There are some things that are just no-go’s during pregnancy: cocktails, raw sushi, cigarettes. Other things are questionable: hair color, for one. However, most women choose to play it safe. So what are you supposed to do with your hair and those dark roots? (As if you didn’t have anything else to think about, like the growing person in your womb.)

Try out the ombre look says Mazza BenTov, new mother and colorist at the Valery Joseph Salon in New York City. “A soft ombre look where roots are left natural and the tips are highlighted a lighter shade achieves a multidimensional look while keeping the color chemicals away from the root of the hair and scalp. This trend, which has been very popular among pregnant Hollywood and new mothers, is cost effective since you won’t need regular touch up appointments as it is made to look effortless. The ombre look can be easily obtained through balayage, a free-form artistic technique which allows for highlights to be directly painted onto the hair.”

This is a good look even if you’re not expecting. Don’t believe me? Ask Leighton Meester. What do you think about ombre hair: hot or not?
