Hello Everyone! You may not know but 11 September is my Birthday. For many people is a day of sad memories from New York. For me it was a time of mixed thoughts. One one hand, I was happy to celebrate the day I was born in this beautiful world, on the other hand I was thinking about my family from other States and they fear of 11 September from NYC.
So like one week before Birthday I started thinking what should I wear this day, me – celebrating Birthday and in the same time having in mind the day in New York. I decided to wear black dress and classic red lips with creamy accesories as bag and shoes and the second outfit with casual bag and comfy shoes, because we went for a walkafter dinner.
I think black color is a good choice for both reasons I mentioned. I have spent a wonderful day in Morristown in a beautiful restaurant and tried new dishes. My favourite was sea food in cake! Absolutely lovely!
Coming back from blond to its darker shade has never been easier. How is it possible?
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:)
I look more natural, and I am satisfied. On Youtube I showed how to do it at home!
If you have any questions, I will answer with pleasure!
