As the name suggests, all Sombre is, is a subtle version of the Ombre hairstyle.  That is what the S stands for. It is a lot softer and you can achieve this look by growing your highlights gradually out. It tends to be softer colours which are slightly lighter on the ends.  The appearance of the darker roots are less obvious.
