How can I express myself to the owners of long curls? Naturally, it is worth playing with tonality, for this purpose the technique of ombre was invented. The most common is the classical painting in two colors. Many blondes experiment and perform the reverse ombre - from light to dark. The most natural is blonding with the effect of overgrown roots. This painting is applied to dark hair. Some fashionistas prefer to dye ombre to long hair with a clear transition from one shade to another.

After coloring, the ends look three or four shades lighter than the root zone. The length of the ombre can be different, it depends on the desires of the long-haired beauty. The middle of the painting is pumped, most often at the level of the ears or cheekbones. If the curls are very long, the ombre begins at the level of the neck or shoulders.

Wizards achieve a change in the color of the tips by 3-4 shades. Sometimes the girls specifically lighten the roots and perform a very contrasting ombre, putting on the ends of the black paint. This effect looks very stylish.
