Before I get into the post I would just like to point out that my blog is undergoing a few changes in it's appearance and I ask you to ignore the changes for now, I just want to be happy with the way my blog looks.

So Monday Night, I finally plucked up the courage to Ombre my hair myself. It was something I wanted to do for a while, as I have just always had my brunette hair and fancied a bit of a change. My main fear was doing it wrong, I hate going to the hairdresses and knew that if I did it myself I would have nobody to blame, and that scared me. But with my 7 year old sister beside me, on call if I needed something, I finally ombred.

The Kit I used;

Loreal Paris Perfect Blonde Creme Highlighting Kit (around £6; Superdrug and Boots)

I was actually a little worried about the kit because it's for 'highlighting' but others had used it and got ombre, and so did I, so don't worry.

Do everything the box says except for getting the ombre result you just put the dye on the ends of your hair and work your way up to where you want the blonde to kick in. Obviously don't put the dye up to a strict line, you want it to blend a little. It's hard to explain but you know what I mean.

The Results;

(I blinked ~apologies~)
I prefer the ends curly with the ombre.
The ends of my hair are abit straw like, but I plan to condition and nuriese my hair lots.

I honestly don't know if there's much more I can say, it really is simple. Bit of a cliche saying here but ~ If I can do it, anybody can ~

Have a good day!

  4. I work in Boots and when I mentioned having Ombre hair I was massively advised against this dye! You have proved everything they said wrong as your hair looks lovely! I used the Jerome Russell Bleach which actually worked really well on my hair but I had to do it twice.

    I'm following you now,

    suits you loads, i agree, i like it best with the curl xo

  8. Ah the ombre looks so much better on you than it does me! My hair is naturally dead straight so the curls I put in it drop out really quickly :( And I agree with you, looks so much more effective with a curl!
