Ombré Hair

Hellooo! I just got back from my trip to Florida to visit my family. A nice little break from the thunderstorm weather of DC. I'll post photos soon of my family, their cool houses, and all of their doggies!

A lot of you have been asking about my new ombré hair and I'm excited to share it! Before, it was just getting too long and boring... I haven't had it cut for almost a year. So why not bleach my ends? I bought a box of bleach from CVS, divided my hair into pigtails, and used a fat toothbrush to spread it all on. I ended up leaving it on for about almost two hours. I liked it how it looked when I was done but it was too yellowy and stringy at the end so I went and got my haircut and toned. Now it's sort of hard to see the blonde but it looks less harsh. I might even end up bleaching the ends again... What do you think??

During:

I love how you've done this. It looks wondefully mixed into the other colours, unlike some of the more grungier takes on ombre out there.

Lots of love from Sydney,
