View Full Version : Cut and Ombre!

September 7th, 2014, 12:56 PM
I posted another thread about cutting my hair while recuperating from a pretty big shed. It had gotten pretty thin comparatively especially the ends. I trimmed about an inch at the end of June and it had pretty much grown back at this point but still wasn't looking any better. I had also been considering an ombre hair color for a while an finally just went for it since my hair was already pretty light. It took my about 3 times to get it the shade I wanted (I did a low volume developer, very little time on the hair and lots of coconut oil!) Very little damage was done so that was successful. I also dyed the top part of my hair a beautiful light golden brown. It's hard to see the true color in these pics but anyway....

I was getting sick and tired of not being able to wear my hair down because the ends were just so thin and whispy. It wasn't a hard decision to make in the end and although I miss my length I know it will be back and look better in a few short months! It's at BSL now and looks great AND for the first time in forever, it's all (just about) the same length!!! All the short damaged/broken layers have caught up....The front is just an inch or so shorter which was my grown out bangs. Pretty amazing thinking about that. So there are some positives.

Now grow hair GROW!! :)


And After.....
