ombre

Wednesday, March 2

Photobucket
Turns out. I don't have what it takes to be a blond. Namely - being at the salon every three weeks to prevent those terrific trailer-trashified roots we all know and love. I have loved the Ombre look for FOR.EVER. My first word was Ombre believe it or not. {Just because my mom denies it doesn't mean it's not true} But whenever I've requested this look at different salons in the area, I've never found anyone willing to do it for me. UNTIL I found Kayleigh. And when I find a gem, I have to share. Rules of gem-finding, duh. So here ye, here ye - LADIES OF REXBURG. Run your little roots right over to this chica. She will do you right. Plus she's adorable. Plus she's affordable. Plus she has great hair. Plus we're friends now. Plus you don't need any more pluses. That's plenty.

And because I love you {and your locks} here's her numba: 208-740-1018. She works at Radiance.

Peace Out. I'm off to twizzle my hair and celebrate kicking my test's tushie this morning.

I have been dying to get the ombre look forever myself. Looks great!

Lindsey Rhodes said...

You make me want to EXPERIMENT with the same ol' same ol' hair do I've had since high school.

You give me strength. Keep it coming though- I'm stubborn and need more pushing!

Law Mama said...

I'm thinking of trying an ombre look out myself. Yours looks so cute!

Btw: I'm Taylor. Love your blog!

Erica said...

Looks fantastic! I love the ombre look! I sorta have a not-nearly-as-awesome ombre look, but that's just because I'm too lazy to get my hurr did.

So ... here's the thing. My name is Kayley. I am a hair stylist. And my hair is ombre-esque. I think this post might actually be kind of about me and you didn't know it. ;)

I love the look on you - super cute with your bangs!

The Lee Life said...

Can you please let me know how you style your bangs. I have had my blunt cut bangs for a while and unless I go to the salon everyday, I can never style them to look how I like. I love yours everyday! Help!

Miss Priss Morgan said...

JEALOUS! I'm normally blond, and I wanted this look for over a year. I was so excited when I found someone who would do it... Only it didn't work, I just ended up with brown hair... I DO NOT myself with brown hair.

Will and Kara said...

She does my eyebrows :) she's a cutie :)

rebecca said...

i wish i was brave enough to let a hairstylist recreate ombre hair for me. but alas, i do not trust many people (too many freak accidents). so i'm going the au natural way and letting it grow..and i have a long way to go. i'm jealous of your instant ombre. looks great!

Olivia said...

I managed to do the ombre look myself- it's REALLY low maintenance, and all it takes is literally slapping some bleach on the ends of your hair!
My hair is really dark brown, and it looks great. Anyone wondering if they should jump on the bandwagon - do it!!

Gaby said...

Your hair looks great, although I'm not sure I understand this whole "Ombre" thing. Oh, and congrats on acing your test!

Elaine said...

Love it! I've been wanting to try it out but I've never colored my hair.

La Petite Olga said...

Your hair looks great here!! I been thinking about the ombre look for a while I think I'm going to try it out.

AMAZING.
you look AMAZING.

Chris loves Julia said...

I am not totally convinced with the angle and lighting of this picture. The contrast seems drastic! I do love me some natural looking ombre. I posted a penelope cruz inspiration pic on my blog last week. Ombre will be mine in a few short days.

Farm Girl Fashionista said...

Great minds think alike!! I went blonde a few months ago and I hate it! Promised my hubs that I would keep for Vegas (we just returned) and my appt. to do OMBRE is March 25th!! I've been carrying a photo of LC so I hope my hairstylist can do it!! You look B-E-A-UTIFUL!!! =)

O O N A said...

pret-tay! love it (: so is ombre the same as melting? (um, obviously i don't know because i'm foreign. not because i'm completely out of anything fashionable and cool...)

Erin and Caroline said...

I have never heard of this style before (I don't know much about hair..haha) but it looks great on you! It's fun to experiment, especially with hair, because it can always grow back! =)=)

kelseywilliams said...

I love ombre hair! Ahh, you just keep getting more amazing every single day. :)

Stephanie said...

looks great! and as another former blonde with too quick roots, cannot tell you how freeing it is to NOW color my hair when i feel like it, not because i have to/need to.

Job and Rachael said...

Looks great! Not gonna lie, some people's ombre just ends up looking like some super bad roots going on, but yours looks amazing. Kudos to Kayleigh :)

Alejandra said...

omg Mrs. P check out my blog. I too am in love with Ombre hair. I had my fried do it on me but she didn't color my base (my dark dark that already had some redish highlights) over and just added highlights to the bottom half of my hair. so, last week i took a box of color and dyed my hair dark just on top of my head lol. that added more contrast and now im satisfied. Check me out: http://apearlintheworld.blogspot.com it's subtle but i need subtle. I havent done blonde in my hair for a while but plan on lightening up by the summer.

ANYWAYS you look sooooo chic! i love it sydney honestly! so hot!

Meg Conner said...

I'm a hairstylist and I LOVE ombre hair color. I have a version of it right now. So funky but still classy. You look great!

Andrea said...

Pretty! I love this look, but it definetely takes a stylish lady (ie. you) to pull it off.

CAROL H. said...

AMAZING! that ombre style hair looks great in you... now following! I really like you blog.

lady lyles said...

I dyed my hair for the first time this past fall, and i took the plunge for ..... the OMBRE. i dont normally post links, scouts honor, but here's what mine looked like: http://laurenlyles.blogspot.com/2011/01/hey-remember-that-time.html

you want to see it, dont you? mmmhmmm. :) it is SUCH a fun hairstyle, but alas, i might not have enough fun to be a blonde. right now, in gingerlust, i've dyed my hair for the second time... so now, i basically have an auburn ombre. not bad, i must say. i don't know why i felt compelled to share so much about two toned hair, but... it looks great! hair love <3

Sandy a la Mode said...

love your new look girl!! hot hot hot!!

Haley said...

Love the solid dark bangs! I have ombre'd hair. Except I went lighter on my ends and not any darker on the roots. I did it myself, beauty school pays :]

Rose said...

Oh. My goodness. Can I be honest? Really really honest? You look ten times more like you now. There. I said it. Not that all blonde Sydney wasn't a total cutie-pie, but she WAS a wee bit washed out.

Lovely to see you back to your bombshell self!

Tina said...

Ooooh looks great. I too was blonde for a while and let my roots grow til it looks putrid. I then died it your new colour which is just a little darker than my natural colour and since it has faded, my old blonde is peaking through making a naturalish ombre look. BIG FAN!

So apparently everyone in the world except me and two others on here knows what this ombre look is. I have never ever heard of it! I am googling it right now and getting in the loop here.
Whatever it is, it looks good on you my dear.

Ashley said...

I literally just finished a blog post for friday titled "ombre" about how i want to try ombre on my hair. yours is awesome!!!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

super cute! love this look.

debating on rocking the bangs look. i did it a couple of summers ago - just hated how long it took for my hair to grow back...but this girl, is inspiring!

Rachael said...

Hey! That looks fantastic! I never knew the word 'ombre' before (or the style for that matter). Good luck on your test!

Flora said...

You look beautiful! I have ombre hair too but at first it was a nightmare, as you I couldn't find someone willing to do it and when I finally did, he did such a horrible job I wanted to cry. Fortunately, I found later another hairstylist who knew what he was doing and could fix it (thank god!) but still keeping the effect. Now I'm thinking of darken it as fall is coming here and it looks more like a spring/summer look to me. xoxo

Dawn said...

i knew about ombre in the art and fashion world but never knew til now it applied to hair. it looks great but i want more pics :) i have mid ombre hair but it's more because i haven't done my roots in 7 months lol when i got my bangs cut my friend was like- they are a different color than your hair- how retro. i said, it's not on purpose. it's just cause i'm lazy and broke because we are adopting. it looks great and intentional on you!

gorgeous!

Rachael said...

I've never heard of the Ombre look before.
But it looks good! Although I think it's the color combo that works. If it was like, really blonde and then black...not so much. Or maybe it doesn't matter the colors?

Anna said...

I love the ombre look since i saw my bff rachel bilson rocking it. but since i have never ever dyed my tresses I try to talk all my friends into the look!

a tree and a hug said...

love the new hair! super cute.

i also wanted to tell you how much i appreciate the way you express your love & respect for your husband on your blog. you are always complimenting him or commenting on how wonderful your marriage is; i think it's so great. you've inspired me to work on complimenting my husband more, especially since his love language is words of affirmation!

thanks for having such a genuine & awesome blog!

Jenae @ Wildflower said...

OH my GOSH!! I love the Ombre look on you! you are so gorgeous, inside and out! just needed to tell ya that!

I love ombre hair and bangs too! wow, yours turned out fab :) Wish I lived close to your new best friend!
love, live & wear

Chelsea said...

I've never seen ombre look cute with bangs. UNTIL today. My bangs might want to copy your bangs.

Love your hair! We also LOVE Kayleigh, she cuts our whole family's hair! Love your blog!!!:)

Funny thing my comment was deleted. Looks like you got the hair done for free then! All I said was she messed up my hair, just sharing my opinion. I wouldn't go back to her.
