Hi Lovelies!

Looks like the “Ombre” hair trend is still going strong – and bound to be the look of the summer!

If you haven’t heard of it, you’ve definitely seen it. Perhaps you’ve seen photos of Hollywood A-listers who look like they’re behind on their coloring – or they’re just growing out their roots in the public eye.

Well, that’s no mistake. Celebs are actually shelling out top dollar to get this look.  It’s called the “Ombre” and it’s everywhere! Basically the Ombre is long dark roots.

The Ombre can be subtle or extreme.  These celebs chose a little more obvious Ombre – giving it an edgier look.

Time to get this look:

Well, this is definitely the easiest look to get – you can just stop coloring your hair.  Or you can go to your stylist (or local drug store) and darken your roots. If you’re hair is already dark, just some random highlights on the lower strands should do the trick.

I‘ve actually found a really great way to get the look at home – without the commitment!

Good ‘ol Roux Fanci-full – found at just about every drugstore and beauty supply is perfect! It’s totally TEMPORARY and rinses out when you wash. LOVE it! This way, you don’t have to wait for your roots to grow and you can go back and forth between the “ombre” and your usual look.

Fanci-full by Roux. – Comes in many different shades (the bottle may look different, depending on where you buy it).

Roux Fanci-full is super easy! You just take the bottle and squeeze onto roots while damp – or even dry. If you’re brunette, you’ll want to use the darkest color.  If you’re blonde, go for a few shades darker than what you currently have.

It’s a rinse so it spreads really easy as well. I just part my hair in the center and apply to roots, letting it run down my hair to create a more natural effect. After that i even add my own “lowlights” by applying to random pieces. Give it a try! If you don’t like it – just wash your hair!
