ombré, round two (+ a giveaway)

so, remember a couple weeks ago when i went ombré? well, i decided it wasn’t quite dramatic enough. so, i had my sister touch it up and get a little creative with it. just so happens, i love it. i’ve always been a little bit more adventurous with my hair and style than Kate, but she finally admitted to me that she wishes she had my hair. consider my world rocked.

p.s. she used a 1 1/4 inch curling iron to style it

today’s giveaway comes from nicholl of the chiffon diary. she has great personal style and a super cute pup (we all know i’m a sucker for animals). so, check out her blog and then enter to win a $15 target gift card a month’s worth of advertising on her blog!

    I ombred my own hair a year ago and the light ends are still there! Yours looks great and it will last for a long time (unless you cut it!)

    • I was wondering if I ombre'd my hair if I'd like it a little later down the road or if it would look weird if I kept it ombre'd yet let it grow out, thanks! 🙂

  12. Oooooh! Yes! I like this even more. However, I know you'll probably give me a funny look of disapproval for saying this, but I really want to see you with deep brown or chestnut hair! (Like the darkest color in your blog profile picture.) I love brunettes with blue, green, or hazel eyes! But really? What am I talking about? You're beautiful blonde, brunette, ginger, and probably even purple.

    GET OUTTA TOWN.

    I've been using a 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron lately and I need a tutorial! 🙂 Also, wondering if you or your sister have any tips for dealing with static electricity in hair. I'm just starting to have to deal with it!

    What colors did Kate use on your hair? Is the top your natural hair color or a caramel color and what color did she tip the ends with? I have been looking at ombre for a while and couldn't decide on the colors I wanted. These are perfect. Great Job Kate!

      not sure what she used on top, but it's very close to my natural. she just used a level 30 lightener for the highlight on the tips!

    your hair looks amazing! how long will you be keeping it this way? i used to have 3 large panels underneath my crown blondish (my hair is darker then yours) and i loved it, but changed it after a couple of years.
