As women, we treat our hair as an accessory. We curl, straighten, pull it back and hairspray the hell out of it to add style, and of course, add color(s) to keep it interesting (and to cover the greys, but shhhh! don't tell). When it comes to color, there are the basics- blonde, brunette and red, but the latest trend, ombré (the French word for shade or shadow), takes adding color to a whole new level. If done right, this gradated dying technique is a knockout, but too much contrast can leave you looking like your roots are in a serious need of a touch-up.
