Ombre hair can be bold, or not. The choice is yours and the possibilities are endless. If going with a bold, bright colored look, pair your hue with an opposing color for hi-def contrast like blonde and lilac! The one above is actually a reverse ombre where the upper part is lighter–another cool ombre hair color idea to try out!

2. Peacock Tail Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas

I’ve always marveled at how beautiful a peacock’s tail is! The colors, the mixture of those colors, and how a peacock always works its tail from the moment she opens it to the time she struts her stuff. Well, enough of the beautiful peacock, let’s focus on this peacock tail-inspired hair color, which I think is just as marvelous!

3. Galaxy Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas


Channel the cosmic skies with the ever popular galaxy hair ombre! Cosmic blue and purple ombre is always a huge fave because of the cool tones. However, I specifically picked this one because of the added burgundy color at the bottom…because really, there are also red lights in the cosmic skies too… and I just really love the shift from blue to purple to burgundy!

4. Blue and Green Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas


Sure. I’m also a fan of the mermaid hair ombre (aqua blue and green), but it’s a tad too bright for my liking. And so, I found another one that suits my taste better. This blue and green ombre is definitely something I’d like to wear someday. I find the color combo to be cooler on the eyes. It doesn’t grab as much attention as the classic mermaid hair ombre, but I think there’s a lot of people who will really find this cool too!

5. Classic Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas


This is where it all started ladies. The classic brown ombre is surely a keeper! If you don’t like bold, bright or pastel colors, then classic really is for you. This ombre look is perfect for everyday, casual wear, yet still suitable for any occasion and outfit.

6. Bright Rainbow Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas


On the other hand, if subtle is not part of your hair vocabulary, then this bright rainbow ombre definitely is! With the perfect combination of brilliant colors, this look is for the bold, daring, and those wanting a dramatic change. Positive vibes all around gals!

7. Pastel Rainbow Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas


Are you in love with the rainbow ombre but want to take it down a notch? I suggest the pastel rainbow ombre! Ditch the bright colors and opt for pastel…because pastel is heart!

8. Burgundy Red Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas

This beautiful burgundy red ombre look gives off a smoldering, dying embers color. We love the dark hue and feel this is the perfect combination of bold and delicate. I’ve always been a fan of red, I think it’s a very fierce colors to wear…quite empowering if you ask me!


When it’s hard getting up on Mondays, just think about the lipstick you’re going to wear!

Oh, hail thee mother of dragons! Are you a fan of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones? She might be a platinum blonde there, but I think this fiery orange ombre is the perfect hair color for her. So if you want fierce and fiery, get this hair color ombre now!

Definitely, one of my ultimate faves (but can never wear) is the blonde and pink ombre. It’s really a gorgeous combination because of the lightness of pink blends beautifully with blond hair. So if you’re a blonde-haired gal, pink is surely a color on the table!

12. Pink and Peach Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas

Strawberry peach sherbet anyone? This hair color does remind of ice cream, a cold sweet one on a hot summer’s day. While blonde and pink work great, you can add a touch of peach for something uniquely different! Looks quite tasty too, don’t you think?

13. Orange to Pink Ombre | Ombre Hair Color Ideas


And before I leave the realm of pinks, oranges, and peaches, I give you this one! Isn’t this gorgeous? Fiery orange on top then slowly fades into a pastel pink at the hair ends… this is what you call #hairgoals! Dare to be different? This is the ombre hair color you need!
