Ombré Inspiration


Ever since ombré became a huge trend in the beauty world, I've been growing out my light brown hair instead of continuing my blonde highlight routine. This seemed like the perfect excuse to see my natural color in a gradual way. To me, ombré is a beautiful reason to experiment and still achieve a natural look.

I've been growing out my hair for 9 months, so I feel like I'm finally achieving the overall look! For a gradient effect, I want to lighten the ends and bring some brunette lowlights towards the middle at a salon. Below are some of the most gorgeous ombré looks that I've found on Pinterest for inspiration.
