I was a little nervous at first, but I felt comfortable right away and he really took the time to go over what I wanted. I asked him to keep me a brunette, give me a bit of a very subtle ombre look and also to not start any of my blonde highlights in my roots.
We decided to dye all of my roots with a demi-permanent color that's very close to my natura color (but slightly darker) and then drag that color though some pieces that were too blonde left over from previous dying.
Here I am when I first got there.
After the brown color was applied throughout all of my roots, Chuck used the same technique seasoned ombre pros use---he teased my hair and applied the blonde color only to the part left outside of the teased part. It looks a little scary, but it's awesome:
...and then your hair ends up looking like this:
But then, you leave the salon, like this:
(note the smile)
I am so thrilled to finally have my roots all one color and then lighter shades sweeping throughout the rest of my hair. Eventually, I think I'll be brave enough to do even more ombre throughout my ends, but for now, I am so thrilled with how it turned out. I atually really love how rich the brown looks. It's all soft and blended too, which is awesome.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend :)
