Ombre Color

Ombre color is one of the most popular hair color trends among celebrities. Think Jessica Biel and her “rose gold” tips or Lily Aldridge’s natural, sun-kissed ombre. Ombre is a color for all seasons. This advanced color technique is perfect for adding a beautiful range of lighter hues that gradually fade into a deeper brunette tone at the top.

Ombre color is among the hottest trends in fashion again this year. The stylists at our Naples FL hair salon are specialists in the ombre color technique along with other specialty hair color effects such as balayage highlights.

This year’s ombre color is much softer and more subdued than the looks seen on the runways last year. The upper portion of the hair remains a darker color while the tips and lower sections are colored with a lighter shade that softens as it progresses upward, gently blending into the darker region. This creates a beautiful tonal effect that is very natural looking and can be worn no matter what the season. Since the majority of women have brown hair, this is a splendid color service that can add dimension, interest, and beauty to brown and brunette hair color. Mousy hues and drab shades can be completely transformed for a more dynamic style with the addition of a rich color gradation. This is also an excellent option for women who want to cover gray. The process covers gray extremely well while the highlights add extra depth.

Reverse ombre color is another popular trend this year. As the name suggests, there is a reversal in color placement. The roots and upper portion of your hair are colored blonde or a lighter color while a darker color at the bottom blends upward into the lighter shade.

Both ombre color and reverse ombre color require the skill and artistry of an experienced hair dresser. Our stylists at Michael Thomas Hair Design in Naples are highly skilled in both techniques and can help you select the perfect hue to compliment your skin tone. Make an appointment today!


Balayage highlights are beautiful no matter what the season. This gorgeous hair color effect is one of the most sought after looks this year, and our stylists at Michael Thomas are excited to offer balayage as one of the specialty hair color techniques available at our Naples hair salon.

Balayage is a gorgeous highlighting technique that is extremely sought after this year. This beautiful, trendy technique has been spotted on international fashion runways as well as in top couture magazines. Balayage highlights are very natural looking and are created using an advanced technique in which the color is “swept” artistically onto your hair. This is a perfect option for creating hair that appears to have been kissed by the sun with very natural looking highlights.

Like ombre color, balayage is an advanced hair color technique that requires the skill of an experienced stylist in order to achieve a natural looking effect. Our stylists are highly trained in this technique and use only top of the line Redken hair color formulas to provide exceptional results. Redken color allows you to receive an amazing range of hues while leaving your hair in great condition after the service.
