Ombré hair has been one of the most popular hair color trends for years—and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. One of the reasons why ombré hair is such a popular hair color trend is that it’s a low maintenance look—since you only have to color the ends of your hair are lightened, you don’t have to worry about frequent root touchups. Of course, you could head to the salon to get ombré hair, but it’s actually possible to DIY ombré hair at home—with the right at-home air color kit (keep in mind you'll likely need to bleach). Keep reading to learn more about what it takes to get ombré hair at home and our best at-home hair color kit for ombré hair. Then, watch the video above for step-by-step instructions for getting a gorgeous ombré hair color right at home.
What You Need to Know Before Attempting Ombré Hair
Ombré hair might be a low maintenance hair color option—but that doesn’t mean that getting ombré hair is the easiest process in the world. Ombré hair is marked by lightened ends—and that means bleaching is part of the dyeing process. And the darker your starting color (like if you have dark brown hair or black hair), the more time it may take to achieve your desired level of ombré hair. The good news is, once you have ombré hair, you don’t have to worry about touching up your roots, since only the ends of your hair are colored!
Our Best At-Home Hair Color Kit for Ombré Hair
If you have your heart set on rocking ombré hair, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Féria Wild Ombré, which comes in dark blonde to light brown and medium to dark brown. With our at-home hair color kit for ombré hair, you can customize your final look—go subtle or bold, depending on your preferences. For step-by-step instructions for using our at-home hair color kit for ombré hair, watch the video above.
How to Take Care of Ombré Hair Post-Dye Job
Once you’ve followed the instructions in the above video and you have your ombré hair, it’s important to care for it properly. Colored hair requires special care—so look for a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Once you hop out of the shower, spritz on a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, to help enhance your natural texture and bring out beachy waves. All you have to do is let your hair air dry—that’s it! Ombré hair + beachy waves = perfect combo!
