When the weather starts to get warmer, it’s only natural that you’d want to lighten up your wardrobe, makeup routine—and yes, even your hair color. And brown hair with blonde tips (a.k.a. ombré) continues to be on-trend—especially during the warm spring and summertime months. Learn why we’re obsessed with this gorgeous hair color idea, how to get the look at home, and how to take care of your brown hair with blonde tips.

Why You Should Add Blonde Tips to Brown Hair

Ombré hair is still popular after many years for good reason. For starters, adding a bit of blonde to the ends of your brown hair can help create a sun-kissed look that’s perfect for the spring and summer months. What’s more, since ombré is focused on the ends of your hair, it’s very low maintenance—that means you won’t have to worry about hitting up the salon and seeing your colorist for frequent root touch ups. (Score!)

What You Need to Know Before Adding Blonde Tips to Brown Hair

Of course, it’s important to note that in order to get brown hair with blonde tips, you’ll need to bleach the ends of your hair. And the darker your starting brunette shade, the more work may be required to get the end result you’d like. So, while you can get ombré hair at home, you may want to consider visiting a pro colorist if you’re starting with dark hair.

How to Get the Ombré Look at Home

Decided to take the DIY plunge? Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Ombré Bleach to get the job done on dark blonde, light brown, or medium brown hair. The kit comes with a developer crème, bleaching powder, lightening crème, conditioning shampoo, DIY brush, gloves, and instruction sheet to make the process easy. Make sure to follow the directions included with the packaging!

After you’ve added blonde tips to your brown hair, you can add a pop of color if you’d like with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color, which comes in a variety of eye-catching shades including peach, pink, soft pink, purple, indigo, blue, and aqua. Before applying the color of your choice, pre-lighten targeted ombré strands with the bleach, then move on to the color. Apply the color to the ombré strands for a customized look that’s oh-so-pretty.

How to Take Care of Your Brown Hair with Blonde Tips

Once you’ve added blonde tips to your brown hair for an ombré ‘do, it’s time to make a few changes to your hair care routine to help keep your mane looking and feeling its best.

1. Use a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair. Clear some space in your bathroom for the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner. Apply the shampoo to wet hair, then rinse. Follow up by applying the conditioner, leave it on for one to two minutes, then rinse.

2. Add a mask to your weekly hair care routine. With color-treated hair, sometimes you need to rotate in a deeper conditioner. So, once or twice a week, use the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Ultra Recovery Mask instead of the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner. After shampooing with the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, apply the mask and leave it on your hair for three to five minutes, then rinse.

3. Embrace your hair’s beautiful natural texture. Brown hair with blonde tips looks oh-so-pretty when paired with natural curls and waves. Give your heat tools a break and air dry your hair instead. When your hair is wet, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse, L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream and let your hair do its thing.
