Check out how-to get the Side-Swept Red Ombré Look with L’Oréal Professionnel‘s easy to follow steps!


The It Look: Red is mesmerizing, exciting and just a little bit dangerous, which is why it continues to inspire today’s top designers. Red dominated the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalks, morphing from retro patent at Dolce & Gabbana, to nostalgic and provocative leather at Anthony Vaccarello. For this Side-Swept Ombré It Look, a vibrant mix of L’Oréal Professionnel INOA red hues were applied primarily through the ends, rejuvenating the traditional ombré. The asymmetrical side-sweep, is one of this season’s hottest hairstyles, perfectly plays up the drama of the red ombré. This cutting-edge technique gives dark hair a stunning and striking intensity, while adding a playful vibe
