Celebrity hair trend: Sombre is the new ombre!

Now as iconic as the little black dress, the ombre colour trend has well and truly taken the celebrity world by storm and here at Great Lengths HQ, we LOVE it! Having adored the two-tonal-coloured locks of our favourite fashion-forward A-listers for some time now, we were super excited when news landed this week of a softer take on the trend seen on celebrities, aptly named ‘sombre’.

Here’s the lowdown on the most stylish hair colour trend of the season, and how you can get the look with Great Lengths hair extensions


A more grown-up interpretation on the ombre trend, the perfect sombre effect is all about grown-out, gradual colour from the roots to the ends of your hair. For a natural yet stylish look, ensure your stylist adds lighter and brighter colours towards the tips of your hair and around your face, for a sun-kissed look that will add texture to your style and leave you glowing. Our favourite blonde sombre styles have been recently sported by the Hollywood elite, including Elizabeth Olsen, Rosie Huntington Whitely and Cara Delevigne.


For brunettes, opt for honey, caramel and golden shades that are only one or two shades lighter than your roots. Great Lengths Flowstrands hair extensions are perfect for creating a pretty and polished sombre effect, blending seamlessly with your natural hair. Make like Glee actress Lea Michele and Victoria’s Secret Angel, Lily Aldridge and keep your sombre hair extensions looking slick and healthy with our Conditioner 60 sec.

Whether you have luscious long locks or a chic mid-length cut, the sombre style is the perfect trend to update your look this summer. Check out the montage below for more celebrity sombre inspiration and be sure to let us know your comments on our Twitter page – pass the Flowstrands please!
