Brightly colored locks of hair

Ombre hair has been in fashion for a while. To take this fashion phenomenon to a new level, it is now fashionable to opt for a pink, purple or other crazy color instead of the classic blonde or brown ombre.

Kevin Murphy’s Color Bug

You can get ombre hair using Kevin Murphys Color Bug. It is a kind of chalk that you have to rub over your hair, which makes your hair beautifully colored. It is a nice alternative for those who do not want or dare to permanently color their hair in a brighter color. The Color Bug is washable.


  1. Place a towel around your shoulders.
  2. Dampen your hair a little with a hair mousse.
  3. Use gloves if necessary.
  4. Rub the Color Bug over your hair until you achieve the desired color.
  5. Fix the color with some hairspray.



The Color Bug is easier to use on people with blonde hair. The colors of the crayon are slightly less visible on dark hair.

Permanent ombre

Of course you can go to the hairdresser for an ombre haircut, but you can also do it yourself. Buy blonde hair dye at the drugstore and apply it to the ends of your hair. To achieve a nice transition from dark to light, you should not leave the hair dye on for too long. You have to apply the paint twice:

  • Step 1 : Apply the hair dye to the ends of the hair and let it sit for about five minutes.
  • Step 2 : Rinse out the hair dye.
  • Step 3 : Reapply the rest of the hair dye to the ends of the hair, plus a little above. Let the paint soak in again for about five minutes.
  • Step 4 : Rinse the hair dye again.

This way you get a natural ombre effect. Make sure you take good care of your hair after you dye it. Your hair ends will be dried out by the paint and can therefore use some extra care. After dyeing, use a hair mask for dry hair and let it sit for a while before rinsing your hair again.

Ombre hair care

  • Bleached hair can take on a yellow appearance over time. To prevent this, you can wash your hair with a silver shampoo. That is a purple-colored shampoo that removes the yellow shine from your blonde hair. Purple and yellow are complementary colors. This means that they neutralize each other. So if you wash your hair regularly with a silver shampoo, it will remain beautiful blonde. Use a conditioner after washing your hair.
  • For extra care you can also apply a hair mask.
  • Comb your hair very carefully after washing. Wet hair is sensitive and can break easily. If necessary, use a wide-toothed comb.
  • Make sure you don’t wash your hair too much. Your scalp produces natural oils that nourish your hair. If you wash your hair daily, you wash away these oils.
  • Use a heat protectant spray if you want to curl or straighten your hair. The heat from your curling or straightening iron can damage your hair enormously.



Celebrities are also fans of the ombre trend. Drew Barrymore, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Dakota Fanning, and Beyoncé, among others, have already been spotted with an ombre hairstyle.
