Sombre: The Next Generation of Ombre
The Sombre Look is now replacing the Ombre look as far as haircoloring trends are concerned. Sombre is a "softer" ombre look rather than the bold contrast in the original ombre technique.
The Sombre look can be achieved by
1) Keeping your darker and lighter colors within two or three levels of the same color family.
2) Blend some of the lighter color into the darker color
3) Remembering to go for a soft color change in lieu of anything dramatic.
So now, you can ask for sombre for a softer ombre color update or ombre for the bolder look. I have written other articles on this blog introducing the ombre look.
