Trend Alert: What Do Cake, Shower Curtains and Hair all Have in Common?

 

 

One of the hottest new Design trends of 2012 is Ombre. A French word which translates to “shadow”,  Ombre is simply a gradation in hue from light to dark or dark to light.

When I first started to notice the Ombre hair trend, I thought the celeb really needed to get to her stylist. Now I understand it is a “look” and not a way to simply save on Salon visits.
