Your hair colour choices should always flatter your natural complexion. Dark brown combines well with every shade of blonde. For olive skin, hair colour transitions from blonde to fawn-brown, chestnut brown or shades of mahogany are exceptionally stylish. Red and coppery tones suit women with light complexions. Is your hair wheat blonde like the hair of ‘it girl’ Poppy Delevingne (see the first photo above)? If so, you may like to colour the ends of your hair reddish brown. The soft golden hue of Poppy’s hair softly transitions to shades of brown toward the hair ends. Colouring blonde hair requires a special touch and most importantly, adherence to the colouring directions. Otherwise, unintended hair colours may be the result.
Ombre hair colouring appears particularly natural if the hair close to the roots already shows a darker natural colour (see Kaley Cuoco’s ombre hair). The hair ends should be coloured in shades, which resemble the natural hair colour. You can further accentuate your ‘reverse ombre’ hair colour by using sea salt spray. Generously apply the sea salt spray to the still damp hair after shampooing. Beach waves will automatically appear as your hair dries. Ombre hair colouring works best in combination with accurate middle parting and soft waves. Use extra-gloss hair spray to enhance the colour effects. Ombre hair appears particularly trendy with steep colour transition. Don’t be timid if you like to try the ombre look from light to dark or from dark to light.
