The Kardashians are not only known as fashion moguls, but beauty risk takers. Their bold locks are always the center of attention, and right now the world is buzzing about Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s fab new Ombré colors! Find out how you can recreate both sisters’ looks with our step-by-step guide below.
So how can you land the same color as Kim and Khloe? With the help of L’Oréal Paris Féria Wild Ombré at-home kit! With three shades to choose from (we suggest dark blonde to light-brown), beauty gurus can achieve the perfect graduated dark to light effect with a simple flick of the wrist.
To get started, lightly stroke the ends of your hair with the patented Expert Brush, which L’Oréal kindly included in the kit—for free! For Khloe’s drastic ombré, apply the product several inches below your roots. Looking to mimic Kim’s frosty highlights? We suggest working the dye closer to your natural color for a blended result. The best part is that you control the color. Plus, you can create your new bold ‘do without even leaving the house—hello pajamas and slippers!
Afraid to take the plunge? Start with a sombré (subtle ombré) which L’Oreal professionnel artist Jason Backe says is, “natural and believable – it’s the perfect transitional hair color!” While chatting with the hair guru, we not only learned that the product is great for any hair color (yes, we mean blonde, brunette, red—you name it!), but that sombré is easy to maintain if you work off the natural base of your hair.
“I use L’Oreal Professionnel INOA (ammonia-free in-salon permanent hair color) to create the base shade, then a demi permanent with no lift at the scalp (like L’Oreal Professionnel DiaLight) in a shade that matches your natural/INOA base shade,” Jason explained. The next step? “Work that gradually into a subtly lighter shade through the mid-lengths and ends.” Then voilà—you are officially the proud owner of a sombré!
