While your traditional ombre is dark at the roots and gradually gets lighter towards the end, the reverse ombre is lighter at the roots and gradually gets darker. With both types of ombre, more than one color is used to create a soft, gradient effect.

This reverse ombre trend is excellent for those with more coarse or curly hair, or those ladies with dryer hair- this is because the ends of hair strands are normally the most fragile part of your hair. Keeping the color dark on the most fragile part will prevent further damage or breakage, especially damage often caused by bleach or other chemical lighteners. This reverse ombre trend is also excellent for those who already have light-colored hair, since root touch-ups will be minimal or unnecessary altogether. If you are a blonde and considering diving into this reverse ombre trend, we recommend not going TOO dark on the ends- you don’t want to end up looking like Cruella DeVille!

Here are a few of our favorite blonde reverse ombre looks:

We love the reverse ombre trend because you can literally do it with any hair color, not just existing blondes. Doing a reverse ombre on brunette hair adds instant dimension, depth, and visual appeal.
