Brown Ombre Hair
The brown Ombre hair style is a color effect in which the hair’s ends are lighter than the roots. To achieve this effect, it is essential to bleach the lower part of the hair.
If you want to avoid the resulting colour being copper or orange, it is also possible to dye the ends after bleaching them.
How To Achieve The Ombre Style?
Select the color:
- Initial of all, you should choose a color that combines well with your natural tone. The most frequent options are usually a lighter brown Ombre hair, a reddish or blonde tone.
- There are two types of Ombre, the traditional and vice versa. The classic Ombre has the ends lighter than the roots, and the reverse Ombre has the stops darker than the roots.
- Select a shade that is no extra than two shades lighter than what you currently have.
- The more subtle the color change, the extra natural the result will be.
- Whenever possible, look for dyes that are totally or practically natural to avoid damaging your hair.
Decide where you want the Ombre to start:
- The point where your natural color and tint mix is just as important as the choice of color. It will be safer the closer to the tips you start.
- If the colors blend more relative to the roots, it will seem like you need to dye them instead of being ombre.
- Ombre hair is more suitable for people with longer hair, making it less likely to appear as if it has grown roots. The longer the hair, the lower the ombré can begin to work its contrast.
- In general, the area near the jaw is a good spot for the two colors to mix.
Brush your hair well:
- Make certain there are no lumps or tangles left. It will make it easier to apply the bleach and also ensure that the hair is colored equally.
Put on a painter’s smock or old T-shirt:
- It is very likely that during the process, bleach or dye will fall on your clothes. A painter’s smock can help, but if you don’t have one, you can also wear an old shirt that can get dirty.
Put on gloves:
- These usually come with dyes, but you can use anything made of rubber, vinyl, or latex if not.
- Recollect that it is very important to wear gloves when coloring or bleaching your hair. If you don’t, you may also stain or discolor your hands.
- If you don’t wear gloves, you can end up coloring or bleaching your hands as well as your hair. The bleach can also annoy your skin, causing a burning sensation.
Mix the bleach:
- Unless you are doing an Ombre in reverse, you will need to use bleach to lighten the color of your hair.
- It is possible to use blonde dye, which is safer for the hair strands, but it does not lighten the color too much, so the result will be much more subtle.
- The developer comes in 10, 20, 30, and 40 volumes. However, you shouldn’t need 30 or 40 volumes to achieve an Ombre look.
- The easiest and cheapest way to bleach at home is to use equal parts of 20 volume peroxide and bleach powder.
- Mix 2 oz. (56 g) of 20 volume peroxide and another 56 g of bleach powder until completely blended into a creamy mixture.
- Permanently mix the bleach in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling its fumes excessively.
Divide your hair into sections:
- Part your hair with a part in the middle so that it is “half and half”. Then divide both halves into as many teams as you want. Finally, divide each of them in half again so that the hair is divided into quarters.
- If your hair is very lengthy or thick, you can separate it into more sections.
- Pin each section to keep it separate from the rest. If you use clips, always make sure they are not metallic, as metals can react with the chemicals you use on your hair.
- Tease your hair around the area where you want the ombre to start. Teasing your hair will help avoid a rough line where you apply the bleach.
Choose the application tool:
- If you are using a stain or a bleached set, you will likely have a small brush to apply the bleach with.
- If not, any brush that is soft and small will work as well. Make sure to use one that you don’t mind throwing away once you’re done.
- Alternatively, a similar small soft brush will work well for the application. Just be sure to use a brush that you don’t mind throwing away after you’re done.
It begins to bleach the hair:
- Apply the bleach starting at the ends of the hair and work towards the line where you want the ombre to begin.
- Don’t be in a rush or work with large sections, do it so that all areas are covered equally with the bleach.
- Make sure to apply the bleach evenly to both sides of your hair. Take a look in a mirror to make sure the bleach starts at roughly the same point on both sides.
- Make sure to cover all the hair that you want to bleach. Look closely at the strands for points that you may have missed.
- To avoid a sharp line or boundary line, apply the bleach with an applicator brush and make vertical strokes across the hair lock, rather than painting the hair in a horizontal motion.
