I gave my hair an update - a bit of Ombre!

Remember how in this post I was talking about hairdye inspiration? 
Well, last week I totally did it! 

I tried to get a good picture of it, but it's kind of hard to see.  It looks GREAT in bright sunlight 'cause you can see the contrast between light and dark.  And I love the way it looks when I put my hair up in a quick messy bun, with all the little light ends sticking out!

The word "ombre" has been thrown around on Pinterest a lot lately, and I'm just catching on.  It's basically when one (usually darker) color fades into a lighter color - and usually refers to haircolor.

Well, according to Cosmopolitan magazine, this style is already on it's way out.  Although, when have I ever listened to Cosmopolitan? 

I know my ends look a bit split right now, but I'm conditioning the heck out of them to get their shine back.  I just used Feria bleach-blonding kit, and saturated the ends.  Yes, this is how light my hair gets with bleaching - it's pretty darn dark!

I think I'm going to do another session when my hear gets a little stronger.  Right now, I really like how subtle this is.  And I don't want to totally fry my hair just yet. ;)
