my turn at ombre hair
I'm a control freak, so I hate leaving the fate of my hair in a stranger's hand. Did this at home with Loreal's Frost & Design (make sure you pick the one compatible with your current hair color, ie for dark to light brown, etc). I split the mix in half and used the first half to highlight half of my ends, waited about half an hour, mixed the second half and applied to the lower half of my the already highlighted ends (if that makes any sense) to obtain a brighter blonde towards the bottom. The top image looks brassy due to the yellow lighting of my bedroom, but the package came with a purple toner, which is supposed to counter-act brassiness, and it did the trick. I'm so happy with the results, considering that I was pretty haphazard in my application. The whole process took me less than an hour.
It's a quick, effective and almost non-committal change because you can always dye your hair again. So far, I've been loving it! You can always send me an email or hit me up on formspring if you have any further questions.
