It's like when you do some "meches" or "streaks" to your hair and then they grow fast before you can go back to your hairdresser (and that's ugly), but believe me it is really not a bad effect, it is amazing instead, 'cos it gives a sort of new light and shine to every hairstyle that is not totally straight (be careful, very straight hairs are not fair with this style!).
I think that the first person I remember when I think of "ombré hair" is our beloved Alexa Chung.
But how could we forget to mention the person who probably started this trend (or at least pushed it at its more extreme level), Lady Gaga?
And then in Topshop's 2011 S/S lookbook we clearly saw how ombré hair can be combined to dyed hair and the result is very strong and odd, but amazing. (If my hair were longer I definately would have tried this green version!)
And so many lovely bloggers talked about this so far:
LLY MLRS was one of the firsts to announce it last April, Hivennn is thinking about it, while Annebeth from The Styling Dutchman has decided to "go ombré hair" (and she is also talking about another blogger who has done it!) and Lula from Lulapalooza has already done an amazing work doing her ombré hair by herself!
Don't you feel inspired?
I regreat not having long hair so much right now!
