25 Stunning Examples of Ombré Color for Short Hair

People are apt to associate ombré hair color with long locks. They tend to think of what we like to call "mermaid hair," the kind that falls as far down as the lower back, with beachy volume and texture. Short hair, however, is rarely called to mind. That, our friends, is a mistake seeing as ombré hair works on almost any length, including lobs, bobs, and any other short haircut. No matter the length of your hair, darker roots and lighter ends result in that sun-kissed, gradient effect we all know and love. Yes, we're officially putting it out there: Short ombré hair indeed exists.

We realize that like most things in life, we can't just make a claim without providing any proof. In other words, we don't expect you to simply take our word for it. That's why we curated a list of our favorite short ombré looks from celebrities, Instagram, and expert hairstylists. Keep scrolling to see 25 photos that demonstrate the shorter side of ombré.
