Ombre hair trend

Ombre hair has been a very popular trend for a couple of years now. But the thing is, I'm seeing more bad ombre dye jobs than good ones. I don't think most people are realizing exactly what ombre is and they are also attempting to do this at home on their own, with bad results.

Let's start off with the basic problem.

Ombre is not two different colors. Ombre is a blend of multiple colors from the darkest to lightest.

A lot of people dyeing their hair ombre style think all they do is just put bleach on the ends and that's it. It is NOT just a solid hair color on top with bleached ends. Ombre is supposed to start at your roots, with your natural hair color where it is darkest, and then start to gradually lighten until you are at the very ends where it is the lightest.

It should look natural. You know how the sun lightens your hair, and if you are growing it long and leave it natural, and not dyeing it that the ends will eventually be lighter than the rest of your hair? That's what it is supposed to look like, that you have effortlessly lighter ends from mother nature and your hair has just been growing out.

If you just have a solid line from bleaching your ends then it looks like you just have really bad roots that were never touched up. Try not to dye it too blonde, especially if your hair is naturally dark at the top.

Another problem is just with bleaching in general. If you don't know how to tone your hair, or didn't leave the bleach on long enough your hair will be orange and brassy. Having bright yellow or orange looking bleached ends is not a good look on anyone.

If you really want ombre hair, I recommend going to a professional. It can be pricey, but you don't want to ruin your hair at home, and then have to spend the money to try to fix it. Also, the great part about ombre hair is that you can just let it grow out, so you will not have to keep paying for touchups!
