Inspiration- Ombre and Brightly Colored Hair











Brightly colored hairstyles are so much fun! They allow you to express your style in so many different ways. Today's inspiration comes from bright colors and the ombre technique. The first photograph is my favorite. I just adore the color palette, and if I were to dye my hair in an ombre style, I think those colors would be great. If I didn't use those colors, though, I would either try sea foam/teal or deep burgundy.
For anyone who is wondering 'What exactly is ombre?', it is actually a French word which means graduating or shading. It is a hair color technique in which the hair at the top of the head fades gradually into a different color, with no drastic transition line. What I like most about this style is that it looks really cool with almost any color combination. You can go wild, or keep it more natural. 
Would you try an ombre style? Or bright, vibrant colors? Or maybe both? 
I would love to hear your ideas!!

  8. Thank you for the follow! And I think so too. Hair like this is beautiful, but I would have to use semi-permanent dye so as not to keep bleaching it. xx
