To the original question... I put purple pravana pieces in my hair yesterday. I did not like it. So I used a level 5n pravana color. There aren't any traces of the purple left and my hair is left a normal brown not black.

The new ombré is "urban" ombré.. Just doing it with fun colors!! Now that your clients are pre-lightened fell free to have fun.. I agree never have natural roots.. That will still keep them coming in every six weeks!!

My advise would be to re-create ombré to make it new. Fresh. If it bores you or you don't feel inspired by it then make it your own. Add something new to it.
Your clients will be asking for it. And there is money in it. The roots should never be left natural. They should be colored. Then your client still needs to return for touch ups.

i too love the ombre but i do much prefer the softer gradient not so keen on black roots to orange ends! if u have very dark hair then go to a light chocolate, much more classy than brassy!!!!

Ombre  peaked a few years ago however I have a feeling it will be around for a while. It can be as soft or dramatic as one likes. Ombre also being such a high ticket service more than makes up for the fact that a client only gets it done 2 to 3 times a year. Most of my ombre clients return for a glossing service between their ombre services.

Am I the only one who dislikes ombre? To me it looks like grown-out, unsophisticated color - plus, since roots are virtually impossible with a color that starts mid-shaft, there's no compelling reason for your client to return for a touch-up 6 weeks later.

Does anyone have any good tips for the ombre ? It seems to bee all ive been doing. The reds fade quickly unless I use the cheep stuff they bring in. And how long will this trend last?

Such great responses!

Comment by Kurtis Lawrence on May 9, 2012 at 7:49pm

okay here is THE BEST vivid color line I know!!
and I have tried them all!!
hands down acts much like a keratin treatment the way it attaches to the hair shaft and the beauty of it all it has a "eraser" that let you remove ALL the color back to the prelighten hair with NO trace of the original vivid color
