Subtle Ombré

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! ;)

    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…

      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…. :)

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

    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!

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