Daring or Dreadful: Two-Toned/Ombre Hair



       Every Friday while I'm watching Fashion Police on E!, I always think to myself how much I love Giuliana Rancic's hair color! Her roots start in a dark brown shade, but as the hair falls, the color lightens until it's basically butterscotch blonde at the tips. Her two-toned hair, also known as ombre, always catches my eye, and I'm loving it!

       Giuliana isn't the only celebrity trying out this trend though. Shenae Grimes, Drew Barrymore, Hilary Duff, Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, Sarah Jessica Parker, and my favorite, Lauren Conrad, among others have been experimenting with this look. It's almost like they let their roots grow out so that their natural color shows, but the color happens to blend perfectly with the previous color. Have you tried coloring your hair this way, or is your hair naturally like this? I would love to hear for my followers!

                              What's your take on this hair trend? Daring or Dreadful?





Lauren Conrad took it to the next level and tried the ombre look with peach. She asked the readers of The Beauty Department Blog if she should try this trend, and they said yes! Is this too extreme for you?

  3. I actually like the ombre (on most) and I tried it on my hair and it totally fried :( Cute look, not good on your hair though.

  4. Oh, I finally know what ombre hair is! I'd heard of it everywhere but had been too lazy to look it up, hehe.

    And I really like the peach tips ;).

    Hope you've started the week off with a big smile!

  5. I actually love this look. I tried to get my hair stylist to ombre me about a year ago and he pretty much told me no (since I am so blonde it would basically have been a reverse ombre, and he said I would hate it). It was a sad, sad day.

    This post makes me want it again.

  7. i love it! it's my style right now actually as you can see in my photos! not that blonde though, cause my hair is naturally dark, but my skin looks much healthy with warm colors, i think is a great look, a little bit daring but once you start it's almost impossible to go back!

  8. If it's done right, I love it! Looks great on Lauren Conrad.

  11. This tecnique is similar to shatush,I think the hair deteriorate over time. I have them so, but they are natural (sun, sea and
    straightener)!

  14. I really like it! I usually highlight my hair, and always wish I could sit on my hands long enough for it to grow out to ombre :)

  15. Do it Do it Do it! I wanted to try it but I need a trim and I've never colored my hair, sooo scared.

  16. I think this trend is pretty cool,and it's honestly growing on me. O.o
    I loove drew's ombre hair and lauren conrads hair, love how it has a smooth transition to light brown to blonde, really pretty. :)

    Oh! I looove The beauty Department blog! I stumbled over it over the summer, and was shocked to find out it was run by Lauren Conrad and her friends.
    The site made me like her, because I just didn't care for her in the past.
    Love her pretty in peach hair color ♥ :)

    Thank you for your commnet on my new post!

  27. Ombre hair is pretty, but it have to be done well with the right colours! (not as Jessica Biels' hair! terrible in my opinion!)
    Love the way lauren conrad ombre dyed her hair!

  29. I love ombre hair! Mine is slightly ombre but not as drastic as the ladies pictures. I would definitely love a more dramatic look!

  30. Definitely not a fan!It looks good on SJP, though!

  31. I like it on other people, particularly your pics of Hilary Duff and Lauren Conrad, but not on myself. That's what I've got going on right now in my hair, and I'm getting it dyed on Nov 19! Hooray! Ombre does not work for me! :(

  32. hate hate hate. ugh. i think it looks 'dirty' in a way.

  33. i feel like it's a way for people who color their hair to look more natural. because i have a natural haircolor and it looks like that without doing anything... it's always darker at roots. i guess because the older hair has seen more sun. it used to bother me but now it's fashionable. haha

  34. I think it looks great. The peach is a really great idea I haven't seen it before! I wouldn't take it too extreme with a completely different colour, but the examples you have displayed look lovely!
