As i've mentioned before, my hair and me have quite an up & down relationship. I hate it one minute, love it the next, etc etc. When i'm going through a phase where i'm really not pleased with it, i usually semi-permanently dye it or snip some bangs or something along those lines. I've ombre'd my hair before (post on that here) but i suppose i just got sick of it and semi-permanently dyed my hair again, which i think stained the bleached part of my hair as it didn't go back to the way it was.
On a whim, i bought the same highlighting kit i used last time & ombre'd it again! I'm so pleased with it and love it even more than before. The main difference between bleaching it this time to last time was that i used aluminum foil to wrap the ends of my hair so the bleach would do it's magic a bit more. I also tried to make it a bit more of a gradual fade rather than a stark contrast between the lighter and darker hair - i did this by putting more bleach by the crown of my head & around my face.
If you want to know how i did it exactly or you're thinking about doing it yourself, but you're a bit hesistant, watch this tutorial. She's fab & her hair looks lovely, and the video is actually really insightful. :)
A lot of people in the ol' blogosphere are saying they're sick of ombre hair or that it's not as 'cool' anymore because everyone has it, but i don't care! I love it and i think it's really nice for summer. I haven't seen anyone around where i live with it, so i don't think it's a big deal... and even if a lot of people did have it by me, i don't think i would really care to be honest.
I'm quite proud of it and i don't think i'll be sick of it for a while. :)
