Tips and Tricks | Cosmetology School Lee’s SummitFlip It and Reverse It: Exploring the Reverse Ombre Hair Color Trend

Are you ready to spice up your everyday hairstyle but looking for something more daring than a fresh color? Look no further—reverse ombre is in style this season and offers countless color combinations for you to experiment with! Our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit, Kansas, have experience providing clients with gorgeous reverse ombre gradients and have detailed how to achieve this dramatic style change below!

What Is Reverse Ombre?

While traditional ombre hairstyles feature natural-looking dark roots that gradually fade into lighter, highlighted end pieces, a reverse ombre is essentially what the name implies. The reverse color technique features a transition from softer roots to darker ends. This style can be created with a variety of different shades and colors, but one thing is for sure—the lighter color will always remain near the top of your hair!

How To Achieve the Look

When working with your stylist to achieve a reverse ombre, first discuss your hair goals, and arrive with some inspiration photos to help your stylist mix your color perfectly. Once you have determined how intense you wish to go with your roots and what your ends will look like, your stylist will:

  1. Section your hair into quadrants before weaving the horizontal subsections with a traditional weave density.
  2. Apply your lighter root color from the roots to the mid-lengths of your hair, contouring as they approach each section.
  3. Allow the hair to process before rinsing and blowdrying.
  4. Follow up by applying the darker shade to the ends of the hair, alternating painting strand lights and teased hand-painted strands.
  5. Allow the hair to process before rinsing and toning.
  6. Rinse your hair, blowdry, and style it!
