The Ombre’ Color Technique
Rich dark roots that fade into light brown to blonde ends. This dramatic look is very trendy right now in Hollywood and certainly for particular tastes. The big pro about this look is because roots are so dark the color maintenance is easy peasy.
Always a bold and daring cut but oh so stunning! Not for the faint of heart but amazing if you want to make a statement. Easy daily maintenance – just wash and go, but higher salon maintenance due to quick outgrowth of the style.
You don't have to have a crazy color technique or chop all your hair off to look amazing in 2011. My advice to you if you are looking to make a subtle change is to look at old photos of yourself through the years. When did you love your hair most and what did you like about it? When did you hate your hair most and what was it that drove you crazy? Answering these questions can help you make better educated decisions for color and cuts in your future. Talk to your stylist in depth about all your options. Consider all over base coloring to richen up dull tones, add highlights around your face to brighten up your look, or add a few lowlights if you are getting too blonde and washed out.
As far as getting a new haircut - you can change the shape of your cut without taking off length. Add shorter layers to add volume or make a goal to grow layers out for a sleeker look. Other changes to your cut could be to add some bangs, take two inches off at your next trim instead of one, or add layers just around the front of your face.
Hair is such a fun way to express yourself and your style so don't take your mop on top for granted. Make it the most it can be and choose 2011 to get inspired. I know I am!!!
Love, The Happy Hair Stylist
