30 Brown Ombre Hair Color Ideas
If you’re thinking about adding some new color to your black or darker brown hair, brown ombre hair color is one of the most natural looking ways for you to get in on this popular hair trend. For professional women and low-key fashionistas who aren’t looking to drastically change up their look, brown ombre is the ultimate way to add warmth and interest without going overboard. For lighter haired ladies, a reverse ombre style with a darker brown color at the ends can create a more unique, head-turning hairstyle.
