First, there is a huge selection of color combinations (from a cascade of natural shades to bold contrast), suitable for any color type. Secondly, ease of care - no special styling products and additional cosmetic procedures. We have selected 30 of the most interesting ombre design options for you.
1. Coffee with caramel
Even if you do not manage to take a vacation in the near future and soak up the rays of the southern sun on the sandy shore, you can meet spring in the form of the “queen of the beach” right now!

Who is suitable for: for pale and fair skin, in perfect harmony with platinum blonde.

What type of hair: for curly (natural or curly) hair of high to medium density.
Advice: immediately before lightening the ends of the hair, we advise you to trim them to avoid dryness and damage. Give your hair regular nourishing care with masks and hair oils.
The use of the ombre technique with a reverse transition - from a rich blonde to a warm brown-haired woman - will help to add additional charm to your look.
