Vibing for hair extensions but feel nervous your new locks won't match the ombré hair color your stylist spent hours applying? The best hair extensions blend naturally with your hair, no matter the color or style. If you’re rocking an ombré look, but wish you could add more length or volume, you’ll need hair extensions that match those multi-dimensional hues.
Here are some of our best tips for buying ombré hair extensions, so your hair looks beautiful (and stays that way) for a long time!
What Is Ombré Hair Color?
Ombré colors add more dimension and drama to your hair with two contrasting color sections blending into one. Ombré utilizes a horizontal placement of color with the transition primarily affecting the ends of the hair. The French word, ombré, means "shaded or varying tone." It’s the perfect color description for a treatment that starts with a darker shade at the roots and gradually fades into a lighter color at the bottom. For a bolder look, the reverse ombré has the opposite effect with hair going from lighter to darker at the ends.
The ombré hair trend has been popular with A-listers and fashionistas for the past decade, but it’s especially loved by those busy baddies looking for effortless upkeep as the hair naturally grows out color in that direction. In recent years the ombré style has evolved into a more subtle blend, allowing your style to naturally look like très chic grown-out highlights without any extra effort. (And who doesn’t love that?!)
This color technique is loved for its:
- Low-maintenance look
- Versatile tones
- Seamless blends into virtually all hair colors
- Longer-lasting effect (less trips to the salon and more money in your wallet!)
Although the price tag on an ombré salon appointment can be pricey, the final look will require much less maintenance and be more cost effective over time! After coloring your hair, make sure you use a color-protecting shampoo and conditioner to keep your varying shades looking fresh. If you have ash blonde hair or lighter shades, look for a purple shampoo/conditioner duo to remove any brassiness. To extend the life of your color, only wash your hair a couple of times a week. This will keep the hair nourished and the color tones vibrant. Make sure to talk to your stylist on the best ways to keep your hair feeling and looking healthy!
Will Hair Extensions Match My Ombré Hair Color?
You can easily add length with hair extensions, but how can you ensure they will match that gorgeous color? If you just walked out of the salon with the ombré hair of your dreams but still feel like something’s missing, ombré hair extensions may be exactly what you need!
Maybe you’re sporting rich chocolate ombré locks or ash blonde curly hair either way, you’ll want to find your perfect color match. With Wicked Roots, you’ll have 42 shades to choose from - ombré hair extensions included! We always recommend ordering three sample Swatch It’s in the closest colors to your natural hair color and comparing them against your hair (from midshaft to ends) in natural lighting.
Still not sure which color fits best? Visit your stylist! Stylists can use a color Swatch Ring to help you pick your ideal shade. They can also dye the extensions if necessary for an exact match (though it’s important to note your warranty will be voided for any alterations to the extensions).
