Ombre -What is this Cool new trend?

When I first heard the word 'Ombre' I thought it was a mutation from the Spanish work "Hombre"- meaning Man.  If you see pictures of Ombre hair color - the expression 'Man' is very appropriate because these styles look very amazing.

The term "Ombre' is actually French and  means a graduation of color. The hair is darker at the roots and blends naturally into a lightened mid shaft and lighter ends. Many celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon for Ombre hair color. See Rachel Bilson, Hilary Duff, Ashlee Simpson, Alexa Chung and Drew Barrymore for examples of this beautiful Ombre Hair Coloring.
