Trend Alert: Mermaid Waves with Ombré Color Shading

Attention long-haired lovelies! Cascading mermaid waves and subtle, sexy ombré hair color remain wildly popular this season.

To make your wavy style unique, ask your stylist to create an ombré effect by adding a darker shade (from the same color family) on the last few inches of your hair. Aside from making a standout beauty statement, the deeper color will also make your hair look thicker and longer! 

Word to the wise: The last few inches of your hair can be quite porous. It takes a beauty professional to keep your ends true-to-tone.

Make waves with these quick how-to tips:
