If you would like to dye the Ombre , you have a variety of variants and colors available. Most often, the variant is chosen where the approach is dark and the tips are bright.

And if you do not have the time to brush up on the ombre on a regular basis, you do not have to worry about the visible approach, just like your completely dyed hair. Because this is finally wanted at Ombre hair and looks anything but ugly. Nevertheless, a visit to the barber is recommended to replace the washed-out color with a shiny and strong.
Let hair grow out for Ombre
It is also handy that you get Ombre hair if you just let the new color grow out. So, if you’re fed up with hair of a certain color, but you do not want to dye your hair anymore, or just have not decided to go with a new one, then wait and see how your hair naturally creates the ombre look.
Make Ombre yourself
If you already have some experience with dyeing hair, you can also try to create the ombre look yourself. You are welcome to get someone to help. We also have instructions on how to color ombre hair to be as successful as possible and to get a nice look. Here you decide for yourself whether you want to make a brown-blonde ombre or merge two nuances of a brown tone into each other.
Dye hair with balayage technique
For dyeing hair in the ombre style usually the so-called balayage technique is used. Here, the strands are not wrapped something like the Strähnchenfärben in foil. Instead, each strand is placed in the hand of Ombre hair and brushed with the other, as when stroking wood. The amount of colorant is chosen according to how much you want to lighten.
Idea for Blond Ombre
If you do not want to make a big deal, you can also use different shades of a hair color instead of turning from brown to blonde. Here’s an example of Ombre Blond. The approach is dyed dark blond and then gradually turns into a pale blonde. This is no less attractive than the variants for Ombre hair with larger contrasts.
Brown hair with ombre
In the same way, you can also create an ombre in brown. It’s best to start with an approach in a very dark shade of brown, then turn it into a lighter shade of brown. If you have naturally dark brown hair, this task is even easier. Because then you only have to dye the tips for the ombre hair.
Black hair for Ombre with brown and blond
Ombre hair looks especially chic when three colors are used. In this example, a medium brown tone was chosen as the transition between the very dark neck and the light blond tips. As you can see, a wide variety of colors are possible. For this purpose, you are also welcome to consult a hairdresser.
Blonde hair with ombre
We have already mentioned that the transition from dark to light is the most common option. But at least as attractive is the reverse variant, the so-called reverse Ombre. These Ombre hairs are great for naturally blonde ladies. If you also want to dye blond hair in Ombre, choose this variant and let the hair gradually turn into a dark brown shade.
Ombre hair in brown
No matter if you choose the ombre for short hair or for a long time. The unique effect will always work well. Tiered hair can also be designed in the ombre look by darkening the upper layer and parts of the covering hair darker and the lower hairs and layers lighter. This is also a simple way to dye your own Ombre hair. Just divide the hair properly.
Ombre hair with red
Also very popular is the combination for ombre hair with red. Here, the red color can be combined with a dark brown tone, as well as with blond. This color choice is also suitable for short and long hair and is a special eye-catcher, which will appeal especially to those ladies who would like to try something extravagant.
Alternative ombre look
The greater the color difference between the lightest and darkest areas, the harder it can be to make a smooth transition for the ombre hair. Beginners can decide then again for the just-mentioned technique in which the top and bottom hairs are dyed separately. The example above shows such a variant with a brown tone for the neck and red tone for the tips.
The starting color is either a very dark shade of brown or even better black. For Ombre hair, the best choice for black is a red tone with a cooler undertone that goes towards purple or purple. Cherry red, claret, Burghunder and similar are, for example, very well suited and create a perfect interplay of Kointrastfarben.
A brown color for the approach is best combined with a warm red color. It is suitable copper and similar nuances. But these are only approximate guidelines. Of course, you can also combine black or dark brown with reds other than those mentioned. This depends entirely on your taste and the effect that you want to achieve with Ombre hair.
Ombre for straight hair
Ombre is suitable for both curly and straight hair. For smooth hair, special attention must be paid to a smooth transition, as the smooth hair structure would immediately make an abrupt transition noticeable. The example above shows beautiful Ombre hair in black and cherry red, which is also suitable for shorter hair.
Ombre hair in black and maroon
The wine red goes more towards violet. This nuance is particularly well suited for a black approach. If you choose the right shade of red, you should consult first, because especially the red color is not available to every type. For the ombre hair also like to use a black color with a red undertone, which is visible only in the light and thus is not so intrusive.
Red hair in ombre look
Fire-red hair is undoubtedly an eye-catcher. Copper as a red shade is very popular and not without reason. The color has a unique look, which is perfect for Ombre hair. Combine copper with blond best. These two shades really fit together and complement each other wonderfully.
Red and blond for ombre hair
For the Ombre, use hair for a darker approach and blond for the tips. The blond can also be provided with a reddish if you do not want to have too much contrast. The blond tone, however, should come from cases in the warmer palette. Platinum blonde or ash blonde, for example, do not match copper and should therefore be avoided.
Ombre in red and blond
You can also combine blond with other warm reds as it was done here. The blonde color sometimes extends to over half the hair length and creates an irregular, yet attractive transition from one color to another. If you want Ombre hair, you should think about where you would like your transition.
Does Ombre harm the hair?
A common question is whether Ombre is harmful to the hair. For this, one has to say that in principle any kind of dyeing can damage the hair, especially when it comes to bleaching. But are Ombre’s hair broken, especially from this type of hair coloring? Hardly likely! If your hair is healthy and appropriate after dyeing, you do not have to worry. If your hair is already damaged, you should first take care to put it back in order before choosing Ombre hair.
Ombre hair in gray
Gray hair is another hair trend that is finding more and more women. This not only means the natural discoloration of women in old age. Even young women are increasingly resorting to this look and dye their hair deliberately gray. This is certainly not for everyone, but still a stylish eye-catcher for long and short hair.
Color ideas for ladies
And this color trend you can also wonderfully combine with the trend of our current topic. Because ombre hair in gray are incredibly attractive and can be designed differently. One variation is to let the hair towards the tips get lighter and lighter with a dark brown or dark blond hairstyle.
Gray hair in ombre look
This is, for example, the case in this example. The basic color is a dark blond, which almost turns into brunette, the tips are gray with a slight blue cast. Another option is to use only gray for ombre hair. Start with a dark gray and let it get lighter and lighter towards the bottom.
If a lot of gray is not for you, then you can also consider this variation, where only the tips are dyed. The transition between gray and dark brown is made by a small area in blond and is also a bit more abrupt than the previous ideas and variants for ombre hair. This is because a smaller area has been brightened.
Extravagant ideas for Ombre hair
If you want to be particularly brave, you can also choose a colorful color for the Ombre look. The most popular variants for ombre hair include pink or purple and especially pastel shades. Pastel shades are a perfect match for blonde hair and are interesting as well as subtle color touches that are not too colorful in everyday life.
A variant is again, only to make the approach pink and make the tips lighter. This variant for Ombre hair is a bit more flashy. In the example, a Rosaton was chosen, which goes slightly towards red and is therefore darker than the classic Rosaton. This is a great alternative for those of you who want to try red, but do not dare to go for the true red.
More subtle is again the variant for ombre hair, in which a blond approach turns into a pastel pink. The amount of pink you use here is up to you. Above all, short hairstyles or shoulder-length hair make this idea upbeat and all-round, but at the same time stylish and elegant, making it suitable for almost any age group.
Shoulder-length hair with ombre in pink
Here you see the pink ombre for shoulder-length hair, where the ombre is also suitable for short hair. The starting color is dark blond, which has been combined with a pinkish and striking rosaton. The colorful color for the Ombre hair starts already high above the head, so that the Pinkton predominates in this hairstyle.
Idea for long hair
A similar color combination can be seen in this example for Ombre hair, which this time was used in long hair. Aschblond and Dunkelblond fit wonderfully pink or pink, which is why they are a good starting color. The Ombre starts with a few strands that reach to the beginning, while the color becomes lusher downwards.
Brown and pink
Even with a brown hair color, a pastel tone can be wonderfully combined. Proof of this is provided by this example of Ombre hair. For this purpose, an ombre is designed with blond first. In order for the hair to be able to absorb the pink hue, it must be lightened. This also creates effects from three hair colors, because the blond remains visible in the middle.
Purple and dark brown or black
Again, see some ideas for the combination of black or dark brown with purple or pink. Especially long hairs are very impressive with this look and tolerate more color. If you have short hair, the color can be used more sparingly. But that’s just a matter of taste and also depends on how striking you want to make the ombre hair.
Colorful hair in ombre
You can also make Ombre hair colorful with several colors. This is especially easy to achieve for ladies with blond hair. There’s a great way to try out the effect first by using hair crumbs that can be easily washed out again. If you are satisfied with the result, you can also opt for permanent ombre hair.
Blue hair in the ombre look
Just as pretty as pink also looks a blue hue. Pastel blue is chosen more frequently than a strong and dark tone because it is more subtle. This is especially true when the blue color is to be combined with a light blond tone. But also Ombre hair in dark brown and blue look very attractive, as this example proves.
Idea in three colors
These blond hairs were again decorated with a dark blue, the transition was created by using a bright pastel blue. Since blond and blue are very different tones, this is a good solution for ombre hair if you want a smooth transition. You can also choose a gray tone instead of blond.
Uniformly merging colors
In the same way, the blue color was applied here as well. Instead of a yellowish blond tone here also platinum blonde was used, which is a cool shade and thus better fits the blue. The Ombre hairs begin with dark blue at the bottom, then turn into a bright shade of blue and finally into a blue-green, before you join the platinum blonde.
Blue Ombre Hair Idea
Dark brown hair can be combined with a gray tone and then with a dark or light blue shade. How exactly you design your ombre hair, you have to finally design your own. Our ideas are merely inspirations and should give you a brief overview of the possibilities.
Green ombre hair
The green colors are the same as the blue ones. In the dark hair she is not as strong as, for example, in blond hair, which is advantageous if you want to make your original, but still not too striking. The example above for ombre hair combines black for the neck and dark green for the tops.
