how to do White Ombré

Ombré hair requires bleaching the ends of your hair because, for a color that is different from your natural hair color, bleach can strip off the hair color so you can add the color of your own choice to achieve the best results.

If you’re thinking of doing it at your expense, you can do it at home. However, it’s best to seek a professional hairstylist that would help you decide the suitable ombre and transform your hair.

Here are steps you should follow while you’re at it:

You’ll need

  • Bleach
  • Comb
  • Rubber bands
  • Hair Dye
  • Old T-shirt
  • Applicator
  • Developer

Step #1: After selecting the color of your choice, decide which portion you want the fade to stop. The two colors should meet on the lower side. Otherwise, it will look unnatural. Ombré hair is much suited to longer hair than short hair as it allows you to go further down when applying the hair dye.

Step #2: Comb your hair to ensure no tangles remain. It will provide a smooth application of bleach.

Step #3: Grab an old T-shirt because the process will be a real mess. You may end up getting bleach on your clothes.

Step #4: Mix bleach and the contents of the developer. Developer comes in different volumes (10, 20,30, etc.) You can choose 10 or 20 volumes to achieve an ombre look. Not more than that.

Step #5: Part your hair with a tail-comb and divide it into various sections. Half on each side. Divide it further until you can make no more sections. Secure the sections with rubber bands.

Step #6: Wear your gloves and pick out the applicator because it’s time to bleach your hair. Start bleaching your hair from the tips, all the way towards the desired ending line. Don’t be in a hurry while you’re applying the bleach. Take your time, and don’t miss out on any area.

Step #7: The setting time is between 10-45 minutes. For best results, let the bleach stay for 45 minutes. If you’re opting for a lighter shade, leave the bleach for 10-15 minutes.

Step #8: Wash your hair with lukewarm water while wearing your gloves. Make sure that you get rid of the bleach completely.

Step #9: After washing your hair, you want to let it dry until it’s thoroughly dried up.

Step #10: Repeat step #5 before you start applying the hair dye.

Step #11: Read the instructions of the hair dye product you’ve bought and follow the directions to prepare your hair dye.

Step #12: Start applying the hair dye to every bleached section of your hair and ensure that you haven’t missed any spot.

Step #13: Wait for the hair dye to set for the given amount of time written on the hair dye packaging and wash your hair.

Now, you’re all set to rock your White Ombré hair!

White Ombré Vs. White Balayage

White Ombré versus white balayage

People tend to confuse balayage with ombre, but there is a significant difference between the two. In an Ombré hairstyle, the transition from light-colored tips to deeper roots is pretty short, whereas, in balayage, the transition is much longer, and the dye blends well with your natural hair color.

It’s up to you to decide whether you want to opt for white ombre or balayage as both look stunning on their own. However, if you’re going to achieve the desired hair color, you should consult a professional hairstylist who can decide which technique would accomplish the end result.
