Subtle Ombré

August 1st, 2012

The ombré hair trend has probably just about run its course, but I’m skittish about dying my hair (excluding the pink hair incident), so it took me this long to summon the courage to try it. I asked my awesome stylist if she could create a subtle ombré effect (so my hair didn’t look like the ends were just dunked in a bucket of bleach), and she totally rocked it!

    Man, someone really awesome must have suggested that stylist to you…and the stylist can’t be half bad either :-)

      Yeah, I know. If it weren’t for that awesome someone I’d probably still be soaking my hair with Sun-In! ;)

  4. it looks great on you!
    when i had boyish haircut, i bleached and dyed my hair blonde (don’t ask; i have no idea why). after a month and a half i dyed it again, this time my natural color, and decided to grow it very long. it was weird, but 6 months later the blond showed again, only on the ends thought. i loved it. (but after 2 years every last bit of it is gone, those ends being very damaged). i secretly think i started the world trend of ombre hair back than teeeheeeheee…

  5. I’m very jealous! Your hair looks amazing x

  6. Subtle, natural and gorgeous! Great job by your stylist!

    Love this. How did you get the curls you did? Looks awesome!

      My stylist did the curls with a regular curling iron. It looked like she twisted each section of hair around the barrel multiple times, clamped the iron shut, and slid it down and out of my hair. I can’t use a regular curling iron myself, I have a clip-less one that I love though!

    I’m glad you guys like it too! I was just thinking, my pink dye would show up really well in the bleached strands. Hmmmm…. :)

  9. Totally gorgeous, she did indeed do a great job! Love the curls too :)

    Holy moley! You look amazing! It’s subtle but so obvious at the same time, it’s freakin’ ridiculous! Gorgeous!

  11. If there is one thing that scares me of Ombre is the look that it has been dipped in bleach, but MY GOODNESS, you pull ombre off like I’ve never seen before. I LOVE it!

  12. this is so beautiful!

  13. Wow, your stylist did a great job. I’ve always been wary of coloring my hair too, but if I could get it as natural looking as yours, I’d do it!

  14. I didn’t even know this was a thing!! I really like this idea, I bet it could help with roots showing to. SO good to know. Thanks!! You look beautiful!

    I must say, in the last picture you remind me of a mermaid :)

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
