 Ombré Dark Hair Color What to watch out for:
* Over bleaching the ends if you're already blond
* Dying roots darker, which will give a dramatic look now, but could backfire and appear more fake, especially when your medium to light roots grow in.

All in all, this new trend is kind of a “love it or hate it” situation. The good news is, if you've got lots of highlights, you can take baby steps into it by getting fewer and fewer highlights on each visit, and you can always go back for more if you decide it's not for you. And for brunettes, it's pretty easy to color back over the highlights to a darker look again, with no additional damage.

Who it's best on Victoria’s Secret models! Oh and anyone else with dark to medium hair, straight or wavy, to the shoulder blades or below. If you're a bright or double-process blond and used to seeing light/golden tones, coloring the top darker will be a huge change make sure you're ready for it because taking it back to blond will not be an easy/gentle (or cheap) task.
What to ask for: a few highlights around the face, then mainly focused on the ends. You basically want a partial highlight, upside down; instead of the top and front being lightest, with a few strands behind the ear for blending, you want moderate highlighting through the back and ends, with just a few at the front to make it pop.
