If you feel that a regular ombre is too tame for your liking, then why not spice things up a little with a reverse ombre. Going from purple to black, this ombre is not for everyone. If you love trying out whacky color combinations and want to create a unique look for yourself, then this style is the one for you. Be warned though, the reverse ombre is a lot more difficult to create than a regular ombre. Also, regular touch-up of the roots is required as having outgrowth that’s a different colour than the purple will look quite hideous. While with a regular ombre you can simply let your hair grow out, you can’t do it with a reverse ombre. Regular touch-ups are the way to go with this style.
Peekaboo Purple Highlights
How about some peekaboo purple highlghts? Because, really, regular highlights are just way too mainstream and boring. The basic difference between regular highlights and peekaboo highlights is that peekaboo highlights are pretty random in their placement, which is what makes them more interesting and unconventional. You can either take chunky sections or thin sections to highlight, depending upon your preference.
