Ready for Summer With My Ombre Highlights!

This past Saturday, I had decided to take the plunge and go lighter. I wanted to be summer ready and got my ombre highlights. I'm officially a quarter blonde.


See after the jump for more pictures!




with Kim Siojo, the hair stylist behind my awesome Ombre highlights

I was a little worried the getting Ombre highlights might be a little too "wild" for me, but I really liked how it turned out! Kim did an awesome job making it look as natural as possible. I told her that I didn't want my tips to be too yellow or orange and had expressed my concerns of my fear of frying up (after a manic episode after a salon visit with a different stylist). She was very attentive and examined my hair carefully. She told me what she's going to do first before proceeding. I love how she styled my hair that day too! I wish I can keep her with me to do my hair all the time. In the end... my tips are dusty blonde/caramel color which is what I had in mind. Even my mom really liked it, and she's kinda hard to please when it comes to my choice of hairstyles.

I looove my new hair! It definitely brightens up my face much more. And it's a great change from my normal black hair.

  2. Oooh! I like the way your hair turned out! I've seen a lot of bloggers out there getting ombre, but I think the 1/4 blonde really works on dark hair the best! It looks GREAT!
