How to Style Short Hair with Dark Ombre
A dark ombre for short hair can be a little bit tricky to style. The best way to style it depends mostly on the shape of your haircut. As far as the ombre goes, if it covers only the small portion of your hair around the ends, you can wear your hair straight.
However, if your ombre ends a few inches below the roots, curling your hair will make the overall hairstyle look nicer and neater.
