Balayage and Ombre have been all the rage for the past few years. It started with dip-dye, and eventually evolved into ombre, balayage, and then a fusion of both. I believe the end-goal is for a natural looking colour that’s easy to maintain because it’s not dyed to the roots but still noticeable. I’ve also been on the trend for a while because plain black hair just isn’t my thing and I’m definitely not rich enough to dye my whole head and keep maintaining the colour with my quick growing hair which ends up with nasty looking harsh roots. So, I took a step further this year and not only chopped off a lot of my hair, but also dyed it a vibrant, beautiful purple. Here’s how I did it:
I have never been to a salon to get my hair coloured before because I thought the prices were ridiculous for long and thick hair like mine. Also, I’ve heard of so many horror stories that I’m just too scared to do it. Finally, on Wednesday August 6th, I did it. I got my hair ombre’d. I originally wanted balayage, but I feel like my ombre had hints of a balayage look in it.
After getting my hair done, I finally understand why people pay the price to get it professionally done. I was absolutely in love with it! I can guarantee you I spent the day taking pictures of my hair and looking in all mirrors and reflections I walked by. The ombre is absolutely beautiful!
