HOW-TO: 3 Fall Ombre Hair Color Looks and Color Formulas
MODERN recently received three ombre photo submissions from Joncen Phi, hair designer and creative consultant in Chandler, Arizona. We loved each of them so much we had to show them off!
LOOK #1: Autumn Ombre: Inspired by fall leaves. The look is light yet bold at the same time.
"In this look I used L'Oreal Professionnel 7G + 20 volume for mid shaft of the hair. We used our model's natural roots for contrast and Redken Flash Lift Lightener with 30 volume. I used the balayage technique to create the ombre technique and blended the entire look with a color brush."
LOOK #2: Halloween Ombre #1 (See photo below)
"With the vibrant colors, the client can show off the look in a ponytail, high bun or even when curled for dimension. If the client decides to wear her hair down, she can show her natural color with a peek-a-boo bottom. The client mentioned that she wanted something feminine with her favorite colors, so we put them all together. Great for Halloween because we know she will dress up to match!"
LOOK #3: Halloween Ombre #2 (See photo below)
"I used Redken Flash Lift Lightener with 30 volume. I also used Pravana Vivids Chromasilk: Roots to mid-shaft, purple; Mid shaft blend to end, red. This blend of the purple and red creates a magenta ombre look."
