If you have ombre locks you've probably already experienced some of the many hairstyling possibilities. If you're not yet on board with this particular hair trend, you've at least observed the cool benefits of this style. Ombre hair is fun and versatile and possesses great dimension with its fading color. Ombre hair looks great mid-length or long, and either wavy or straight. As for updos: the top bun or top knot are the ideal hairstyles for ombre hair. Why are these styles so perfect? When ombre hair is tied up, the fading color looks trendy and amazing. So get styling!

Let's create it

1/ Inspiration

Choose whether you want this look messy or sleek. This will show whether you're leaning toward the top knot or more of a high messy bun. Also, remember: higher is better! The whole look comes together when you really position the bun at the "top" of your head.

2/ Do it

For the top knot, use a straightening product in your hair and blow dry. Pull your hair up to a ponytail (as high up as you can) and twist the hair tightly into a knot formation. Secure with pins and smooth fly-aways. Try pulling stray bits of hair down in front of your ears and straighten these wisps for a cute look. For the top bun, you can go ahead and start with unruly or unwashed hair for some texture. Pull your hair up on top of the head and secure with an elastic (leave some pieces out for a relaxed look).

This look is simple to create and is super stylish. Play around with the style and shape of the bun when working to perfect either the messy version or the sleek version. Add accessories or small braids for texture or just for some added intrigue.
