I don’t stress myself out keeping up with the latest fashions and trends, especially with my hair.
I have always done the long straight hair thing. Last October, I chopped a good 12-13 inches off and had a cute short (short for me, just touching my shoulders) hair cut. I kept it up for about 9 months. But I got tired of having to get a cut every 6 weeks, and having to spend extra time styling it.
I used to do full color, but I quit doing that about 2 years ago, and would occasionally do a highlight when I found a groupon.
My last highlight was February.
I haven’t felt like spending the time and money to do it. So I didn’t. Whatever, you can see some roots, but spending the summer out in the sun helped that a bit too.
Last week I took the girls to get haircuts and the girl cutting their hair asked if I had my hair colored. I said yes, a while ago.
She said it looked like I had ombre coloring done. I had no clue what she was talking about and I wasn’t even sure I understood her correctly, because she has a thick accent.
I came home and forgot about it, until I saw a pin on pinterest about ombre hair.
So I googled it.
Apparently my laziness has put me up with the fashion world! It is the trend now to have your hair dark at the roots and gradually get lighter. Who knew?!
Awesome, I will hold off on a highlight til it is no longer in fashion, until then, I am going to pretend this is on purpose!
p.s. it is really hard to take a picture of yourself trying to show hair color with a cell phone.
