Hive, I don’t think I’ve shared with you my obsession with all things ombre. I positively adore this trend! The way the colors gradually change from a bold shade to a delicate and much lighter hue is a thing of pure beauty! Ombre details can be found everywhere and on everything from clothes to nails (and even weddings accents!).

Another place you can find the ombre look? On the head of a trendy girls! Yes, I’m talking about ombre hair! I cannot get enough of this look! It is the perfect sun-kissed hair (dark roots that gradually change into golden locks). It appears so natural and effortless…especially when paired with loose waves or cascading curls!

I have brown hair, but in the sun it turns a golden shade. Since moving to New England, I don’t make it outdoors as much as I would like, so my hair isn’t the color it could be. That’s why I’m so drawn to ombre highlights…they look so natural (like how my hair would look if I spent my days basking in the sun). I’ve been lusting over this trend for several months now. I had wanted to do it before our engagement shoot, but then I went and broke my foot and couldn’t drive (or walk really) and decided to put it off until I was healed. Well, I’m healed (not fully…I still have a giant air cast on my foot, but I can actually walk now). The thing is, now I’m hesitant. Do you think this look is too trendy? I don’t want my hair color to look unnatural for the wedding in October (even though I do intend to wear it up). Do you think it will grow in naturally or will I look like I haven’t highlighted my hair in months?


I’d love any advice!

    I prefer what my hairstylist BFF does to her hair. Although it is two very bold colors, it looks beautiful on her. Obviously, I don’t recommend the colors she uses, but maybe the idea would work. She has the underside layers of her hair dyed pitch black and the topside layers a bold, magenta-y red. When she does updos, it looks sooooo beautiful! Sometimes she can even do a basket weave effect that I envy. I’d suggest you get your hairstylist’s opinioin about trying that with more natural colors but far enough shade-wise from each other to notice the difference. :)
