i was always told growing up that it was time for a trim once your ends got lighter than the rest of you hair. clearly...the person i listened to was wrong because this ombre look is all the rage. wish i wouldve known i couldve started this trend years back. (kidding) but to think that its currently the "it" hair trend makes me reminiscent of my teenage years. i cant wait to try this out once i go brunette again. i love my hair right now but its definitely hard to upkeep and not to mention, totally damaging the crap out of it!! i wouldve postponed going brunette a little while longer but being a bridesmaid, in coral dress, with red/orangy hair, in a week, would NOT be the business. ill post pictures after the end result. wish me luck!!!
