Two years ago we admired Gina Gershon’s dramatic blond tips and guess what?  They have a name now,  and everyone is doing it from blonds to brunettes.  Ombre.  A great, non committal way to throw some light on brunette or some platinum on blond.  Think balayage but more extreme.  This is definitely a technique that flatters darker hair.  Blonds such a Sienna Miller and Lauren Conrad have taken a dip in bleach, but the look really pops with a darker starting color. Drew Barrymore,  Rachel Bilson, Lily Aldridge and Rose Byrne have taken on Ombre with subtle to striking results.
