What started out as a trend that everybody thought would soon turn into a fad doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! … I think people love the Ombre look because, besides being very low maintenance, it allows people to play with colours while keeping the colour that’s most flattering for your complexion near your face! Although Ombre started out as a trend around two years ago, it is now starting to be seen as a more mainstream look as regular women all over the world (not just celebrities and trend setters) are embracing the look. According to Yahoo News “2013 is the year the ‘Ombre Hair Trend’ will become the definitive look, as more and more women try Decolour Ombre kits at home”. Personally, I am thrilled about this as I started out with a subtle Ombre look last year and I am no where close to wanting to retire the trend!
If you saw my previous post about my original move to my subtle Ombre look, you would know that I actually wanted it to be less subtle but didn’t want to go too light at once because of the damage factor that the bleaching can cause to the ends of the hair. So when I was back home in Canada recently, I decided to finally make my Ombre less subtle … And this is the result!
One of the things my hairdresser who I’ve been going to for over 10 years and I absolutely love told me (you can check out her facebook page here if you live in Toronto.) is that since the look has been around for a while and is more mainstream now, hair stylists are more likely to have perfected their technique … which means … better results for those of us who prefer to have it done at a salon!
