'Ombre' comes from the french word meaning shaded or shading. Ombre hair color is generally darker at the roots through the mid-shaft and then gradually gets lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends. It is usually achieved using a balayage technique and is ideal for clients looking for a low-maintenance style. Ombre hair color is usually a two-step process with the base color being done first and then the highlights added to clean, dry hair.
