Actress wanna-be Camila Alves is better known as Matthew McConaughey’s girlfriend and mother to their child, but WE know her as an example of ombré haircolor done well. Technically this popular hue describes a dark hue that fades into highlights in the middle of ends of hair, and that fits Camila to a T. Her two hues are each distinct yet perfectly blended from black to golden brown. Expertly applied like this, ombré resembles colored hair growing out naturally. On the other hand we have Jessica Biel, usually included in features about the two-tone trend. Even though she’s considered a poster child for ombré, Jess barely fits the definition (in our opinion). On one side, the color varies from dark to light, but on the other the mane has only a few blond streaks. Perhaps this less-is-more approach makes Jess a popular leader in this field. It’s certainly more practical for real women.
Both of these dos are worlds’ better than a bad ombré (think Drew Barrymore). With that in mind, make sure you find a colorist who has mastered the technique. While you’re at it, search out other clients who’ve had it done, and get their opinion. The rest is up to you!
