Ombre Obsession

Long hair, don’t care? – We feel the same way. Summer is the time for freedom. I know what you’re thinking, as you’re taking a study break in King to read this, “it’s no longer summer”. Trust me, I have also come to this unfortunate realization. However, can we take a minute to look on the brighter side and enjoy the remains of the warm weather while we still can? Why not take this time to be a little more carefree before the cold rolls in.

Many girls channel this warm weather and carefree attitude into a little bit of an edgy do. Don’t be afraid to take a little walk on the wild side and head over to your local beauty supply store to pick up some hair bleach and join the ombre trend.

Don’t bother spending lots of money at the hairdresser to achieve this hip look. You can get the same look at home with hair bleach and a dye brush…and a YouTube tutorial video.

It’s as easy as one, two, three: three simple steps.

  1. Part your hair down the middle and put it in low pigtails.
  2. Use the dye brush to apply bleach from the tips to about two inches up. Wait ten minutes and do the same thing from the point you just dyed up two inches. Wait ten more minutes and repeat the process one more time, two more inches up.

  1. After ten more minutes have passed wash the bleach out with shampoo and water and admire your new look in the mirror.
