Our Ombré Obsession

All things ombré, a trend I hope is in a steady decline. It is a comeback I once adored and embraced but now loathe. From ombré dresses and shoes to ombré hair, is there anything we can’t ombré to mass market? The trend’s revival kicked off as the most desired hairstyle, sported by celebrities. It wasn’t long before beauty brands jumped on the lucrative bandwagon, offering ombré inspired DIY hair dye kits.

Although I remain a fan of ombré hair, there’s only so much I can take. I dread to think what’s next; ombré cars? Ombré foundation?
