Ombre: From Hair to Fashion

Rachel Bilson, Khloe Kardashian, Lauren Conrad. What do these three ladies have in common besides being all over Hollywood’s radar? They’ve been the trendsetters for the new ombre hairstyle. Ombre, a French term, means the graduation of color from dark to light. This style is usually monochromatic and has gained popularity through celebrity confirmations. Darkened roots faded into lighter ends define this hair-coloring style. Trying this look with medium to longer length, layered hair looks first-class.

The ombre trend has not only become fashionable on hair, but clothing and nails as well. Alberta Ferretti was an early innovator that included this style in the 2007 Fall collection, according to an article on Fabsugar. Many other designers have also included this technique since it has popularized recently.

Try this simple ombre do-it-yourself skirt from Harper’s Bazaar or Martha Stewart’s ombre summer scarf and fit right in to this season’s trend.
