10 of the Coolest Ideas for Your Green Ombré Hair and How to Do It!

You’re probably craving for something new, and spicing up your hair might be just the solution you’re looking for! However, if you don’t know where to start but you’re sure that a cool, striking, and funky-looking color is what you’re aiming for, the green ombré hairstyle is definitely worth adding into your list of options— from blond to blue to grey shades, you can find 10 of the coolest ideas you can do with a green ombré hair, and how you can make that mere idea a reality!

But, first things first, you might be wondering, “What does ombre mean?”. Well, ombré in French literally means ‘shaded’— It has been one of the most popular hair trends for a while now. It’s a kind of coloring technique wherein the different colors blend or transition from one to another smoothly.

So, now that you know what ombré means let’s get back into the cool ideas I’ve got prepared under my sleeves.

The Classic Black to Green Ombre Hair

First up, I have written one of the most common, classic, and yet ultimately eye-catching hairstyles— the black to green ombre hair. You’ve probably seen people sporting this style, and as you can tell, these two colors blend well so beautifully.

Suppose you’re one of the natural black-haired beauties. In that case, this look is easier to accomplish since all you need is to add the green color at the lower end of your hair. Whether it is a light or dark shade of green, again, the results will still leave you looking fabulous.

Another perfectly blended color is the blue to green ombre hair. And a tip from yours truly, with just a tinge of black at the roots, this hairstyle will surely make you feel otherworldly. However, if you prefer a brighter and vivid shade of blue and green, you can also do that but make sure to connect the blues and greens for a smooth transition.

Another perfectly blended color is the blue to green ombre hair. And a tip from yours truly, with just a tinge of black at the roots, this hairstyle will surely make you feel otherworldly. However, if you prefer a brighter and vivid shade of blue and green, you can also do that but make sure to connect the blues and greens for a smooth transition.

If your hair is naturally brown and you don’t want to dye the upper part of your hair any other color, the brown and green ombre hair is an option that’ll still make you look amazing. With the perfect blending and the correct shade of green, you can achieve a unique look.

If you’re not a natural brunette, but yet you want to try out this idea, go for it! The only importance is that the colors— brown and green— must match well with each other.

Now, if you’re one of the bold and daring people that I honestly admire so much, lime green ombre hair might be the style for you since the neon-like color really turns heads your way. The darker shade of green is located on the roots, and it gradually turns into that vivid green until the tips. Plus, this extreme style is ideal for any length of hair.

Another otherworldly and funky look is this pink to green ombre hair that suits both long or shorter hair. You can either start with a vivid and bright shade of pink and end it with just as bright as green, but if you prefer a more gentle pastel approach, that works positively well.

Speaking of pastel, this mint green ombre hair makes your hair look like soft cotton candy— tell me I’m wrong.

Mint green ombre hair can go well with black or ash gray color at the upper half. However, any color that matches the soft shade of mint green will indeed work well. So, with the pale color at the upper half and the mint green hue, the unique blend is definitely something worth trying.

The Dark Forest Green Ombre Hair

The ninth hair idea is similar to the black to green ombre style, but this time, just make the shade darker— like a forest in the dark.

Anyway, this style is ideal if you want to exude that mysterious or dark look.

Emerald Green Ombre Hair

Finally, my last hair idea for your ombré hair is the emerald green color. Like the gemstone, this style will surely make you and your hair stand out in the crowd. Like most of the hairstyles on this list, this is also ideal for both short or long-haired people.

So, what are you waiting for?

How to Do the Green Ombre Look?

 If you’ve reached this far and you’ve picked the colors you want to try out, the question brimming in your head is probably, “How can I do this?” or “Is this easy to do?”  Well, you’re in luck since I have the answers for you right here!

  1. Step One: The first step is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is to pick a color you want to use together with the green. And for the sake of an example, I’m going for the first idea we had on the list above, the black to green ombre hair.
  2. Step Two: Now that I’ve decided what color I’m going for, the next thing to do is decide what to do with it— which color comes first?If you didn’t know already, there are two types of ombré: traditional and reverse. In the traditional ombre, the lighter color is at the lower end of your hair. In reverse ombre, the lighter color is at the roots, while the darker color is at the tips.So, let’s say I’m going for the traditional option. Which color should be on top? The answer is black.
  3. Step Three: Section the hair into four even parts, then next up is the fun part, dyeing. With the four sections, you just made, add some of that jet black dye around the roots of your hair and make sure you’re not going too far down since that’s where step four comes in.
  4. Step Four: Grab that first section and use your brush vertically to bring the black dye lower by an inch on your hair. Remember, blend those lines well for each area, including your baby hairs.
  5. Step Five: This is where the bleach comes in. And a tip from professionals: Never use a bleach developer higher than 6% peroxide. With your bleach mixed well, gather it on your brush, and place it below where the jet black dye ended. Do not include the tips yet. Make sure you’re adding a generous amount of bleach on the midsection, and don’t forget the backside of the hair. Continue thoroughly unto all the divided sections, and again, I’m reminding you to not include the ends of your hair. Then, wait for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Step Six: Next step, we’ll be using the same bleach, but this time, we’re mixing it with a developer with 3% peroxide. Mix well, then proceed to add the mild bleach solution through the end of the hair. Again, make sure it’s all thoroughly placed around the hair to not miss any color. Then, let it sit for around 10 minutes.
  7. Step Seven: Shampoo and condition your hair twice for a more thorough wash, then quickly blow dry before proceeding.
  8. Step Eight: Finally putting the green hair dye into use in this step. Separate a very thick section from the thin layer closer to your neck and ears before adding the green color. Pro tip: When doing an ombré, always start with the lighter shade! Thoroughly continue adding the green color on the bottom half of your hair, then leave it to process for around 40 minutes.
  9. Step Nine: After the processing, it is time to rinse the dye off. Don’t add shampoo, only conditioner. And if you want, add a spray of oil or hair nourisher to keep the hair healthy.
  10. Step Ten: Ombre’s are usually displayed on curled or wavy hair since it amplifies and makes the ombré more obvious. So, after you’ve blow-dried your hair, grab that curler and keep it curling! When done, finish it off with a hair spray that adds more volume and life to your new hair!

There you have it! Now you’re part of the Ombré Club.
