What is Black Ombre Hair?

A black ombre hair color is when your hair is gradually blended from a black hue to another color hue. Typically, it’s blended from a dark color to a lighter color, starting at the top of your head and changing its shade down to the ends of your hair. If it starts with a dark color and blends to a lighter one, it’s called a reverse ombre. Black ombre hairstyles produce some great contrast.

Don’t you think it’s time to elevate your dark strands and make a head-turning impression? If so, this hair color is highly recommended for you!

How else can you own a low-upkeep yet intensely glamorous hairstyle?! With your roots left naturally dark and shadowed, this striking dye job can last months before you need to revisit the salon. Grow-out is the last thing you need to worry about!

Black and Burgundy Ombre

#5 Fashionable Black and Burgundy Ombre

This dark ombre hair is a deep and sultry burgundy ombré balayage! I love the depth of the color, as it takes on different tones in different lighting. If you’re considering burgundy ombre for your black hair, remember that it’s a fashion color so that it will fade faster than your average color. So, upkeep with visiting your stylist to re-tone the burgundy ends occasionally is essential to keeping the vibrancy! Unless you have natural level 1 or 2 black hair, you must get root touch-ups occasionally to keep your look tied together and your black ombre hair dye seamless!

Light Brown to Black Reverse Ombre

#6 Light Brown to Black Reverse Ombre

This reverse light brown to black ombre hair color was started by giving babylights through the top to create more contrast, then it was blended down to a level 2N on the ends. This shade of black ombre is great if you want something different from the norm and don’t want to damage your hair with a lot of bleach. Use a sulfate-free color shampoo and conditioner to keep your color fresh! If you want a luscious chocolate hue, apply hair oil or silkening mist/serum for a shinier finish.

Black and Dark Blue Ombre

#7 Charming Black and Dark Blue Ombré

Since midnight blue is the hottest color, why not try a blue-tipped black ombre? With shiny indigo tones peeking out of your normal black hair, you’ll serve looks with this trend!

Black to Silver Ombre

#8 High-Contrast Black to Silver Ombre

I love the high contrast of these black to blonde ombre locks! This platinum/silver balayage offers lighter ends that pop against your natural root. If your natural color isn’t quite dark, achieving this overall black and platinum hair ombre may take a few rounds. Keeping the health of your hair should be a priority!

Black to Lavender Ombre

#9 Melted Black to Lavender Ombre

Lovely lavender ombre works with any previous hair color you’ve had. Growing your hair out with your natural black roots won’t be a problem.

Black to Brown Ombre

#10 Warm Black to Warmer Brown Ombre

This ombre look is perfect if you have darker and natural-colored straight hair. It’s one of my favorite tones to work with. Keep in mind that it’s a very warm tone. Make sure that the tone fits your skin. I love this black-to-brown ombre. It’s very low-maintenance with the root shadow/ombre effect. I always recommend a hydrating shampoo/conditioner with any of my Ombre girls to help keep the shine after lightening the hair.

Teal and Black Ombre

#11 Trendsetting Teal and Black Ombre Style

This black to teal ombre contrasts the colors, making the teal pop! This color looks great, curled or straight. It’s a lot easier than it used to be to upkeep vibrant colors because major hair color companies have started selling permanent fashion colors. For the model in the picture, a permanent mermaid teal by Matrix Socult was used because it will last much longer!

Black to Blue Ombre

#12 Glossy Black to Blue Ombre

Change your look with a new ombre hair color! This blue-dipped ombre end is a color transition from jet-black roots you want to take advantage of.

#13: Medium-Length Black to Bright Pink Ombré

Spice up your medium-length black hair with a bright pink ombre. Remember that if you have color black or dark hair, your ends must be lightened to blonde before adding the pink for it to pop. Once your ends are light enough, you can start playing around with shades of pink or other colors.

#14: Cool-Toned Blonde Ombre on Dark Hair

One color combination to consider is a cool-toned blonde ombre on dark hair. Winter weather invites icy tones in women’s styles, and a cool ash-blonde ombre sets the perfect tone. Black and white hair may be achieved with this method, too. To style, keep it simple to allow your color technique to shine. Use a large barrel iron for your loose curls on the ends for soft movement.

#15: Smokey Dark Ombre

One color combination to consider is a smokey ombre if you have dark hair.

#16: Effortless Golden Bronde Ombré for Black Hair

If you want to warm things up on your dark or black hair, consider a golden blonde ombre. Best completed with the balayage technique, your stylist can lift your dark hair at approximately 6 levels and tone it with a gold base. This will effortlessly blend dark into a caramel blonde and keep your color warm and rich.

#22: Stylish Green and Black Ombre

An unlikely pair of black and green hues that birth a magnificent child of deep ivy locks.  This mid-length ombré is called a dark forest. I used a combination of 5 different direct colors by Pravana to create it. If you are considering this color, I recommend having your color retouched on a 5-6 week basis. A personalized color shampoo/conditioner would also be recommended (Pureblends). Also, Olaplex is a must when doing colors like this.

#23: Black to Red Ombre with Highlights

This black ombre has a red hint in color with a smooth, highlighted fade. If you’re a woman with damaged dark hair, I wouldn’t recommend this color because it must be lightened to a level 8-10 for the color to be vibrant. This black-to-red ombre color would look neater curly or wavy than straight, so most women can pull it off with some layering to show dimensions.

#24: Subtle Black and Dark Brown Ombre

In this look, the color blends from a deep and dark brunette root into a natural ash brunette balayage ombre. I love this color’s subtle dimension and its cool and beige tones. A dark brown ombre hair color is low-maintenance. It’s great for dark-haired ladies that want to avoid being in the salon every 6-8 weeks. With balayage, you can get away with going 3-6 months without needing it touched up, especially with this color because it’s so subtle.
