25 Times Blonde OmbrГ© Hair Was Done Right


The first time I got blonde ombrГ© hair, it was life-changing (an expression I usually reserve for things like a cup of pour-over coffee from Blue Bottle). It perfectly evoked the cool, beachy vibes I wanted-despite being a person who didn't and still doesn't go to the beach. That's because when ombrГ© is done right, it's effortlessly chic.

The other amazing thing about blonde ombrГ© hair? You can go months without touching up your color, and your hair still looks like 10 fire emoji. And roots?В Sorry, I'm so busy running my own business (or, more realistically, hanging out with my dogs) that I just don't have time to go to the salon every few weeks.

Ready to lighten up? Here, 25 blonde ombrГ© hair inspirations for your next salon appointment.

Anything we can do, Queen Bey can do better. But still, if our blonde ombrГ© turned out half as great as this, we'd be thrilled. The recognition is due to her longtime stylist, Rita Hazan, for perfectly placed highlights and lowlights.
