As summer draws closer I continue to look at my hair with a slight grimace. I am a religious hair dye-er, roots are literally the root of all evil and my eyes light up when I look at all the pretty box dyes at my local stores. I've debated if something is wrong with me but as long as celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and hipsters are coloring their hair non-natural colors I think I am OK (not saying anyone with pink/purple/or any color highlights is hipster, because I've done it too.)
Now I am so frustrated with my hair currently because I have been sporting some pretty dark roots. This 'new growth' doesn't exactly make it seem like my sandy blonde hair is natural. Now my normal process has been to go dark for fall and winter and then proceed to a light brown in spring and full blown blonde by end of April to kick off the summer. It is May and I am not my usual bright bleach blonde.
Anyone who knows a thing or two about hair and the process knows that bleaching your hair can be very damaging, and because of that over the years my hair has been pretty weak especially since I didn't start out with very thick or good quality hair. Since I have been trying to grow my hair out I have taken the smart choice of just gradually lightening my hair this year and not going back to my platinum hair. Maybe just platinum highlights. :)
So I have been looking into the ombre hair style. This is where it is light on the ends and darker at the roots. Classy, not trailer park trashy don't worry. Anyone sporting this style? Give me your feed back. Anyone else interested here is a professional tutorial on how to get the look.
