After years of umm-ing and ahh-ing, I finally joined the ombré crew a couple of weeks back... and I'm so happy with the results that I thought I'd share them with you all!
Much as I love the dip-dye trend, I don't think I could ever pull off the dark brown roots-blonde ends kinda look, so I opted for a much more subtle, sun-kissed one, and had a caramel highlights through the crown, mid-lengths and front of my hair, with extra colour through the ends.
Despite the abundance of highlight and ombré kits in the drugstore, I just couldn't risk my precious hair turning bright orange (inevitable given the red tinge it already has) with a 'sat on my bathroom floor surrounded by newspaper' jobbie, so I had my ombré done professionally. If you're looking to change the colour of your hair by more than one or two shades, I strongly suggest you leave it to the professionals! Besides, if it goes totally wrong, you'll end up at the mercy of a hairdresser to fix it anyway... it's just not worth trying to do this on the cheap!
Nothing too crazy, but it's given my hair such a lovely lift for summer!
