How to Dip Dye Turquoise Ombre

Ombre dip dye is very flattering to look because even when the hair starts to grow, it still looks like it was done that specific way, intentionally. The difference between ombre and dip-dyed hair is so small that the only different thing is the final effect.

Dip dye is a contrast between the darker and lighter part or between the two hair colors, whereas the ombre gives a graduated and gradient effect.

Dip dying is more like a painting than coloring. The lines are free, subtle, like painting an art piece. The dye goes asymmetrically up the roots without precision and fine lines. The ombre comes as a finish to gradually connect the colors and present a nice and beautiful transition.

FAQs on Turquoise Hair

Which skin tone and hair type is perfect for turquoise ombre? 

The turquoise ombre hairdo looks better when it is done on a darker base. This means that women with light hair and fair skin tone will not get the same result and effect as women with darker hair and tone.

Turquoise is a vibrant and appealing hair color that is deep and cool. The light base will present a strong contrast, while the darker one will look subtler and more suitable.
