This is my first POST on my very own Beauty Blog…and I’m SO EXCITED…alright..here we GO!!! 🙂
In the last year or so I have been so obsessed with the look of ombré hair, but I was always so hesitant to try it…what if it didn’t look good?! But after being inspired by various celebrities & friends…I decided to take the plunge!
What does ombré even mean you wonder? Ombré(a french word) specifically means “shadow” or “shade”. Okay, so now lets break it down in relation to hair…. it simply implies a graduation of color from dark to light, or vice-versa.
My hair stylist was quite confident when I explained to her what I was looking for. I did show her some pictures of celebrities (Camila Alves & Kim Kardashian) and I loved the fact that she was so on top of it. She quickly mixed the color and we got started…..
I’m not gonna lie, the process was long and kinda dreadful… she began to tease the bottom half of my hair in pieces and applied the color on the hair that she teased then wrapped it with foil. She explained there are different ways to get the Ombré hair, but she found this the best way to get the look. I sat for about 45minutes, which wasn’t so bad. Okay, here comes the dreadful part…she took me over to the sink and started to unwrap the foil, and because she had teased my hair in pieces …she now had to brush it all out…OUCH! I have a hard head and even I was cringing . FINALLY..after 45 minutes it was finally all combed out and she continued to wash & condition my hair. She ooo-ed and awww-ed at the color and was very proud of her work and even said this was one of the best ombre’s she had done.
Aside from brushing out the teased hair…I really loved the color and was so happy that I finally decided to do it. One of the advantages about having Ombré hair is when your roots start to grow in you don’t have to run to the salon to get it touched up (like when you get your hair highlighted).
If you have always loved the Ombré look, I would say do it!!! It’s definitely a wonderful look for the summer time 🙂
