Is the Dip Dye/Ombre hair trend dead?


Caroline Flack has rocked her dip dye look for a number of seasons, Drew Barrymore is sticking with her ombre locks and Rihanna has just opted for dip dye tresses. We get a lot of requests for dip dye, usually brunette roots with blonde lengths, and it’s a gorgeous look if you keep your hair well conditioned. 


It’s been a big trend for well over a year now, so are we starting to see the trend fizzle out? Nope, we predict it will only get stronger with celebs and bloggers already avoiding the usual blonde dip dye for a brighter and more creative alternative. Demi Lovato complimented her beautiful blonde hair with pastel blue tips and Perrie Edwards from little Mix has just unveiled her pale pink roots with hot pink ends.


Of course, if you are going to try out a new look then you need to be confident in your colour choice. Don’t ask for yellow, purple and green dip dye without thinking it through! Consider your skin tone and your wardrobe. If you’re fair, you will want to stick to pastel shades as this won’t wash out pale skin. If you have a lot of bright colours in your wardrobe, you certainly won’t want to have your hair clashing with your clothes so it might be better to stick with soft blonde dip dye.


It is only hair though, and if you don’t like it, it can be changed. There are plenty of hair dye products in the shops, but they won’t be as strong as salon products and without a stylist to guide you on the perfect colour and apply it for you, you won’t achieve professional looking results.
