Well, I had never dyed my hair before and I was just totally freaked out to do it, but I wanted to do ombré so badly that I finally went to get it done on an impulse. I told my hairdresser that I wanted something very subtle and gold-toned–no bleaching or blond. I came out of the salon feeling totally relieved…I LOVED it. My hairdresser did an amazing job.
Now that I've taken the baby step of actually dyeing my hair, I kind of wanted to make it a little bit more dramatic. However, when I was taking pictures for the last Stalk My Style post, I was surprised by how well you could see the ombré in the pictures, and since then I think I've decided to keep it as is. I like it looking more natural and subtle, then it looking like “HEY EVERYBODY I DYED MY HAIR,” which is just not my personality. Like actually, I'm just not cool enough to pull that off.
Anyways, I've included some pictures of my hair post-ombré, and I hope this gives you a good idea of how you can go about doing ombré in a subtle way, especially if you are a baby about dyeing your hair, like me.
P.S. These pictures were taken about two months after dyeing my hair.
