Guess what?! I FINALLY got my hurr did. I did the ombre (faded hair color), celebrity trend of 2011. I gotta admit, the first time I heard of this trend I was thinking, "That's kinda weird". But what can I say...it eventually grew on me. I know I'm way behind on the trend but that's okay...I don't always follow timelines or current trends. ha
So I did it! I dyed my hair for the first time by myself. Scary! I never really dyed my hair and I am too cheap to do it professionally. So this was a pretty big deal for me. But I wasn't too worried because I figured I could always dye it back or cut off the ends if it's messed up. And I had good training from my trustee youtube friends like this one here. hehe. And I don't remember the last time I got a haircut (probably over 6 months...I know, pretty bad huh?), so I don't care about damaging my already dead ends.
In order to get this effect bleaching is the only way to go. I didn't want to go too drastic and bleach blonde, so I stuck with more subtle shades that blend better with my jet-black hair. Hmm...I don't know...maybe I'll do it again and go lighter. heh heh. But I'm happy with the results and happy to have a change. Anyways, enough of my ramblings...
