How To: Ombre Hair Tutorial!!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011






Don't bust my chops for it being so subtle ;) This is how I wanted it, I just wanted to show you guys how to achieve the look..... obviously if you want more extreme you can leave it on longer :)

I USED:

Paul Mitchell Dual Purpose Lightener (powder bleach)
20 Volume Cream Developer
Mixing Wisk
Bowl
Tint Brush
Foil
Iso Wide Tooth Comb
Cape (nobody wants to ruin their clothes)
Gloves

The darker your hair naturally, the longer you will have to leave the lightener (bleach) on for. I recommend if your hair is a medium brown or lighter using 20 volume developer..... any darker and you will probably have to use 30. You will have to leave it on anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the result you want and how dark your hair is that you are putting it over ;)

I always recommend going to a stylist to get your hair colored but I understand not everyone can afford it..... so if you can't afford to go to a stylist, then I hope this helps :) I'm sure there are many ways to do this hair color, this is just how I find it the easiest :)

Thanks so much for reading/watching!!

As you can see the BB Cream does look a little lighter with flash but it does have SPF 25 so that is probably why. It does have great coverage though and looks really beautiful on the skin...... the color I have is No.21 which is a tad on the pink side so maybe one with a little more yellow would be better for me :) But so far I really like it! Thanks Amber!!!

All of the products I used are Physicians Formula, so you should be able to find them at your local Walmart, CVS or local drugstore depending on where you live ;) So they are budget friendly too ;)

FACE:

EYES:
Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner for Blue Eyes (champagne, peachy color and dark brown)

LIPS:


How do you like our crooked picture in the back??? HAHA 


Get ready for some plumped up lips ;) These ar with flash too, so you can see the foundation photographs nicely, even though it has spf :)


I did a little woopsie doodle here :) But that's ok!!



Yay for longer lashes :)



Headband is from Charming Charlies! Isn't it cute? My lovely friend Katie sent it to me ;) THANKS KATIE!!! xx


Thanks so much for watching/reading and I hope you have a LUSCIOUS day :)
