Beautiful Ombré Hair Color Ideas

3 min readApr 14, 2022


The ombré hair trend shows no signs of slowing down — and there are very few rules involved. The term “ombré means from dark to light,” says Joel Warren owner of The Salon Project, and “the look is darker roots with lighter ends of the hair.” Since there’s minimal root regrowth, it’s one of the easiest styles to maintain.

Mostly Blonde Ombré

Get the party started more quickly by keeping just the first few inches of your roots dark, then heading into a honey blonde shade, like Margot Robbie.

Piecey Platinum Ombré

Take a page out of Kristen Stewart’s book and add a shock of platinum to brown roots. This creates a messy, punk-rock effect.

Caramel Ombré

Yes, even the former first lady herself has dabbled in ombré locks! Michelle Obama’s ombré fades to a copper, then to a honey-toned dark blonde at the tips.

Gentle Shades of Brown

Soft ombré, or “sombré,” shades makes your hair look more dynamic, yet it’s still subtle enough that the maintenance is minimal. Hillary Swank has mastered the ombré.

Slow Fade

Ask your stylist to make your ombré super transitional, like Natalie Morales. This hair goes from deep brown to honey hues seamlessly, with tons of depth in between.

Rose Ribbons

Want to mix up your color, but don’t want to commit to a full vivid? Try asking your stylist to paint soft rose streaks into your ends, like Debby Ryan.

Glossy Waves

Growing out a long bob? Add some lighter shades to the bottom to keep your cut from looking “blah” like Kelly Price did here.

Golden Streaks

For the ultimate sun-kissed waves, throw in honey-gold highlights, beginning around your temples. Tousle your hair like Dakota Johnson for beachy vibes

Buttery Blonde Ombré

Add some dimension to your blonde by fading your hair from deep amber to a bright blonde. Add a few face-framing babylights like Hillary Duff to make it look even more natural.

Barely- There Ombré

This ombré look is so subtle, that you may not even notice it, but it adds flair and warmth to Padma Lakshmi’s whole look.
