Hair Inspiration: 6 Ombre Looks
I don't know about you, but I absolutely love ombre hair and I've wanted it for the longest time. I've been way too afraid because of the damage it would do to my hair though! I have bleached my hair twice before but it was only small parts (let's not talk about the blonde streaks I had when i was 14) and I didn't really notice much damage to it but that was only small parts and I didn't bleach it that many times. It also wasn't exactly blonde any of those times, but more of an orange. So ombre has scared me! But there are so many celebrities I see with it and every time I see pictures of them I'm filled with a need to ombre my own hair.
Two of my favourites and Kylie Jenner and Vanessa Hudgens. They show that ombre hair can look good whatever your length. Kylie's looks so good and I am forever envious of her hair, makeup, clothing, life, everything! The volume and texture of her hair always looks perfect. She's cut her hair even shorter lately and has dyed those blonde tips a greeny-blue colour, something I've been wanting to try too but perhaps with purple or pink. Vanessa Hudgens is the person I'd go into the salon and say 'do this to my hair, please'. I doubt it would turn out that way, but I can hope! I like how high up it starts and how light it is. I think I'd have to invest in a silver shampoo if I wanted to replicate this look. The picture is from Coachella, where she always seems to look amazing, and ever since I saw it I've wanted her hair.
Lea Michelle and Drew Barrymore both pull it off amazingly as well. Lea always seems to have amazing shine to her hair and has more glamorous locks and she's opted for a more subtle look. I think that the subtle look is amazing as well and is perfect if you're looking for something more natural. Drew's are quite different since her hair is much lighter at the bottom. The messiness of her hair looks like she's fresh out of the ocean which I adore and she pulls it off so well.
Hilary Duff and Ashlee Simpson have also had ombre hair in the past. I love Hilary's look because it's a really gradual and natural change, similar to Lea's, except hers looks a little less orangey which I think is why I prefer it. Plus, her curls are a lot less uniform than lea's which I like more. I chose Ashlee's because of her very dark roots and light tips. I feel like if I decided to ombre my hair it would end up looking more like hers than Vanessa's just because I'd be too afraid to bleach it 83 times.
So which look do you like best? And do you have any tips for bleaching / ombreing (that's definitely not a word) hair? Is it a bad idea on very dark brown hair?
