Ombre Hair

Hey Dolls! 

Sooo I am sure you all have seen the huge trend that has hit hollywood like crazy! All the celebrities are doing it! It's called Ombre. It's so easy to maintain, especially if you are trying to grow out your hair.  It's all about ROOTS! But it has to be a nice smooth transition from dark to light.  There are soo many different shades of ombre you can do, dark brown to lighter brown, dark blonde to light blonde, the list goes on.  What I love about it is you can let your natural darker colour grow in as much as you want with little maintenance on the bottom lighter section of your hair.  One celeb that has been faithful to this look long before it became such a trend is Sarah Jessica Parker.  I'm sure you are all familiar with the look, she pulls it off great and was a real trend setter.

I have been loving this look for a while and finally decided to try it out myself! I went and got an estimate from a stylist to see how much it would cost me.  I was told around $200! Since my hair was pretty dark there was a lot of work involved.  I was big time down about that and did NOT want to drop that much $$$ on my hair. So I started looking for DIY (do-it-yourself) tutorials on youtube. I am pretty comfortable with dying my own hair I have been doing it on and off for years so I figured, why not! I went out and bought two boxes of bleach and toner and followed this really helpful step by step tutorial... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUCoKfHDPyI

I love my results and I am so happy I did it myself and saved around $180!! Check out the before and after...
