Mindy’s Latest Project: Bringing Ombré Back

Mindy Kaling, most famously known for her starring role on The Mindy Project, recently debuted a hot new look that has everyone buzzing. Mindy has longbeen recognized with her glowing caramel complexion and dark, sultry locks but as of late she has been spotted sporting a light golden shade on the tips of her hair. Yes… the ombré is officially back (after just a short hiatus).

So why does the unexpected blonde shade work so well on the actress? It compliments her skin tone and doesn’t have any of the brassy or unpleasant undertones that can ruin an ombré coloring. You can achieve this by using a blue or purple based toner to nix the red or orange tones that can linger. Mindy also kept her choice of blonde at a reasonable level in comparison with her natural hair color, making the transition between shades easier. This look is proof that when done right, ombré still stuns!

What we love most about this look is that it allows Mindy to show off her stylish and fun personality; it lets her keep her natural look while giving her that extra big of glam. The only thing we’re wondering now is whether Mindy’s having more fun now that she’s gone blonde…
