How To Know if Ombre Hair is Right for You?

EH Hair - ombre hair model 01

A popular style in recent years, ombre hair colour is typically darker at the roots before gradually lightening from the mid-lengths to the ends. As well as creating a natural fade from dark to light, the ombre style can add depth and dimension to the hair, especially when paired with high quality hair extensions. The hair trend has been worn by many celebrities and influencers, as it is a natural-looking style that can be tailored to many hair types and lengths, and personal features such as skin tone. If you decide that you want to try the ombre style for yourself, EH Hair can give you a glamorous new look, adding volume and length to your hair with premium quality hair extensions.


Want to know if you should choose ombre hair for your new look? Read on to find out more about the effortlessly gorgeous ombre style.


You want a hairstyle that shows more dimension

If you want a style that gives more life and dimension to your hair, ombre hair is the right style choice for you. This hair colour style compliments the darker hair by allowing the lighter portion to stand out in contrast. Even a simple braid can look more detailed as the colour transition is more obvious. Ombre for darker hair can give you the appearance of naturally sun-kissed locks or a more dramatic gradient depending on your personal style and preferences. The style will significantly lighten up the natural colour of your hair and create an eye-catching effect that illuminates all the blended tones, especially when your hair is exposed to light.

You prefer a low-maintenance hairstyle

Unlike colour styles that cover the entire head of hair, ombre hair is much lower maintenance, as styles that require a full head of colour need more routine salon visits to keep the style at its best. With the ombre hair style, the darker colour at the roots can grow out to even around the mid-length of the hair before the style is lost and does not create a solid colour line at the roots. Not only does ombre hair not require constant touch-ups to disguise the signs of hair growth, thanks to the natural-looking colouring technique, it can look even better as the colour grows out!


You Want to Protect Your Scalp

Since bleach or colour is typically not needed on the roots of your hair to create the ombre style, you can be free from the concern of your scalp becoming sensitive to the chemicals, particularly with frequent touch-ups. Particularly, those who have bleached hair may find that they can have issues with scalp sensitivity as they often need to lighten regrowth that becomes obvious at the roots. The ombre style can still look beautiful and fresh even when regrowth has been untouched for months, as the natural gradient from dark to light will make the darker roots blend into the style perfectly. Even if you want to change your overall hair colour from brunette to blonde, using the ombre style can be a great choice instead of the traditional method of bleaching the hair from the roots.


You want to save money in the long run

A lower maintenance hair style means less frequent visits to the salon for touch-ups. In other words? Less costs! If you love to colour your hair but want to save money in the long run, an ombre style is the perfect choice for you. You won’t need weekly or monthly touch-up appointments to correct the regrowth, as regrowth won’t be obvious and will just blend into the ombre style. With ombre hair, you can wait up to four months before visiting your hairstylist, depending on your colour.


You Want a Style That is Compatible with Hair Extensions

So, you love the ombre hair look, but you want to add length and volume to your hair and you’re not sure if this is a trend that can be maintained with extensions. Luckily, not only can ombre hair can be achieved and maintained with extensions, it can even benefit from extensions as more volume can further enhance the look.

While the ombre style can be created on hair of any length and thickness, you may notice that many ombre hair lovers tend to have longer hair or have opted for hair extensions to create and emphasise the ombre look. At EH Hair, we use premium hair and colour to create a stunning ombre style, using tape, micro bead, weft or invisible tape extensions. If you are in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, or the Gold Coast, you can book an appointment at one of our salons to achieve fuller, healthy-looking hair with a natural style.

Alternatively, you can create the ombre look in your natural hair and purchase some ombre clip in extensions to wear whenever you want to add some volume to your hair. Take a look at our clip in extensions and give them a try!

You want a hair colour that will best suit your style and hair needs

Whether you have straight or curly hair, the ombre colour technique can beautifully compliment your personal style and be compatible with your hair needs. With the ombre hairstyle, you can look sophisticated and elegant, choosing from the wide range of colour combinations that can be used to create the look.


The ombre hair colour style is compatible with every shade of hair and there will always be an option that will best fit your natural hair colour and texture. If you want to achieve dramatic results, it is recommended to make your hair roots darker with the hair ends lighter. If you’re aiming for more natural results, you can keep your base hair colour while avoiding very light colour at the hair ends. This is because the lighter colour will need more bleach which can cause dry and damaged hair.


The ombre style can be customised to fit your personal hair goals and create your dream hair. Whether you prefer natural brunette, red or blonde tones, ombre will look good on you!


You Want a Subtle Change

If you’re just after a slight refresh to your hair and you’re not sure which style to choose, the ombre style can be gently created in your hair with a subtle gradient. The subtle ombre gradient will use a colour that is not too much lighter from the roots, creating a very natural look while still noticeably updating your hairstyle.


You Want a Dramatic Change

Of course, the ombre style can also dramatically transform your hair, creating a much bigger change to your overall look. With a more obvious gradient, such as natural brunette roots that fade to a light blonde tone, you can change your overall hair colour without needing to bleach your hair at the roots. Essentially, using the ombre style, you can go from brunette to blonde in a way that looks natural, is low maintenance, and adds depth to your hair.


You Want a Hair Colour That Suits Your Skin Tone

If you’re looking for a style that will naturally compliment your skin tone, ombre hair is a great option, as the blend of tones that are used can be carefully selected to best suit you.


If you have a darker skin tone, creating the ombre style using deep red or bronze tones will suit your natural hair colour and texture. Red hair colour will also look good on your dark skin because your hair can create a complimentary contrast with your skin tone. Blonde hair colour is also a good choice as it can brighten your overall appearance. If you have a medium skin tone, copper tones and rich browns will help you achieve a more natural and sophisticated look. As a general rule of thumb, choose colours that are two to three shades lighter than your original hair to achieve the best, most natural results. If you’re not sure which colours to choose, our stylists at one of our EH Hair salons can make some recommendations. You can also browse ombre hair styles online to try and get a better idea of the look that you would like to achieve – thanks to the growing popularity of the style, there are plenty of pictures to look through!
