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.
#27: Long, Straight Hair with Blue Ombre
What we like about this style is how natural the blue streaks look, when blended into the dark brown hair. The model opted for subtle highlights of blue nearly all the way up to the top to connect seamlessly with the radically bleached and dyed tips. Since bleaching takes its toll on the health of one’s hair, this is a less damaging approach to the blue ombre look.
