Before & After: From Orange to Ombre


This week we're taking a close up of Lindsay's awesome retro hair for an oVertone before and after on how to go from all one color to a gorgeous ombre.



Lindsay started with a bright copper orange color all over. Since she very rarely uses any heat to style her hair, it's in super healthy condition. Because of this, we used Extreme Red and Extreme Orange Go Deep on Lindsay. (SURPRISE: More damaged hair actually absorbs pigment better than healthier hair.)



To get Linsday's ombre look, start by sectioning your hair to make it easier to work with. 

Then, apply Go Deep in the color that matches your current shade from your roots to about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way down your hair, depending on where you want the ombre effect to start.

Once that's done, start applying Go Deep in the color you've chosen for your ombre to the last 1/2 to 1/3 of your hair. Make sure you apply the conditioner liberally to get a good, even amount of color throughout.

Let the conditioner sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse out like normal! Voila!



Don't have orange hair? No problem!

You can duplicate this look with any base color. You can add purple ends to your blue hair, purple to your pink, or whatever other combination you can come up with.


When you're done, send us a selfie @oVertoneColor!
