After two years of cowardly toying with the idea of doing something different with my locks, last week I manned up and had them lopped off and ombréd. It’s still low-risk on the drastic scale, but I didn’t cry (pats self on back), and am throughly chuffed with the results. In fact if I could count all the reflective surfaces I have stopped by to fluff my new bonce up in, in the last week I’d need a lot of fingers. New hair, and having coloured hair for the first time is the perfect excuse to indulge in some new haircare products, right? Of course! So off I trotted to make a little order and set down to film a rambley video about my purchases and new hurr for you guys. Enjoy.

Select to watch on Youtube for all the extra info, product links and bumf and to see my initiation into the ombré crew. I’m proud to finally be a fully-fleged member.

    I totally know what you are talking about, I’m still too cowardly to do anything with my hair. I’ve been dying to get the ombre look but still am hesitating. Gosh, looking at your result I’m so tempted to go to the hairdresser! Love your blonde locks :-) xx

    Redken Anti Snap is incredible – BUT, make sure not to use it after every wash (this info from my professional hair stylist). The high amount of protein in the product can actually end up causing breakage if used too frequently.

    I usually stick to using it every other wash, and it works wonders. My naturally curled frizzy hair dries completely smooth and tame. I’ve been using Anti Snap for about a year and have definitely seen improvements in my ends as well. Enjoy!

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Thanks for the tip – will try not to use it too much now :)

    I love this look, I’m too scared to take the plunge though as my hair is auburn and I’ve never dyed it so if I got it done and didn’t like the colour I wouldn’t be able to dye it back!! It really suits you though :)

      Aw thank you! :)

    It’s gorgeous! Definitely another inch off would help lift your face — have you thought about lightening the tips a tiny bit more for more of a gradient?

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Ah thanks – yes I think a little extra needs to be lopped off to make the dip more even :)

      Ah thanks! :)

    I love this! I had a brief brunette to bright purple to pink ombre phase which was gorgeous but awful to maintain! I now have faint blond ombre left from the bleach that actually looks surprisingly nice :)

    looks amazing

    I think that looks great on you Anna, I think waiting until a new trend sweeps through is the perfect time to dye your hair. Rather than it being a trend, it is just a hair colour that suits you and looks good!

  • http://sweetlilyrose.blogspot.com/ Tessa D’haene

    It is really pretty on you!! Late or not, it looks great!

  • meghan mcgovern

    i just got ombre-ed as well gotta love being fashionably late <3

  • Lucie Herridge

    Welcome to the ombré crew!! I love mine and yours looks amazing!! x

  • Claudia

    Anna, you look stunning! paired with the white dress and your face makeup.. ahh so gorgeous :)

    I’ve made a few bad experiences with feelunique as well: one package got lost even though I chose ‘signed for delivery’, for another package I had to pay customs charges and their customer service is extremely unhelpful! that’s why I’m not ordering from their site anymore – despite the good offers, sighs.

  • Farhaa

    Looks gorgeous!!

  • http://twitter.com/nwgirlontheblog Kate

    Ombré certainly suits you!

  • becca.dynes

    This is exactly what I want for my hair. I’m considering showing this post to my hair dresser so she can fix my mop.
