Please excuse the strange expression on my face! Here's what I wore on my way out to take the plunge and buy the hair colourant to do the Ombre effect on my hair. It's something I've been contemplating for a couple of months but I knew it was something I would have to do myself as I'm not prepared to pay god-only-knows how much at the salon. The process started on Tuesday evening. I prepped/tested the ombré effect with a light brown hair colourant. It didn't do much but made the gradient slightly lighter. I took a risk and bought the lightest ash blonde shade I could find this evening and I used half the mixture to lighten up a bit more. Again it's a little more lighter than my last attempt. I'm going to put the other half of the mixture on today and see how it goes- maybe even leave it on slightly longer. I really do not want to end up with orange tips so I'm being very cautious. It's also the first time I have dyed my hair in about 3 years so it feels quite sad saying au revoir to my own natural hair colour! Hopefully I will be able to debut an awesome DIY job in the next few days- fingers crossed!!
