Ombre Hair

I know the hype about ombre hair has died down and almost every other person you see about town has that harsh bleach line, i have decided to go ahead and try to achieve a more subtle graduated look with the Loreal Preference wild ombres kit.
I am planning on growing out my current hair colour and returning to my dark blonde roots as I am currently having to dye my hair every 4 weeks as any colour fades to a brassy yellow blonde with dark roots, which is really not cute. Also it was costing me £10 a time which I know is a lot less than the salon but still, soon I am going to have to begin saving for university and it is an expense I could do without.
I figured if my hair is ombred then when my root regrowth comes through it will just look like another graduation of colour... well that's what I'm hoping. Other than that I want something to add a bit of life and interest back into my very long hair and I like the beachy look.

I purchased the wild ombre kit in shade No3 which is made for blonde to dark blonde hair. There are a lot of bits to this kit, included are:

  • Instruction leaflet
  • Expert brush
  • Lightening powder
  • Developer creme and applicator
  • Lightening creme
  • Conditioning shampoo
  • Colourist gloves

This is the look I am hoping to achieve, bearing in mind I have never done this before so we will see how it turns out. I will post the results after it's dry!

    Lots of love, Maho
