Ombre is not an invention of the contemporary hipstress or of the manic pixie dream girl. However, versions of this delightful style have started cropping up in more daring colors of late. Blue ombre, with its indirect references to fantasy creatures like mermaids and fairies, is all the rage with the younger set these days. It’s nowhere near as difficult to pull off as it may seem: all you need is a good colorist/stylist and a shade of blue you actually like.
#18: Formal Ombre Look
Sometimes you will find the need to change your look for more formal events. Even though there is nothing you can do to really hide a bold color (and why would you want to!), you can soften it with pretty curls and a braided half-updo. If you are in a more conservative environment, keep the rest of your look neutral with a sweet frock or tailored separates.
