I was always used to traditional baleyage, actually for many years! Dying hair every month took not only money for hair treatment, but time. Moreover, it required regularity in visiting hairdresser, who dyed them every time for a bit different blondshade, what made me confused and not always satisfied. Hairdye methods has changed a lot in last 3 years. Rarely we can see women with contrast “striped” hairdye of baleyage.

One day I fell in love with ombre and got inspired.

One sunny day I visited haidresser in Europe to try ombre. I was so excited to have super trendy hairdye so that I even took a picture with me of my favourite british model- Rosie Huntington. Unfortunately I came back home with chocolate brown hair with tears in eyes and retoric question”What did I do?!”. No vestige of blond.

So after some time and long hair treatment I desperately came back to platinium blond, because I didn’t trusted any hairdresser knows ombre technique so dying whole hair blond seem to be easier. I know, silly step, but prefered to be blond than brunette.

My hair were a bit destroyed, fortunately not extremly, I invested in Kerastase products, and it worked. Lucky me:) So, what happen later? Hair started to grow in healthy condition, but roots didn’t look good, what meant- you need to dye them again! My problem was- which way to go with my roots. Highlights or full cover.  I purchased Loreal hairdye cream, at the moment I even don’t remeber the exact number od shade. It worked. Roots covered.

The problem started to be more complicated. After two months my hair got yellow undertone. I didn’t like it anymore. I came to idea to learn ombre technique on Youtube and finally get rid of problem with roots. Most of films show how to brighten your hair, but I needed to do it on the contrary. From blond to dark blond. So I purchased ash light ash brown 6A of Loreal Excellence and covered 60 % of my hair. Blond ends I left and smoothed the contrast with a comb.

Down below you can see my very easy and affordable transformation. I still have some yellow undertone, the hairdye cream washed out a bit, but now I can do it on my own, and it is easy like ABC:)
