Talking Tresses | The Ombre Hair Colour Effect

I’ve wanted to try the ombre hair colour trend for quite a while, but I needed to decide on style, colour gradient, how much of hair would be ombre, and of course where would I get it done. Since I’ve had such wonderful experiences at the Angelo David Salon, they were my obvious choice for my visit. Many people mistake the ombre effect as having dark roots and lighter hair strands, but the word ombre is actually French for “to shade”, a gradient effect that subtly changes from roots to tips. I knew I wanted lighter on the bottom and hoped for a bit of a rose gold effect. Sadly on the day of my colour, I forgot the pale pink that I needed, so this posts only highlights the golden effects. Once again, my hair was put into the fabolous and talented hands of Ivy, and as you can see my the amazing results, she is amazing.

My natural hair color is black….and I mean black, so Ivy had to take my full head of hair down a few levels before we could start on the ombre. You may remember how dark my hair color was from my last visit to the Angelo David Salon during New York Fashion Week, but here’s a before picture on the day of colour:

The process was a long one because I am blessed with a lot of thick hair, and because of the leveling down. I spent most of the day looking like I was either trying to contact aliens or block the government with the amount of foil I had in my hair (it was hilarious), but a few glasses of wine took my mind off my “tin head”.

Apart from the fact that I forgot the pink, I love the results; so have several of my friends and a few strangers have stopped me to give compliments and ask questions on my experience. After a bit of a resting stage, I do plan on adding the pale pink. meanwhile, I am taking Ivy’s advice and keeping my hair moisturized and properly hydrated. Check out a few more photos of my new color from various angles:
