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.
#22: Blue Braid Crown
You can still do a blue ombre in short hair as shown in this picture. By pairing a dark blue with a unique mint green, you can really pack a punch without needing a lot of hair. Blending the two hues together in a braid crown achieves a beautiful highlight effect.
