All About Ombré

Ombré is a popular fashion and design trend that has been around for a while, but that has only recently gained notoriety. And if you typically shy away from trends, you might want to reconsider with this one, because ombré is here to stay!

First of all, what is ombré? Well, it’s a French word that means “a fabric, whether dyed, printed or woven has color that graduates from light to dark.” Basically, it’s a gradient!

The ombré craze really took off with hair.
