Subtle and natural: Soft ombre hair is the hairstyle trend for 2022 with gentle color gradients...
Ombre hair is one of the biggest hairstyle trends of the early 2010s. Even before influencers and street style icons, a previously unknown British presenter, who also worked as a model, became an international style icon almost overnight at the end of the noughties. At that time, the term “it girl” was also coined, which she represented ideally and with an unexcited attitude. Alexa Chung was the name of the woman who swept the globe with the Brit Pop wave and, of course, also dated Alex Turner, frontman of the coveted band Arctic Monkeys, at the time. Her style between French Chic meets Indie Sleaze hit the nerve of the time and from then on she adorned the new street style pages of international fashion magazines. Her hair caused an even greater sensation: dark brown at the base, it became lighter towards the tips, finally ending in a caramel tone. The new dyeing technique was called Ombre Hair and was soon considered the ultimate in hair color. However, like any major trend, ombre hair also came to an abrupt end and disappeared from the scene. Until now - the hairstyle trend for 2022 is called Soft Ombre Hair.
As the name suggests, soft ombre hair is a soft variant of the popular ombre hair. Accordingly, the contrast between the roots and lengths is not as clear as in the original but is visibly more reserved. The difference lies in just one or two nuances that look as if they were drawn into the hair. Alexa Chung herself wears the modern version, which is extremely natural. Hairdressers achieve the effect of a hair color that grows out with soft coloring techniques such as balayage or foliage. If you want to go back to the natural tone from lighter hair color, soft ombre hair is often a desirable side effect.
Soft Ombre Hair can be used for almost any hair color, hair length, and hair structure. Only extremely light blonde tones and short haircuts have to fit. Acne Studios saw a whole range of possibilities on the runway of the autumn/winter 2022/23 collection: from dark blonde to light brown and brunette to red, everything was there. Since the lighter highlights are usually achieved with light coloring and bleaching, a lot of care and regular hair treatments are recommended for these stressed lengths. Then nothing stands in the way of the 2022 hairstyle trend.
