My natural hair is long(ish) and blonde, and I have taken to letting my previously-coloured blonde hair grow out to obtain a natural "ombre" hair colour. For those of you who are not familiar with what the "ombre" hair-trend is, it "refers to hair color fading from dark to light, or vice versa. Instead of the color starting from the roots, it gradually becomes lighter, or darker, towards the ends. The word "ombre" in French means shadow or shade".
We can thank the late 80s-early 90s for this grunge-inspired look. Back when it was cool to "not care" about your hair, the punks and grungies of the time would just let their roots grow out from their previously coloured/bleached hair, resulting in a faded look. This style emerged from street-fashion and has been re-created today - and is oddly seen as quite stylish and glamourous and not just "punk and grunge".
My own ombre hair:
This is a blue dye that I purchased online from a company called "La Riche Directions". The colour is "Lagoon Blue".
This purple is a new favourite of mine, as it easily washes out with one wash - perfect for the girl who changes her hair like she changes her clothes.
Next up to try eventually, another "La Riche Directions" hair colour called "Dark Tulip" - I already have the dye, just waiting now for the mood to strike...
