I've been wearing my hair the same length, and basically the same style for about....oh, four years, maybe?
And I am ready for a change.
Growing it a bit longer, and struggling through the gawd-awful transission stage is hard enough, but now, it seems that everyone is doing the ombre' thing, color-wise, instead of highlights. (Ombre': the look of color graduation, from darker at the roots, to a gradual lightening at and finally lightest at the ends....)
I am not sure what my take is on this look. I am puzzled by it. (See the photo above? I adore the cut...the loose curls...the ombre' color job? No, thank you.) I know it's wildly popular, but it seems to make hair look damaged, and...well, neglected to me, like you got it lightened last summer and then decided it was a bad idea.
I mean, is it just me, or does it look like you have just been growing out a lighter color, and forgot to go get it touched up? Have I reached "that" age, where I do not "get" what is hip?
To mis-quote the legendary M.C. Hammer, I'm just not jiggy with it.
I'm now going to date myself even further when I tell you that I while want to be fashionable, I am frankly more than a little worried that we are all gonna look back on this onbre' look very much the way we look back on the mullet.
Let's ponder that a moment, 'coz we all know what reaction the mere mention of the word "mullet" brings on, shall we?
Okay, so there will be no ombre'-ing for me...but, what about you?
I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts and take on this newest hair-did trend!
