My DIY Ombre Hair Experience

I'm sure everyone knows what ombre hair is by now, and if you don't, where have you been for the past couple years? Ombre hair is a graduation from dark to light, or light to dark, whichever floats your boat! The trend first became popular in 2010 and gradually lost it's appeal over the following year or so, but now, in spring/summer 2012, it is coming back! And it's not just hair, ombre make-up and clothing has become very popular lately too, and in my opinion I think it's great! So great that I thought I would embrace the trend and have a go at ombre-ing my hair!

I have bleached my hair in the past, but usually it was just highlights or all over, never had I ever tried to create a gradient effect. To be honest I was pretty scared! But it turned out great and I am super happy with it! The picture below is when I just did it (3weeks ago). I have been using purple shampoo ever since and the blonde has become a lot more blonde.

If you would like to see how I created the ombre effect in my hair, I filmed the whole process, so you can check out my video below.
