My New Summer Hair: Ombre Halo Highlights

 It was time for a hair change!
So may I present my new "lighten & brighten" for summer, hair color!
Don't get me wrong- I love my dark hair, but I have to admit the lighter hair looks "softer" or "gentler" huh?!?
And the best part about lightening your hair is you can always change it back!
I always liked the Ombre look..but thought I do an "Ombre Twist"...instead of just making it look like my roots had grown out or that I dipped the tips in bleach....I wanted to do an "Ombre Waterfall of Highlights" around my face!

It was so easy, super fast to do, and I did it all myself and now I'm gonna show you how I did it!
You could always step up the crazy color-ness and after you lighten the hair, dye it a fun color like red or turquoise


WHAT YOU NEED:
a glass or plastic bowl
a hair color brush or you could try to just use your fingers
plastic gloves
foil (you can pre-cut it into strips)
20 - 40 Volume Developer (20 for light hair or 30, or 40 for dark hair like mine is what you need to lift the color out)
Powder Hair Lightener (the off the scalp kind) -- you can buy this at any beauty supply
make sure you wear an old t-shirt in case you get any bleach on it...
(blow dryer- option to heat up the hair and speed up the lightening process)

And if you dont' feel like you can do this yourself...tell your hair stylist that you want sort of "Ombre highlighted pieces all around your face- to frame your face with highlights"...
Like a halo of highlights around your angelic little face!

Now let's watch as I show you how I did my hair....
and By The Way....I love it!!!!!
