5 Steps To Getting Ombre Hair At Home Without Stressing Your Strands

ombre_jordin

The ombre hair effect is no longer just a fad, rather it seems like this color method is here to stay in 2014. At least that’s what these hairstylists told us at the beginning of the year. Jordin Sparks, Beyonce and Ciara have all mastered the style while making it look effortlessly chic. Still, is the technique so advanced that fashionistas like you and I can’t try at home? Not at all. As the daughter of a master stylist, and a beauty school attendee myself, I’ve learned the ins and outs of the extraordinary and potentially tricky hair color processes.

Like most beauty treatments, DIY projects may not yield perfect professional results. Nevertheless, testing a new method at home could save your strands and your budget in the long run.

So while going ombre at home is something we can all do, it pays to be careful and avoid disaster. Therefore, before you bleach your tips and affix them with a hue as bright as the sun, grab some gloves, a color brush, and follow these tips for strong strands.

POSTLip bar

Everytime I get the opportunity, I always try to highlight some of my favorite products. Well, here’s one of them. The lip bar is an eloquent depiction of what every girl wants to wear, but few are bold enough to indulge in. With a color for every mood, the Lip Bar’s lipsticks are definitely  my most favorite guilty pleasures. To create the look above, I used Kamikaze (pictured above), and lined it with a MAC’s Atlantic Blue Eyeshadow. With the perfect small angle brush, any eyeshadow can be used as a liner for these lipsticks, which leave the lips feeling smooth and desireable, without the chalky hardness similiar to other matte finishes. Finally, one color application lasts most of the day, through 2-3 meals! I love it! Get yours today @ www.thelipbar.com.
