Let’s face it, the ombre hair trend isn’t going anywhere for a while. It has gone from light beachy colors to now darker fall colors. Well, at least for me I see it going in that direction. I’ve tinkered with the idea of doing the ombre hair for a long time and finally I decided to do it. I made an appointment at a hair salon in Georgetown Washington D.C. and my husband cringed at the mere thought of the bill..lol. It’s Georgetown, it’s hair color, possibly a cut and it’s Georgetown. I also thought about the total mishaps that can happen at a salon and paying a ton of money for something you don’t like, so I said “You know what? Let’s try the D.I.Y ombre hair approach and see what happens.
This was going to be quite the experience so I asked my hubby *who is an angel and has the patience of saint* to document and be my styling assistant for the evening.
*Total side bar* To make sure dye doesn’t stick to your skin, I used vitamin E oil and applied it to the exposed skin before starting so it slips right off. Even around my face, neck and chest.
Hmmm we’ll just have to wait till tomorrow to see how my D.I.Y ombre hair experiment turns out.
