Ombre Hair Extensions
Popular in modern times for many different types of hairstyles, ombre doesn't refer to an exact colour, but instead a change in colour. It refers to the gradual, yet noticeable changing of colour from one shade to the next. So, ombre could be red to blonde or vice versa, or brown to blonde or vice versa. It could even refer to a vastly different change, as long as the change throughout the hair is gradual. Getting an ombre style done professionally is costly and takes a lot of time so many choose for ombre hair extensions instead. There are a few different types, each used for varying types of hairstyles.
Perhaps the most common colour when it comes to ombre hair extensions is brown to blonde, but it could be virtually any colour to any colour. Other popular colour choices include red, pink, varying shades of blonde, varying shades of brown and multi-coloured extensions (one that have more than one change). If the description of an ombre extension only gives one colour, that is typically the end colour (at the tip of hair, not at the root).
Ombre clip-in hair extensions are easy to use for anyone, and it doesn't take a stylist or hairdresser to apply them. As the name suggests, these types of hair extensions simply clip in to hair. You will want a good idea of how you want hair to look, so you can purchase the right length, and human hair extensions are the best choice when it comes to clip-ins.
Tape-in extensions have a small section of glued tape that gets applied to hair throughout. As it's tough for you to see the back of your head, these types of extensions are best left to a stylist or hairdresser, or even a knowledgeable friend. Look for different colours and styles, such as wavy or straight hair. With tape-in extensions, it's okay to use either artificial or real human hair.
Ombre weft hair extensions are another popular choice.
