This month MODERN SALON is all about celebrating color trends, but updating those techniques with a spring twist. In L’Oréal Professionnel’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Ombre Nature, it’s all about natural, subtle and chic color, modernizing the ombre result to make it more wearable for more women.

Ombré Nature is more than a technique, says the L’Oréal Professionnel team, it's a color philosophy with endless possibilities for personalization and customization. Inspired by shapes and natural fl ow of veins in leaves, it offers unexpected yet natural color placement. Ombré highlights, used with harmonious global color, gives a more subtle, sophisticated ombré result. Here, three interpretations of the trend are featured: Sophisticated, Cool and Pop.
