The color: Sombré
Description: "The hand-painted technique is used to show off the layers in the haircut," Gandolfo said. "Sombré blends the natural hair color on the base of the head and lightens the ends of the hair." See Chrissy Teigen's midlength cut for how it works well on shorter hair.
Who it works for: "This works well for all hair types and shades of color," she said, since it is more of a dye style than straight-up shade.
Technique: "Ask your colorist to paint thin highlights around your face to frame your face and paint large V's in their balayage to create sombré."
