If you prefer to dip your toe into a hair color trend rather than dye your entire head, ombré is the way to go, says Aura Friedman, a colorist at Sally Hershberger Downtown Salon in NYC. “In my eyes, I look at ombré as a variation of naturally sun-kissed hair,” Friedman says. “So whether it’s taken to the extreme — where your hair goes from dark brown to light blonde, or even from your natural color to a shade of the rainbow, or the way it’s evolved now to being more subtle, the whole idea is derived from a look that you’ve been surfing and your hair was lightened by the sun.”
