What is Ombre hair? Beyonce’s Dramatic Take
Beyonce’s take, unlike Rihanna’s soft natural tones, is dramatic and unusual. Although Ombre is supposed to start with dark roots gradually going lighter, Beyonce turns it upside down and layers her chocolate brown hair with intense blonde highlights. Her heavy bangs complete the look and create a stark color contrast that is dramatic and leaves a lasting impression.
What is Ombre hair? Monica’s Sophisticated Take
Monica’s take on ombre hair is this stunning yet sophisticated do. If you work in an environment that requires a particular dress code this would be a subtle version of the ombre that you can count on being discreet and pleasing to the eye without being provocative. Again, notice how much lighter the ends are. This is why it is so important when attempting ombre hair to make sure that your ends are in perfect condition. You don’t want them to look damaged and worn out due to the color difference.
