DIY: Ombre Highlights!

I’m turning 36 in a couple weeks. Over the weekend we had some family members over for dinner, and one of these said family members pointed out how grey I am. He said “Wow, I didn’t realize how grey you are!!” Thanks. Thankyouverymuch. I am grey. Like grey, grey. I know I have more grey than any of my peers, but I try to keep it hidden with monthly root touch-ups.

So anyway, on my monthly trip to Sally’s yesterday, I was standing in the dye aisle, and was looking at all the colors – wondering if I should try something different. I mean, it’s practically my birthday, right? Something new? I’m officially closer to 40 than I am to 30. Not depressing at all, right? I need something fresh, something exciting. I didn’t want to make an appointment, and wait weeks to get in, and drop $100+ on highlights. So I thought to myself…… why can’t I try doing it myself?

I asked the Sally’s employee what I should buy, and he picked out all the products I would need to do ombre highlights myself. I came home and watched 100 You Tube videos on the process, and found that everyone pretty much does it differently. So what you’ll see here is my unpolished, unprofessional and mighty easy way to get ombre highlights yourself.

I know what I’m getting you for Christmas!

The Air Curler, because you’re worth it!

Believe it or not this gem is an actual product that you can really buy, if you’re dumb enough to believe this choppy commercial. All you have to do is put your straight hair inside the Air Curler – and voila! Curly hair! Except, notice how in every scene where the hair comes out perfectly curled – the commercial has been edited? Of course there are scenes of girls pulling their hair out of the curler, and it LOOKS curled, but it’s obviously just twisted by the wind, and one run of your fingers through the hair would put it all back where it started.

I feel like someone should call the Better Business Bureau. This is horse caca.
