Trends can become redundant sometimes. When it hits fast and hard most of us get bored quickly. However when it comes to ombre, most people don’t realize it has in fact been around for many years – and if you ask us, it’s not going away any time soon.

Ombre is a french word that means fading from dark to light. It was meant to resemble the color of a child’s hair. Natural color on children tends to be light around the face and hairline and then dark at the root and fade to light on the ends. This is a youthful, natural look.  Kris Sorbie of Redken claims to be the inventor of this color trend. So, like it or not this youthful look will be sticking around and as summer approaches we will see different variations of this concept on of all our favorite celebs.
