If there was one beauty trend that we could not escape this year it was ombre. Nails, hair, lips, even eyebrows got the ombre treatment this year.
Nails were the easiest way to get the ombre treatment in 2012. Ombre nails got their big debut on the Spring 2012 runways, so once the weather started to get warmer you could find any number of different ombre nail treatments. It helps that it is actually quite easy to get an ombre manicure and you can easily update for the season by just changing the colours. You could even get an ombre manicure for New Year’s Eve with this look of gold and black nail polish.
Ombre hair took over the red carpet this year. It seemed to hit maximum peak in the Spring when everyone started dying their hair ombre and it hasn’t let up since. Miley Cyrus, Alexa Chung, Lea Michele and Selena Gomez were among the stars who did it best with natural hues. Other stars were more daring and went with bolder ombre dye jobs including Jaime King’s blue ombre hair and Taylor Swift’s pink hair in her recent video.
While the ombre craze has died down a bit, we are sure this is one beauty trend that is going to stick around.
