3 Things to consider before trying Ombre

Celebrity-Ombre-Hair-Color-IdeasIntroducing Ombre hair! The French-termed hair trend features darker, more natural hues at the roots with graduated colour fading to the ends. It’s been spotted on plenty of A-list celebrities and I am sure you have seen it out and about, worn well and well… not so well! It’s a trend that doesn’t require a busy woman of the world to run to the salon every 6-8 weeks for a touch-up!

This style of coloring is great for the woman who is looking for something low maintainance, effective and most importantly different from the block colours and foils of the last 10 years. Word of warning but Ombre colouring is  a bigger service that requires a lot of hands on time for your hairdresser and of course the expense of that. Keep these points in mind to decide whether Ombre is for you and of course to try to save your self some dollars.

1. Bring a picture of a Colour and style you desire. It seems simple right but so many clients still come to their appointments in our hairdressing salons with grand plans for a massive change but with no actual idea of what colour they want. Bringing in a picture will give us picture of what you want done so we can quote you for exactly what will be required. There are many different results we can achieve that all fall under the Ombre banner varying from $100 up to $300. A good rule of thumb is to look at what looks good on celebrities with similar skin tone and style to you as well to ensure the look is right.

2. Know your budget, simple right? If you have a budget make sure to let us know as well in your consultation, different results and ombre styles have a different amount of work and time attached to them. If we know your budget we can tailor a solution for you within that if possible or avoid doing a service that is not exactly what you are looking for. As a side note our stylists will always quote you on a price prior to starting the service to avoid any nasty suprises.

3. Be honest about your colour history. If you have coloured or bleached your hair and not told us, you not only risk a chemical reaction,  you may not be able to achieve the “Ombre Hair” effect successfully without some color correction. This is probably the most important tip of the article, We are great hairdressers but we can’t work with damaged hair or an unsure colour history. If your hair is a patchwork of different shades we need to eliminate these shades using colour correction techniques to get a blank canvas to work with, which can be done but will take time (unless you want an uneven hue through your hair that is). Cureplex can allow us to achieve the result in the same day but comes as an added expense.

If you feel this style is something you would like to achieve please come in a visit our hairdressers at our Toombul, Taigum and Strathpine salons for an obligation free consultation and quote.
