Hey Dolls! As you all know I recently changed my hair color and went for an ombre look. I have never ventured into doing anything bold to my hair and always kept it a classic jet black and always swore by it too. But I always admired ombre hair and thought to myself if I was going to try something I would like to try that. So I went for it!
I'm going to explain all the stages I went through to achieve my final look.
At first I went to a hair salon and they did a horrible job. They had absolutely no idea what the hell ombre is (even the famed Nicolas salons didn't know when I called them). I went equip with photos and all I got was my hair 1 hour in bleach 40% peroxide. As time went by and I felt my hair go on fire I ended up with something no way near to what I wanted: half of my hair turned FUCKING ORANGE.
DAFUQ? This was NOT what I had in mind.
So I then went to a hairstylist friend of mine who fixed the problem and did an amazing job. I get countless comments on my ombre hair he is so damn talented!
First he bleached my hair with 20% peroxide to remove all the orange from my hair. Then another bleach again with 20% peroxide. If you have black hair and go right away to a 40% bleach your hair turns orange like what happened to me. You have to go gradually with a 20% bleach.
Of course with all the bleaching process my ends got burned and had to chop off some of my hair. My hair had gotten super long (waist/butt length) and I hadn't cut in almost a year so I didn't mind.
To finish off the whole process my hairdresser put a reflet dye to even out the ombre ends and to soften up my black hair from all the blue black dye.
And Voila! Ombre hair fixed and accomplished!
