Have you seen the new trend of ombre hair? You might also know it as two-toned hair. I’m all for hair trends that allow me to be lazy and not spend money on getting my hair dyed, but I can’t say that I’m on board with this trend.
And, to be honest, it seems like more work to get it started than a normal dye job. Do you dye the top of your hair dark and the bottom light? Because from what I remember, these ladies didn’t grow out their roots for a long time.
It also reminds me of a time in my life, we’ll call it sophomore year of high school. For some reason I thought having red, chunky highlights was a good look. I also thought that said red chunky highlights could be achieved in my own bedroom. You might guess that this didn’t go well, and I had what my high school english teacher so lovingly called as “fried cheese on my head.” Actually, her exact words (in front of the entire class) were, “My goodness child, what have you done to your hair? It looks like you fried cheese on your head.” Anyway, my mom made me an appointment at a salon to fix it and it was “fixed” in that it was what I asked for, but sadly what I asked for was a terrible idea. Sorry, I have no pictures of this time to share with you. At least not electronically.
But, I have seen this trend done on one person that I actually like.
Subtle, and done years ago ahead of the current trend.
So what do you think? Are you a fan of ombre hair?
