This sea­son, the hottest trend seen in­ter­na­tion­ally on the cat­walks is the Om­bre (mean­ing ‘shaded hair colour’ in French). It has a beau­ti­ful gra­da­tion of colour go­ing from darker roots to medium-toned mid-lengths, fur­ther blend­ing to lighter ends. The tran­si­tion is seam­less, and it gives a very beau­ti­ful, sen­su­ous­look­ing colour. The Om­bre tech­nique can be used to en­hance longer lengths (pre­ferred by In­di­ans). In­dian hair is mostly dark (bases 3, 4 and 5), so the colours can be shaded to a lovely mid (6 and 7), fur­ther light­en­ing to a soft light tone (8 and 9). The tones can range from deep auburn to soft strawberry, deep caramel to light gold, and cof­fee to lighter khaki. Om­bre is ‘com­mit­ment free’ — you need not re­touch like con­ven­tional high­lights. It also ben­e­fits clients with a lot of greys as the roots are nat­u­rally dark; the touch-up for­mula can be deep and lim­ited to the re-growth only.
