Yesterday , I have finally decided to get an ombre..after 2 months of thoughts and deliberation , i finally gathered my strength and go for it. I went to De Jolie Salon and i was taken care by Allyson . She is friendly, accomodating and just incredibly awesome. She has been doing a lot of ombre and obviously she did an awesome job on mine. She did exactly the way i want it. I want my ombre to have a subtle gradual shade from roots to tips.I want highlighted strands on the tips not the whole strands of the tips to be bleached.In ombre there is so many styles on how you want it as shown on the pictures i posted above.
Why do i love ombre :
1. its youthful , fun, fresh,unique and on trend
2. low maintenance, you dont have to worry of your roots growing..well to the fact that the whole purpose of the style is too look like you've grown your roots on purpose while retaining your highlights stylishly.
The only con about ombre is split ends. You gotta get your regular trims and do a hair mask atleast once a week. I do full color on fall/winter and highlights on spring/ summer...so i usually do that ritual on taking care of my hair anyway. Actually ombre is much better than full highlights because you only get to use bleach on the tips.Thats less chemicals you put in while still looking stylish and trendy. To maintain the shade, if you dont want the tips to be so light, you can ask your stylist to tone it.
So here it is , i hope you like it too :)
