25 Times Blonde Ombré Hair Was Done Right

The first time I got blonde ombré hair, it was life-changing (an expression I usually reserve for things like a cup of pour-over coffee from Blue Bottle). It perfectly evoked the cool, beachy vibes I wanted—despite being a person who didn't and still doesn't go to the beach. That's because when ombré is done right, it's effortlessly chic.

The other amazing thing about blonde ombré hair? You can go months without touching up your color, and your hair still looks like 10 fire emoji. And roots? Sorry, I'm so busy running my own business (or, more realistically, hanging out with my dogs) that I just don't have time to go to the salon every few weeks.
