My Ombre Saga


Every once in a while we get tired of our hair. One day, I decided I want a little change. I was tired of old boring black hair. It has been more than 13 years since I had my last hair colored. I went to the internet for some information. I came across this. They call it "ombre"


I looked for the definition of ombre, making sure I knew what it meant. The online dictionary says,  
ombre is a French word referring in having colors or two tones that shade into each other. I was excited with the idea. I called the salon and inquired for price. The conversation ended with I had to go to the salon to check out the length of my hair.
I walked in to the salon and chatted with a stylist, showed her this picture. It seemed like she knew what she was saying so, compulsively, I said, "Let's do it!"
 I was a little bit apprehensive that something was wrong. After she was done with my hair, It looked like this...


She could tell I wasn't happy with the result, which I was. It did not look anything like in the picture. I am not a professional stylist but I could tell, there was no need to foil my hair. Now my dark black hair has streaks of blondish which made me look dirty. I was not aiming for Christina Aguilera 'dirrrty' look. I told my stylist it did not look close in the picture. It is not ombre! But she insisted it was. I was starting to get frustrated, but as a nice lady I was, I said it looks nice and I wanted to get out of there as quick as I could before I cry.

I posted my laments on my facebook. A friend who happened to be a friend who works in the same salon recognized me and overheard my conversation with my stylist. She saw the look on my face that I wasn't happy about it. Thank goodness she had me schedule an appointment to fix my hair for free!





I was soo happy after she was done with my hair. This is what I wanted in the first place!
And I was right. There was no need for foiling my hair and it supposed to cost less!

I would never want to trust my hair to a stranger again! I learned to stick to a recommended stylist! Her name is Kristen of Style America located along W Ina Rd Tucson AZ. She is awesome!

  3. Myric,
    I love your new hairstyle and the color! I was just telling myself that I wanted to cut my bangs, but they would never look as good as this. I have naturally curly hair hehehe. Have a blessed week.
