#29: Long Violet to Rich Burgundy Ombre Hair
This is a violet ombré with a fiery red “camera flash” or “diffused” shine line. It seamlessly blends from a deep violet root into a bright fire red ombré and then back into a violet at the ends. Think about how much maintenance you’re willing to commit to. You’ll have to re-gloss the red frequently with an ombre as fashion-colored as this one because it will fade. The violets tend to fade to brown as well.
To achieve this style, use a good root volumizing product and a 1-inch barrel curling iron. Curl the hair away from the face and use a good heat protectant first. Break up the curls with sea salt spray, and you’re ready for success! The great thing about this long layered look is that it gives easily achievable volume appropriate for any face shape.
#30: Long Black to Amethyst Purple Ombre Hair
Opt for an amethyst purple ombre on your long black hair. The variations of this color mirror a raw Amethyst stone caught in the sunlight.
If you consider this ombre color for long hair, keeping your natural color mixed in the root makes for a pretty grow-out. Also, violet-based tones are a great option for women wanting the best fade out with vivid color. It will eventually fade to a pretty blonde/soft lavender.
#31: Dark Red to Fiery Strawberry Blonde Ombre
This bold, fiery red hair color is perfect for women who want to express their individuality without going too crazy. These colors speak for themselves, and the warm tones will brighten your day. Use a good, salon-recommended color shampoo and conditioner to help maintain the beautiful, radiant tones that can often fade over time.
#32: Long Umber Brown to Caramel Blonde Ombre Hair
This is a more modern ombré. When ombré first appeared, it was a stark difference from dark to light, with a harsh line separating the two. Everyone wants a more seamless transition from natural color to a blonde tone. Leaving the rich brown tones through the ends gives the ombré a more natural and dimensional appearance.
This ombre long hair is for women who can only get into the salon sometimes. Ask your stylist to color your hair once every 4 to 6 months. Keep the ombre hairstyle brighter around the face and focus the blonde toward the ends in the back to ensure a longer-lasting color. Lastly, use a color-safe shampoo, conditioner, or anything that will give the hair extra moisture since lighteners can be rough.
#33: Long Ombre Jet Black to Coffee Brown
For women who want a pop of color, but low commitment, it’s perfect for this long ombre hair. The best part about this specific long brown ombre is how shiny it is and that the maintenance level is low. This color suits all skin types, specifically adding color to fair skin tones and a chic shimmer to the hair for those with a more olive complexion. If you’re on the fence about going for a change, this long ombre is perfect for you.
If you want an ombré like this and want to maintain the color between visits, use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Try Redken Color Magnetics shampoo and the Redken All Soft conditioner. You get color protection and nourishment for those dry strands after the lightening process of an ombré on longer hair!
#34: Deep Cherry to Medium Red Long Ombre
This ombre is a deep cherry red, mixing red with cool tones for an overall “berry” hue. If you’re seeking this color combination, ensure you’re a woman who regularly maintains their color. Wash it with cold water and sulfate-free shampoo to keep it as fresh and vibrant as possible.
#35: Dark to Light Ombre on Long Hair
This is a dark-to-light ombre. Don’t you love the three different colors? You can see the beautiful transformation from a darker brown to a medium brown to a lighter blonde. Always use a color-safe shampoo! If you need help deciding which brand to choose, ask your stylist. Always use a really good conditioner since the ends have been lightened. You want to keep them healthy. Deep condition once a week if possible!
The best thing about a long blonde ombre is that it works for any hair type, color, and skin type. This ombre is best for those who do not keep a scheduled appointment and could be better with maintenance. The natural root allows the hair to continue to have a natural growth.
#36: Long Rich Brunette to Golden Blonde Ombre Hair
This high contrast ombre starts out rich brunette at the roots and melts into a golden blonde at the ends. Skin that is warm and medium with hair that is naturally medium in color and texture is ideal. The ends of the hair are the oldest and most fragile part of the hair strand. When lightening the ends, make sure to consider this.
#37: Ash Brown to Ash Blonde Long Ombre Hair
This ombre hair color starts with cool brown roots and blends into a neutral blonde on the ends. Cool medium skin tones with hair that is naturally ash brown and medium in texture are ideal. If you plan to go ombre, stick with your natural color for the roots. This will keep you from returning to the salon for root touchups.
#38: Middle Part Dark Brown to Golden Blonde Ombre Hair Color
This ombre starts darker brown on the roots and blends into a golden blonde on the ends. Warm medium skin tones with hair that is naturally darker brown and medium in texture are ideal for this ombre hair combo. An ombre doesn’t always have to be curled! A good ombre should look chic and seamless when styled straight as well.
#39: Black to Caramel Blonde Ombre Hair Colors
This high-contrast ombre starts out black and blends into a warm, caramel-blonde color. Warm medium skin tones with hair that are naturally black and medium in texture are ideal. It’s important to perform weekly conditioning treatments on your hair to keep your lightened ends healthy.
#40: Long Chocolate Brown to Dark Blonde Ombre
This ombre only has a few inches of medium brown hair at the roots and blends into a ton of warm, dark blonde. Warm medium skin tones with hair that is naturally medium brown and medium in texture are ideal for this color. Contrary to what you might think, the part where the color transitions to a lighter color can start anywhere in the hair. It can be higher or lower!
#41: Long Black Roots to Deep Red Ombre Hair
Here’s another high ombre. It starts black on the roots and immediately turns bright red. Cool medium skin tones with hair with naturally black roots and medium texture is ideal. You might not have to return to the salon for retouches if you keep your roots natural, but you may have to get the lightened pieces re-toned. If this is not something you want to do often, let your stylist know during your consultation.
#42: Brunette to Light Blonde Ombre
This ombre starts as a lighter brown at the roots and transitions into a lighter blonde around the eye area, highlighting the face. Cool medium to lighter skin tones with hair that is naturally light brown and medium in texture are ideal for this. If you are planning to get a high-contrast ombre, try to keep the lighter part a few inches lower than your eyebrows so you won’t have to worry about changing your eyebrow color.
#43: Long Espresso Brown to Light Brown Ombre Hair
This seamless, natural, rich-looking ombre is espresso brown at the roots and light brown at the ends. Medium skin tones with hair that are naturally brown and medium in texture are ideal. If your colorist asks you if your hair is virgin, that means you have no artificial color in your hair at all. Having an artificial color that is the same as your natural color in your hair no longer makes your hair virgin. Some women make the mistake of assuming their hair is virgin just because they “colored” it back to their natural color. This could cause the colorist to formulate and plan wrong, ending in a serious color mistake.
#44: Long Ombre Dark Chocolate to Deep Auburn
This gorgeous, natural-looking ombre is dark chocolate brown at the roots and transitions into a deep auburn towards the ends. Warm medium skin tones with hair that is naturally dark chocolate brown and medium in texture are ideal.
It’s best to get a trim after getting an auburn ombre done. And always talk with your colorist about your ombre hair color ideas beforehand. Mix and match placements, tones, and levels of lightness and darkness to create the perfect ombre colors for yourself.
#45: Black to Emerald Green Long Ombre
Try a long black to emerald green ombré to test out a bold color without committing the whole length of your hair. An ombré is a great way to test the water with fashion colors because it requires the least commitment in terms of placement.
