DIY Ombre

6 Oct

After a failed experience at a Parisian hairdresser a decided that I would “ombre” my own hair.  It turned out to be really easy and it came out great!

What you need:

  • L’Oreal Perfect Blonde Highlighter Kit
  • Towel
1.  Follow the instructions on the highlighter kit and mix everything
2.  Put the towel around your shoulders, so the bleach/dye doesn’t get on you
3.  Part your hair into two sections
4.  Beginning at the ends work the dye into your hair, stopping where you want the ombre to begin
5.  Leave in for 15-20 minutes (don’t be afraid to leave it in, and if your worried it’s getting too blonde, you can just rinse it and try again)
6.  Wash out all the dye from your hair and blow dry it completely
7.  Apply the highlighter again, this time don’t go up as high
8.  Wash and dry
9.  One more time, this time really just get the ends
10.  Wash and dry, if you decide you want to go blonder try again, it’s not very precise and it may take longer depending on your hair type/color
So that’s all there is! It’s really easy and there isn’t too much risk cause if you end up not liking the way it turned out you can just cut it!
