How To Make The Ombre Hair Youseft

Ombre hair is a coloring effect in which the bottom portion of your hair looks lighter than the top portion. To achieve this effect, it is necessary to bleach the lower portion of your hair. If you want to prevent a brassy or orangey color, you can also dye the bottom part of your hair after you have bleached it. This extra step is not required, but it helps to even out the tone of your ombre. Keep reading to learn how to get ombre hair.

Part 1 Ready

1.Select your color. Therefore, you should choose a color that works well with your natural color. The usual options are a lighter shade of brown, a shade of red/auburn, or a shade of blonde.[1]

  • There are two types of ombre: traditional, and reverse. The traditional ombre has a lighter color at the tips of your hair than at the roots, while a reverse ombre has darker tips and lighter roots.
  • Select a shade that is no more than two shades lighter than your existing hair color.
  • The more subtle the color change, the more natural and sun-kissed your hair will appear.
  • Whenever possible, look for mild or all-natural dyes that will be less damaging to your hair.

2.Brush your hair well. Make sure that there are no tangles left in your hair. This step will make applying the bleach easier, but it will also help you to make sure that your hair will be evenly colored.


3.Put on a smock or an old t-shirt and Put on gloves. Gloves generally come with a dye kit but if they don’t, you can simply use normal rubber, vinyl, or latex gloves.


Part 2 Bleach the hair

1. Mix your bleach. Unless you are doing a reverse ombre, you will need to use bleach to lift the color from your hair. There is the option of using blonde hair dye.

2. Begin bleaching your hair. Add bleach starting at the ends and working your way up to the desired fade line. Don’t feel like you need to work fast or to work in large sections; work in such a way that you get all the strands evenly coated with the lightening product.

3. Let the bleach set. Depending on how light you want your hair to be, you will need to let the bleach set for anywhere from 10-45 minutes. To check, remove the bleach from a small strand of your hair after about 10-20 minutes. If you like the shade, remove the rest of the bleach. If you want to go lighter, leave it in and check again in 5-10 minutes. Then wash your hair.


Part 3 Coloring the Hair

1.Section off your hair once more. After Hair Dry, divide your hair into its original sections. Tie off the ends with elastic bands or hair clips to make your dying job a bit easier. Use at least 2-3 sections, or as many more as you need to feel comfortable.


2. Prepare your color. Most box hair dyes require a bit of measuring and mixing, so follow the instructions and prepare your dye. Make sure that you mix your dye in a well ventilated area.


3. Brush in your color. Follow the application instructions that came with your hair dye to properly add it to your hair.

  • If you’re dying your hair with a traditional ombre (lighter ends), then apply the hair dye to all the bleached sections of hair and just a bit further up your strands as well.
  • If you’re doing a reverse ombre, add the color just up to the color fade line, and then a second heavier coat near the tips (similar to the bleach application).
  • Make sure that you coat all of the hair that you want to dye. Inspect your strands to check for any spots you may have missed.

4.Waiting for the color set. Since your hair has been bleached, you probably won’t need to leave the dye in for more than ten minutes. 

5. Wash out the hair color and Dry and style your hair as usual.
