As with any hairstyle that becomes popular, the ombre look is constantly evolving, and those trying it out are getting bolder than ever! Some stars have even gone as far as to replace the brown and blonde hues traditionally associated with the style with new bold and bright shades for a super colorful look. One such star is Rita Ora, who debuted a sleek ombre ponytail in Berlin, Germany on July 11.
For her performance hairstyle, Rita opted out of her signature platinum blonde locks and went for something edgier. Her overall color was deepened to a caramel shade with her ends dip-dyed blue and purple, starting at shoulder-length. Of course, there's no better way to style an ombre look than a super sleek ponytail- straight hair catches light better and is the perfect way to show off the color change from root to end.
Get the look
So, you have dyed ombre hair and want to try Rita's sleek look? Here's how...
Step one: Create an extreme side parting and begin by blow-drying your hair, always pointing the nozzle of the dryer downwards as you go so that hair dries as straight as possible.
Step two: Once hair is dry, apply a generous amount of straight styling spray and use a flat iron to get your hair looking smooth and sleek.
Step three: Gather your hair in a low side ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Wrap a section of hair from the pony around the base to hide the elastic for an extra-chic touch.
Step four: Spray everything with hairspray and use your hands to smooth and flatten the hair on the top and sides of your head.
And you're done!
