Sombre – soft ombré

Sombre is a softer version of ombre. It is very subtle and fashionable look, loved by many celebrities. Sombre goes well with all variations of hair textures. 

A great look to blend out old highlights or change up your look. Great for woman who like lo maintenance hair, but still want to keep up with trends. Can vary in colours and tones from blonde to caramel to dark browns, warmer and cooler tones to become more personalised for each client and there lifestyle.! 

Also a great look as it’s so easy to change up the color on the mid way mark, toning is key to this look and as toners fade you will have a few different stages to the color,which I personally love! Depending on debts and warmth you can be more copper one week and more caramel the next and as for brighter tones more Icy one week  and more golden the next 

So here’s one we did at rockgorgeous 

So you can see the color is more blended and even with multi tones to add dimention.! 

Most important was a detaild consultation, of what the client wanted to achieve with her new style, we looked though images and setteled on one.! Imagery is a great way to distuingush exactly what the client is looking to achieve 

Technique : I chose a base color to suite her  complection using nothing permentant as she is open to change in the future.! I applied base color first and then using free hand painting technique smudging each section with a fine weave using foil to separate each section for a cleaner lift.! 

Once color was applied I let sit for 30 mins with no heat.! 

After development time the color was rinced using oribe moisture and control shampoo and conditioner to keep hair moisturised after Color 

And now its glaze time the most important step.! I glazed at the section so I could see exactly where we wer at and where we wanted to go.! 

Once I knew this I the applied my glaze using redkin shades 7nb from roots to ends leaving sit for 10 mins in total.! And repeat process at sink shampooing and condition.! 

Cut and blow was the last process we did a one length baseline to maintain a strong perimeter and soften through with some textures layering to give movement.! Applying some unite beach day for the blowdry I used x2 medium sized brushes using twisting technique and finished using unite argon oil for shine
