#ombre

As you might know, I’m either extremely early or extremely late to the party. This time it seems like I’m late, about four or five years late.
I’m a pretty impulsive person and about two weeks ago I decided one morning when I woke up that I was gonna change my hair, that day. And I know myself well enough to know that my impulsive decisions often are the ones I’m the most satisfied with.

So this is how I did it; (please keep in mind that I am NOT a professional in any way and that this might be the worst thing that you could do to your hair)

I started off with teasing my hair until there were only small pieces of ‘loose’ hair hanging around and it felt like I had a hat on my head with all of the teased hair close to my scalp. This way there will be different length of the hair when it’s time for the bleach and it will look more natural since there won’t be an abrupt stop to the lighter parts.
After I had mixed the bleach I had to tease my hair again, since it apparently didn’t want to look like a birds nest (I do appreciate my hair doing this but this was not a good time for it to be messing with me) and I started to apply the bleach unto the tips of my hair, waited ten minutes and then applied bleach again, but this time not only the tips but also a couple of centimeters up, creating sections and waiting ten minutes between every section. I think I had about four or five sections, I can’t really remember but since I have such short hair I was worried that it was just gonna look ridiculous. And i you have a longer hair I would suggest you buying two packets of bleach instead of one. (also, if your hair is really dark)
After waiting for about 50 minutes I washed the bleach out, continuing to take a shower, since my hair was a complete mess and I needed to sort it out.
As I helper to that, I used a lot of conditioner and tried not to comb it out with a brush but with my fingers solely. It’s been damaged enough in under an hour.

This is how it looked when I got out of the shower and blow-dried it;

As you might see, it’s really damaged and I wouldn’t recommend you to do this if you’re not willing to sacrifice the quality of your hair. Still I think the result was really good, since I wasn’t completely sure what I was doing.

I’m satisfied, for now.

  1. I did a balayage a few months ago and I’ve been loving it, no need to dye my roots every few weeks now! But the ombre looks amazing on you! And wow, you did this all by yourself? It looks so professionally done, good job! 😀

    1. I know right? It’s one less problem to worry about! It is such a drag to have to dye the roots every now and then but with this, no need to and it looks fabulous anyway!
      Yeah, I can say it took some guts and I was nervous the whole time, thinking that I would have to go to the salon the first thing in the morning but it turned out really good!
      Thank you! 😀

      1. For sure! I got so tired of visiting the salon so often, and it gets so expensive too! I would have been nervous too and I definitely would have had to go to the salon the day after if I did it myself but you really did do an awesome job! 😀

      2. Oh, that must be why! I have a few years of damage on my hair and I have so much hair, I had trouble just dying my hair a full colour haha. Didn’t realise how patchy and uneven it was until I got a trim. 😛

    1. I tend to do that actually! As soon as I have a little blonde in my hair I colour it in any crazy color. This time though, it’s a little to yellow for it to be nice, but maybe if I go even blonder it could work!
