So its obvious that one of 2010's biggest hair trends was the ombré dye job. The look is basically a fade from a darker color to a light one or vicesa versa. Its a versatile dye job that you can adjust for all four seasons. ALSO it's great if you can't afford constant touch ups and or don't have the time to do so. This was a popular dye job during the Spring and Summer time of this year but it seems to be making its way into the Fall and Winter months.
I've NEVER EVER dyed my hair before! My friend offered to give me a free dye job for a hair show so I totally took the offer! I was scared because I didn't want to have to deal with roots and all that stuff. Plus, I'm the ULTIMATE procrastinator. So I knew I would have horrible roots if I went with highlights or a lighter color.
I settled with the ombré dye job because it fits me perfectly! No constant touch ups, cheap to maintain, and TRENDY!? I'm there. Ha.
This is how it turned out:
I really like it. I admit at first I was FREAKED OUT. I did cry a little bit... but now it's all good! Its looks best with a relaxed curl or wavy. I'm thinking of possibly going a little bit lighter like in the 4th picture on top of the post.
Gorgeous ways to wear ombré hair...
