If you don’t love Ombre as much as we do (yet!), after reading this article, you just might be convinced. Here are our top 5 reasons to try the Ombre hair trend, especially for the warmer months:

1. Ombre Hair Is Fun & Stylish

Solid hair shades are great and all, but sometimes, it can get a little boring… don’t we all have our moments when we want to change things up?! Well getting Ombre or balayage hair is one of the most subtle ways to do that, while still seeing the difference. We say two is more fun than one. You can either go with a very subtle transition between the shades – like a darker brown to a lighter brown in our clip-in Ombre Chestnut Luxy Hair extensions:

or a more drastic Ombre look – like a dark brown to a blonde in our Ombre Blonde Luxy Hair clip-in extensions:

or even contrast two very different bright shades of your choice (like black with red, or blonde with purple, blue – whatever you like). Besides, Ombre is very trendy and gives more dimension to your hair.

2. Ombre Hairstyles Look Better

If the two selected shades complement each other well, the Ombre effect will give more life and dimension to your hair. Especially when creating hairstyles, the Ombre portion will make the details stand out a lot more and make the hairstyle so much prettier. Even simple braids look so great with the colour transition. Just take a look at the photos below:

3. Ombre Hair Is Low Maintenance

Firstly, Ombre is a very easy way to grow out your roots. Or, if your hair is dark and you’ve been wanting to go lighter, a big drawback can be – yes, you guessed it – the dark roots that constantly grow out!

Instead of colouring all of your hair and having to maintain your roots by constant touch-ups, the beauty of Ombre is that you don’t have to worry about your roots AT ALL. Let’em grow out all you want, and your hair will still look fantastic.

4. Easy to Transition From

Have you ever wanted a change, but you were uncertain if it would suit you? Or dying all your hair seemed like too much of a commitment? We feel you girl. Why Ombre is great in this regard, is because it’s literally just half the hair that you would be trying it out on, which is a baby step. And, to look on the bright side, if you’re no longer feeling it, you can always slowly trim it off as your hair grows out.

5. Get Ombre Hair Without Damage

Best part, is that there is a way to get the Ombre look without having to colour your hair – clip-in Luxy Hair Extensions! Easily achieve the Ombre look in under 5 minutes by clipping your Luxies in 🙂 Choose between the Ombre Chestnut shade for a more subtle blend:
