An Ombre is a seamless and blended lightening of the ends of the hair. The lightened ends can appear natural, known as a Sombre, or they can be made to appear highly contrasted with the rest of the hair. A Reverse Ombre blends from a lighter color at the scalp to a darker color on the ends.
A French originating word, pronounced ‘Om-Brei,’ means to have tones of color shading into each other.
