Ombre Hair Is Here to Stay! … And I Revamped Mine :)

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”.

With this technique I get the big bouncy loose waves while I’m blow-drying my hair and it just takes a couple of extra minutes to do!Smile
