Beauty Boo-Boo: Ombre Hair

I am SO sick of seeing the whole "ombre hair trend" all over the place.

The idea is that you actually go to a hair salon and ask for a darker color closer to your roots, and a lighter color near the ends.

Am I crazy, or is that a complete waste of a hair appointment??!

The result is just looking like you haven't had your hair done in forever and your roots are coming in.  Not attractive.  Especially when it's as drastic as brown and blonde.

This basically screams to the world, "oh I haven’t been to a hairstylist in 4 months".  It’s messy, not esthetically pleasing, and looks lazy.

Another thing to keep in mind: Changing your hair color is a fun thing to do, but remember it’s also damaging to your hair. The most fragile part of our hair is the ends, so just bleaching the ends to achieve this ombre look is not only silly in the long-run, but probably not the best for your hair in the short-run.


I absolutely hate when ridiculous trends like this take center stage. The worst part is that people pay a ton of money to look like this, when really, you can do it for free!! Just grow your hair out!

A stupid trend like this isn't bound to last very long.  But for every person I see sporting the look, I will die a little bit inside.

A closing thought? Being fashionable is not about mindlessly following every trend that comes out. It’s being able to differentiate the difference between the good trends and the bad trends.

That is all.
