I’m a hair stylist, so this is what I’d tell you if you were sitting in my chair. :)
With all of your layers, an ombre look might not be the best. Instead, I would go for a more subtle shift in color like balayage. Balayage is supposed to represent a subtle fade of color instead of the stark contrast that ombre hair gives. It’s supposed to look more natural. For colors, I’d almost do the underneath part a dark auburn or a brownish red and then for the top and layers, do a light chocolate brown with some dark blonde highlights throughout just the top.
That’s just my opinion though and I think ombre and balayage are two hair trends that will be here for a while so don’t worry about that. :)posted over 2 years ago
i love ombre, but your hair maybe too short :/
maybe wait a bit?if you still like the ombre style then, you should totally go for it!
Yes! If you buy a highlighting kit or bleaching kit at the store, you can do it yourself. I would use maybe a small toothbrush to apply the color. I know there are videos on youtube that show how to balayage.posted over 2 years ago
I love ombre hair! Balayage sounds cool too. I think you could do a happy medium between ombre and balayage. Choose a color that’s not too bright but not too natural. Maybe like a brighter red than barepeppermint is suggesting, but not Manic Panic-style red. That way you get the best of both worlds.
And I don’t think it really matters if you’re late with the trend. If you like it, do it. That’s my philosophy.posted over 2 years ago
you should go for it,
im thinking about getting my hair like that
but im not sure because i have curly hair, what do you think about that?
I think it’d look good, depends on what color you get but it should be fine

you should, it look better on curly hair . I read some were that it should be stylish curly to “hide” when the colors change, that way it does not look dip dye.

I’m going with the balayage on this one. I think I might try it for my own hair and I think it will be like red lips: it will stay forever in fashion <3posted about 2 years ago
I’ve seen ombre on hair much shorter than yours. It was pretty cool! Personally, I won’t recommend a DIY. Maybe get it done once professionally and then maintain it yourself depending on how light the colourist can lift the colour. I say don’t worry about the trend being over or on its way out, just have fun with it! xposted about 2 years ago
Yes! I think red ombre would look awesome with your hair, and plus, since you’re doing it in a different way, I don’t think it will look late or whatever. Besides, don’t worry if something is not a trend anymore, if you like it, wear it! :)posted about 2 years ago
Do it! I just did the ombre effect to my hair about a month ago. Late or not, I don’t care. I love it:)posted about 2 years ago
