Can Redheads Pull Off The 'Ombre' Look?

The “ombre” look has become the hottest summer hair trend and is when a darker root blends into a lightened color at the end of the hair strands. Ombre is a French word for graduation and refers to the dark-to-light fade of color that is used in the technique. It is a beachier, more natural looking version of the dyed ‘root-to-end’ trend we have seen in the past.

Many redheads wonder if they can pull off the look and Rona O’Connor, a celebrity hair stylist, who has worked on Hollywood’s most famous ‘gingers’ said, “Yes, redheads can definitely pull off the ombre look. I would see it as a sun-flicked ‘ombre’ so it’s more of a sun-kissed effect and a little more natural. Unless you’re feeling a little more fashion forward and edgy, a more solid strawberry ombre could be fun for summer.”

    I have strawberry blonde red hair… I want to ombre my hair with a wild color at the bottom… what color would look good though? It seems like most every color will clash with the strawberry blonde other than just bleach.

      You could do a shade of tael or aqua! My hair is a darker red now, but it was strawberry blonde when I was a kid. My mum has always loved when I wear teal blouses or headbands because it goes so nicely with my red hair (:

      Honestly I think any colour would look great. I have darker red hair and around winter time I ombred my hair with purple, pink and blue. It looked great and I always got compliments on it. I also loved how fun it was to have the different colours in my hair, braiding and curling my hair became that much funner. I do think the tael would look very good as well but maybe you could go for a light pink or a baby blue

      My hair is about that color too. Since hair can be lots of colors i may not have the one for you. I recommend doing to ombre colors. The top one should be lightish brow and the second one should be blondish white
