Oh, My! It's Ombre Hair Time For Brunettes!
KimKardashian is the latest celebrity to play around with the light to dark ombre hair effect. She tweeted some much lighter locks to the Twitter masses over the weekend.
Okay, most of us thought the reality star was going to go blonde again, but she teased her fans, and as we can all see from the results, Kim K's ombre hair color involves a bit of chocolate delight. Her stylist, George Papanikolas, of Andy Lecompte Salon revealed his hair tips:
"I changed her from her traditional dark brown, to a more fashionable glossy chocolate brown,". George used a combo of Joico’s Base Breaker and Balayage highlights to create the glam gradient effect—-featuring "deep, dark chocolate to milk chocolate ends."
The ombre hair color style is perfect for brunette-haired gals who would like to lighten up without looking too washed out.
Celebrity colorist Kyle White, who has tended to the tresses of Mariah Carey, also has some smart ombre advice:
When trying out this look, choose your shades carefully. "You want to avoid a defined line between the shades—--to me, that’s actually two-toned, not ombre," he says. "The effect is supposed to be a gradation of color without a heavy line."
Other brunette celebrities looking lovely a la ombre include, Jessica Biel, Lea Michelle and Kate Beckinsale.
Now, including Kim K, would you guess that ALL 4 beauties are wearing hair extensions in these ombre color effects photos?!
Do you adore this look? Or are you hoping it passes away when autumn kicks in?
