From Punk to Mainstream
Ombré hair has cycled in and out of fashion for years. It was popular during the punk scene of the '70s and '80s, with singers such as Debbie Harry of Blondie embracing the look. Back then, it was simply known as two-toned hair.
Today, you don't have to be a punk rocker to embrace the ombré look. For women with dark hair who want a change or for those of you who like to experiment with color, this is a fun option. Ombré creates the effect of surfer's hair—making it appear as if your summer blonde has grown out. For those considering ombré hair color, the following photo gallery features 15 gorgeous examples of the look. Get inspired, then call up your hairdresser.
