Introducing Ombre Highlights Trend! The French-termed hair trend features darker, more natural hues at the roots with gradually-dyed lightening at the ends. It’s been spotted on plenty of A-list celebs: Chanel Iman, Jennifer Hudson, Naomi Campbell, Raven-Symone, Khloe Kardashian and many others. Finally, a trend that doesn’t require a busy woman of the world to run to the salon every 8-12 weeks for a touch-up!

This style of coloring really became more popular when Khloe Kardashian appeared on Keeping Up with The Kardashians, the color faded to a touch of blonde on the ends. However, if done properly, the process can create quite the bill at the check-out of Fine Artistik Salon, so here’s what you should know:

1. Consider your profession and future aspirations before you go with the bolder shades.
The A-listers have started a trend that essentially looks like "grown out" color, which, thankfully, makes it easier on those of us who just don’t have the time to traipse to the salon every few weeks for a retouch. However, remember, the more creative a person chooses to be with their color shading, the more attention they may acquire.

2. Choose shades that will compliment your skin tone as well as wardrobe choices.
A person can choose one to three colors to shade for the "Ombre" effect. In the warmer months, shoot for lighter, more vibrant shades and in the winter months, choose cooler, more ash tones. For a dark chocolate beauty: deep reds, coppers, and cool ash make for beautiful choices. For the caramel-coated lovely: rich browns, coppers, possibly even violets (depending on career character). For the fair maiden: ash tones, subdued blondes, golden caramel tones will add warmth to her olive skin. But of course talk to our color specialists and both can agree on the color that best suites you and your personality and accomedates your features.

3. If there has been a previous color, you WILL NOT be able to achieve the "Ombre" effect successfully without some color correction (or maybe even more drastic measures).
