I know its been done, I know every girl & her cat has ombre hair but I still really love it! I first had it done last September in a salon, but paying nearly £60 for what isn't even a full head of highlights I thought I would do it again myself. I've since re-ombre my own hair 3 times, but wanted it brighter for summer so went over it again with a lighter kit.
The L'Oreal Wild Ombre kits are so easy to use, really there is no real skill needed to get the right results. A week before I planned, I made sure my ends were in the best possible condition with lots of heavy duty conditioning and hair oils to give it the best chance as it is a bleach your putting on.
You mix all the ingredients, wear the stylish plastic gloves and split your hair into two bunches. Now when I had mine done the first time at the hairdressers I talked with her about how to get the most natural look, she showed me how to apply it in different places, not on all the hair. So to get a natural finish, without the straight line that comes from using the brush, take a section and spread on the dye, then, using your fingers either brush the dye up a bit to blend the line. Leave some bits out and start at different parts.
|Before - Old Ombre dark blonde with gingery brown|
|After - New Ombre|
What do you think, do you still like ombre? Have you had a go with these kits?
