ginger ombre

I've always wanted to dye my hair but something has always stopped me. At the last moment I'd get freaked out. Growing up, people told me it would ruin my hair, I'd never get my ginger back, I wouldn't suit it, the roots would look awful and my hair would turn green. GREEN. Because of this wealth of unasked for advice, it has taken me twenty-one years to finally do the unthinkable...

I decided to ombre my ginger hair with blonde on Thursday. Admittedly my hair could've taken more bleach but my hairdresser seemed scared about ruining my hair as it had never been dyed before. In some lights it isn't as noticeable as I would like but hey, start small, right? I will definitely ask them to keep the bleach on for longer next time (yes, next time!) but I am really happy with the results. To anyone out there who is scared to dye their hair but wants to, just ombre or dip-dye it. If you hate it it will grow out or, depending on how long your hair is, you can cut it off. Take a risk!

On a side note, please excuse the very fashionable washing line in the background and the wind that decided to intrude into my photos. I also decided to share what I'm wearing today. It's nothing exciting or overly special, just thought it was a nice simple outfit and perfect for a lazy day.

I absolutely love that colour! It looks... natural, actually. Ginger/honey shades really suit you and your skintone. I wish I could pull that off! xx

It looks lovely on you! It's very subtle and is great for summer. I'm toying with the idea of ombreing my hair too. I really hate going to the hairdressers and doing the awkward small talk though!
