Confession : I’m not the most adventurous when it comes to my hair color. Aside from the occasional wash-out color worn in high school and a highlight job done by Jennifer Aniston’s hairdresser when the whole “Rachel” ‘do was popular, my mane has been pretty much tame.
I have recently become obsessed with hair color. I’ve decided I want to go for it in a big way. What perchance could have changed my view? The Ombre Hair Color Trend. I originally saw this on The Sartorialist at one of the Paris shows. She was a toehead with ombre accents of electric blue. It changed my world. Recently, it was featured on whowhatweardaily. This hair trend normally fades from dark to light. Occasionally this looks good. Most often it looks like what it is, a root grow out. I finally resolved to what I believe to be true. Little blondies can pull this look off better. *sigh*
On a trip down to Houston a girlfriend of mine was rocking the Ombre Hair trend, *ahem* my brunette friend. And it looked good, really good. The extra long locks really emphasized the tonal change. And today, I have hope for my ombre future.
