Remember when letting your roots show was a definite no-no? Welcome to the heyday of two-toned a.k.a. ombre locks. This low-maintenance, kinda-crazy coif hit the scene hard last fall (just check out the daring versions on Refinery29), was a staple with stars this summer, and has gone mainstream since then. Yep, September’s Lucky even had Olivia Villanti, associate online fashion editor, giving it a go.
But don’t go DIY dipping your hair in bleach just yet. Ask a stylist or pro to give you a fool-proof fade-out—it’s the perfect in-between look to grow out your lighter summer blonde for a darker fall color. Or you could just keep your two-tone tresses when the weather gets colder—stars like Rachel Bilson, Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad, Drew Barrymore and Alexa Chung have been spotted with this look.
With more celebs like Kristin Cavallari joining in by the day, we’re pretty sure this trend is here to stay, but only time (and the ‘dos at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week) will tell us for sure. (PS—we also can’t decide if we love or despise KC’s Farrah Fawcett mane.) Readers, before we get all tressed-out, we turn to you for your insights….
