Hot Hair Color Trend: Bronde Hair

While bronde is a shade between brunette and blonde, "Ombre" is a French word that literally means shaded like a gradient. You'll notice here (and on the next image), the roots are darker while the hair is lighter mid-shaft -- as though the sun naturally lightened the hair in the summer and then fall came around and the hair grew out and...well you get it.
