Ombre hair – carbon black tips

Hello guys! Sorry for missing in action for so long, I’ve been away for Easter and felt like taking a break from pretty much everything! But I’m back and ready to face the hundreds of emails that have been piling up in my inbox this last week.

I received a tone of questions about my hair and the change I made recently. I guess I should start with that!

It was something spontaneous, I wanted a change, I had a voucher to this salon called Tribute and I went there with no expectations!

The surprise was that the place was actually amazing and the personal was super nice and welcoming. As a side note, all the guys working there were total eye candies and I’m talking top shelf eye candy :)))) – too bad I didn’t have my camera with me! Not important for the purpose of the visit, but enjoyable all the same. 

 
I told them I wanted a sort of an ombre effect but something shocking, a crazy color like dark blue or fuchsia. George Soare explained to me that would be very damaging for my hair because they would have to discolor my hair 7 or 8 shades down, besides it would have lasted a very short time so I went for carbon black instead. I think it looks great on my chestnut hair!

The only thing is I have to straighten my hair as they did at the salon for a full effect – if I sport my usual tousled hairdo it doesn’t really pop. I think the way you choose your hair straightener  is very important as I’m not very patient with this kind of things and so I need something very good and fast to achieve the same look at home in 5 minutes.

And yes, I do believe you can end up with a similar result at home, just don't do it by yourself, ask a friend to help you with the dye part at least!

Ooh, this is so rad!
I recently dyed my hair purple all over - I have a pixie cut, so the idea of destroying 2 inches of hair wasn't nearly as terrifying as if my hair were longer. :)
I've got a little giveaway going on over at my blog if you want to stop by!

Very cool! Those straighteners look pretty awesome too. That blue color would have been so pretty! But I totally get what they were saying & I'm glad they didn't do it & ruin your hair!

Thanks for following! :o)
