do when going ombre, the prep work involved, and how to maintain those fresh color transitions. Check out his must-read tips on the ombre hair trend.
Make sure you go to a highly trained colorist for this process. Just because someone does color, doesn’t mean they’ve been trained to execute the latest trends or that they can do them well. The ombre look is more about multidimensional beautiful color, not just dark roots and light ends.
How do you get the right coloring transition?
The application is everything. The best way to achieve this is with a balayage technique, or individually freehand painted pieces. With this technique, you achieve a seamless color transition.
