And it all started! There is hardly to find any woman who did not dye her hair or did not want to. Moreover, there is such a miracle of hairdresser’s invention as highlighting. Hair with such type of coloring looks much more voluminous, the hairstyle seems lush, and the complexion from this is more fresh and expressive.

How to refresh your image, add mystery, drive fans crazy and make them lose yourself in these endless tints of color?

Ombre color on hair extensions


   Ombre as a staining technique, first appeared in California in 2013. As soon as fashionable technology was noticed by Hollywood stars, it moved to the masses, quickly taking the leading position there. The essence of this coloring is to create the so-called shadow (the transition from bright tips to dark roots). This transition can have both clear boundaries and be smooth. Ombre creates the effect of regrown hair roots or hair that has burned out in the sun. Is not it wonderful!

Ombre Types

Ombre types

Classic. It is characterized by natural color in the root zone and clarified tips. The difference between shades is 1-2 tones, and the transition border is soft. 

With a strip. The hair is divided into three horizontal zones, two of which are painted in one color, and the strip between them - in contra. 

Outgrown bronding. On the head of hair put several shades of paint, close to your natural color. The root zone remains untreated or slightly obscured. Due to this, a smooth transition of colors is achieved - a soft degrade.

Reverse. If the original hair color is dark, the hair on the roots is lightened, and the tips are left intact. If the natural shade is light, everything happens the other way round: the roots darken, and the ends remain light. 

Monochrome. Two contrasting shades are used - light and dark. Border color transition noticeable. 

Bright. Extravagant colors are used as accent shades - blue, green, purple, garnet, pink.Partial. Only some strands are painted. It allows you to emphasize layered haircut. 

Focused. Suitable for light blonde girls and blondes. A dye is applied to the hair, a few shades lighter than the original color. Glinting Ombre gives hair a light glow, so it is called a highlight. 

Flames. Used primarily for dark hair. Gamma paints - from copper-red to red. The selection of strands for dyeing is chaotic.
