The latest color trend from L'Oréal Professionnel,
designed by colorist Frédéric Mennetrier.
  • A new trend to the world of hair color, Sombré, is a softer more subtle version of ombre. More natural looking, the technique shows shades that are similar going from dark to light,
  • from base to ends. Therefore, the transition between light and dark is diffused and not as contrasting.
