How Much Does Ombre Hair Cost?

Ombre hair became a phenomenon in the early 200s when the artist Aaliyah had her hair dyed in a gradual fade from black at the roots of the hair to a lighter color near the top.  Originally, the hair gradually lightened from dark to light; however, it has expanded to other techniques.

  2. Kathryn Foster-Martin (Pt charlotte,  Florida) paid $ and said:

    I charge 165 for my ombres because they usually require bleaching and toning. A good quality ombre requires a time consuming sectioning process as well so the hair fades gracefully in color and doesn’t look like you used box dye and grew it out. My clients usually request that their color begins about 3″ from the scalp, so no retouching is required for about 4-6 months. The amount of root color is, of course, a matter of personal taste. Some like more, some prefer less.

    The only clients that return sooner are those with gray hair. Then i simply retouch the root area with base color to cover the gray.

    Was it worth it? Yes
