Sombre How-To With Nutrisse Ultra Color | Hair Color 101

Short for soft ombré, sombre is a more gradual fade between darker roots and lighter mid-lengths and ends. With minimal regrowth lines, it's a low-maintenance look you can easily create at home. In this hair color tutorial, fashion and beauty blogger Daniela Ramirez shows you how to get the look using the Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color High Lift Collection, which has a unique brush applicator that's perfect for special effects.

 

Prepare to Color

Prepare to Color

Before you get started, do a 48-hour skin allergy test. To begin the application, clip up the top section of your dry, unwashed hair with non-metallic clip, leaving the bottom layer free. Wrap a towel around your shoulders and put the gloves on. Twist off the top of the applicator, add the color creme to the developer then add the fruit oil concentrate.

Decide where you want your sombre to start then gently squeeze the developer bottle while brushing through small pieces of your hair to apply the color. Once your bottom layer is complete, drop a section of hair from the clip and repeat brushing the color through the desired area of hair. Make sure to leave pieces of hair in between for added dimension.
