Beachy Ombre Short Hair:Alexa Chung And Miley Cyrus Do It Right

The long and medium length ombre hair trend has been popular for the last few seasons, but now Alexa Chung and Miley Cyrus prove it can work flawlessly for shorter bobs as well. Fashion trendsetter Alexa has been working tousled, ombre waves with her grown-out bob for about three years, while Miley just recently started wearing the beachy look.

We love the effortless look of Alexa’s hair here at the recent screening of The Untouchables, while Miley’s slightly more polished look was also tousled and youthful here at the Hunger Games premiere last month. If you’ve got a chin to shoulder-length cut and have been wondering what you would look like with gradually lighter ends like some of your long-haired style icons, now you can be sure this look is made for many hair lengths.

We love the ease of the choppy, ombre long bob in hues of chestnut gradiated to gold like Alexa Chung or deep mocha brown to sunny blonde like Miley Cyrus. If you are going to go for this look to brighten up for spring, choose the shades that suit your skintone by starting with your natural colour and keeping lighter ends in the same colour family.
