You know how much I love to DIY any and everything.
And most of the time my little projects turn out well. But sometimes, eh. Not so good. Even downright horrendous.
Which brings me to my latest DIY disaster. . . Ombre hair.
I love anything ombre, even Kardashian-esque highlighted hair. And when I was quoted a price starting at $100 (starting at — which would most likely quickly reach the higher echelons of that price with my thick hair). My cheap self said, ‘Nothing doing.’
But the above result? Not quite what I was expecting. And after three days, it was back to normal, everyday reddish brown for me.
The moral of the story, other than, been there, done there, and moving on, is this: I will not be following a certain ombre kit’s instructions to the letter again.
