Hair: The Sombre

Ombre and Balayage (ombre + highlights) have been all the rage over the past few years. They are easy to maintain as the roots are not usually dyed so they can grow out, no problem. These styles are also summery with the lighter shades. But they can be quite striking and some people want to opt for something a little more subdued. Enter the Sombre (or subtle ombre) where the shift in colors is, as the name suggests, very subtle. Which is exactly what I want. I've been a proponent of "you get what you pay for" so I don't mind shelling out a little more for a good hairstyle. Having moved to the East Coast, I had to look for a new stylist in NY and found Roy Ren on Yelp. I went to him with a overly sunned (a.k.a too yellow) balayage look, and asked him to tone it down. He was very accomondating and 1.5 hours later, here is what I got. Note: Sombre, ombre and balayage all look so much better wavy, to futher hide the transition of colors and make it more natural. 

Here is how my hair turned out, I originally have black Asian hair. 

So I was really happy with the colors! I like how there is some balayage left, but the colors look very natural and for me, very conservative-workplace appropriate. 

Thanks for reading!

It looks great. I guess, I would like to get some tips on hair care. I am not really good at that.

Your hair looks very natural, and those highlights simply add something pretty to your style. The way you turned out you hair is acceptable in our society!
