IMPORTANT NOTES IF YOU PLAN TO GET AN OMBRE SOON

1. Let the contrast between the two shades look natural instead of drastic. Two shades lighter will generally look good on most people. The more subtle the change of shade is the more natural and sun-kissed your hair will look.
2. You are not restricted to just shades of light brown, if you are confident and feel you can experiment with some braver shades then by all means do so.
3. Take into consideration your own skin and hair color/tone while choosing the shade. Do not blindly copy any actresses or models. What looks good on them might not look good on you.
4. Go to a good salon instead of trying to apply the dye or bleach yourself. The professional will apply the color more evenly, it will look better and will damage your hair less.
5. Take a picture of the shade you wish to get instead of trying to explain the stylist by words.
6. Decide where you want the shade to end with your stylist, don’t go too high or too low.
7. Avoid too bright colors like orange which will stand out too much and will look extremely unnatural. Go subtle.
8. Don’t let the length of your hair restrict you from getting an ombre. Short, medium as well as long hair can rock an ombre equally well
9. Get creative and have fun styling your ombre hair. Getting an ombre does not mean you stop styling your hair completely. On the contrary, you can use the ombre transition to try different textures of curls and waves
