I Want Ombre Dip Dye Hair!

I have had a crush on ombre dip dye hair for so long now, but have always been much too scared to have it done. I don’t like dying my hair at the best of times. As it is, it’s currently my own natural colour with a few highlights from over a year ago. I wouldn’t change the root colour to make it darker though, what I always had planned in my head was to just lighten the ends of my hair to make them even blonder, so I would have a dark to light blonde ombre.

Those of you who read my blog will know how obsessed with ombre clothes I am, so having ombre hair would be something that I would love. I don’t have the patience to sit in the salon for hours while having it done, plus it would be very expensive, so I bought the L’Oreal Wild Ombre’s hair colour to do myself at home. I’ve read a lot of reviews on it and how easy it is and everyone loves the results, so I’m really excited to give that a go. Do you love the ombre hair trend? Do you think I should go for it?

      I would, I would put the dye on the tips first so it stayed on there longer, do you think I should go for it?

    Nice but it can damage ends of your hair. I’ve got ombre hair but it’s rest of blond stripes which I had before 2 years. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think it will look spectacular on you, Lorna.
    I’m in love with the idea of dipdye myself but I probably have to go for a subtle one, otherwise I’ll look a bit teenager-wannabe :). You being 25 can go more vivid and I know the UK has really good hairdressers so I’m he/she can advise you like the best

    • Lorna
      November 7, 2012 / 10:24 am

      Yeah I like it subtle as well, I don’t want it too bright or contrasted. I think my natural colour into a lighter blonde will be best for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lorna
      November 7, 2012 / 1:31 pm

      Oh yeah I am not sure how well it would work on red hair, it could go a funny colour!

  17. November 9, 2012 / 12:47 am

    Awwww I love that you used Lauren Conrad’s picture!!! I love her and she has the most beautiful hair =D

    Ombre hair would look great on you, would you post pictures afterwards? I would love to see them =)


    • Lorna
      November 9, 2012 / 2:18 am

      She does have amazing hair! I love it! Of course, when I do it to my hair I will definitely be posting photos, don’t worry about that! Assuming it goes right of course lol!

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
