Hi there :) I have dark brown hair that goes to the middle of my back and I am really keen on dying it blonde from the bottom to up a few inches but because of my hair colour I'm not sure how to go about it? I'm scared to do it myself incase it turns orange but I don't know if I can afford to get it done at the hairdresser because they charge $7 per foil, in your opinion how many foils would I need? Thanks :-)
Sorry but I don’t really know how many foils you will need. I just showed the hairdresser a ombre picture, and they treated it like any other dying/bleaching job and charged it the same standard price. Trying visiting a few salons and ask them approx. how much they will charge. Show them your hair and how thick/long it is so they can properly decipher how much work it will take them.
Guys you have to realize, I’m not a professional and only answer from my experience of dying/bleaching/ombre-ing. I try to answer all questions to the best of my ability, but I don’t want to say something wrong and just let you ruin your hair. Always double check with a professional and do a lot of research before you do ANYTHING to your hair.
Hi! I have very light-freckly skin. My hair is naturally brown but I dyed it red over the summer and dyed it back to my natural brown. I really want to go for a medium brown to blond ombte, any suggestions? :)
By medium brown, do you mean darker than your natural color? You’d have to dye your hair that color, and then bleach the ends. Also use toner and dye over the bleached ends with blonde dye.
SO I am going to ombre my hair on friday but I dont know what bleach I should buy. My hair is a dark brown and a bit red, prob a level 3 or 4. The length of my hair is to the middle of my back. I'm afraid it's going to turn out orange. Should I buy bleach and hair dye?? I was looking into regular hair dyes such as Perfect Blonde Max by L'oreal and Clairol Born Blonde ultra blue. I really just need advice and some tips :c
You’ll need toner or dye that works with dark hair. You’ll probably need to dye it either way since plain bleach hair doesn’t always look so great. I’d say, bleach your hair with a low volume bleach because it’ll cause less damage. It WILL most likely turn orange and that’s where the toner comes in. I’m not sure about those specific hair dyes, but I’m pretty sure you can find reviews on google and people who have used them to go from dark - blonde.
Hi! I have natural jet black hair. I've never died it before so I'm craving a change! I've been eyeing the ombre hairstyle for a while, however, I want something a little different. My hair is to the middle of my back. With that length I was wondering if 3 colors would look fine. I want to keep my black at top, then to burgundy, then like a expresso/caramel at the bottom. Feedback, please? :)
I don’t think it should be THAT hard. First bleach from where you want the ombre to initially start. I’d say maybe around the ears or so. Next, tone the bleached area with toner, since you have dark hair. Now, dye the top part of the bleach hair a burgundy color and slowly bring it down to where you’d like the caramel to start. Next dye the ends of the hair caramel brown and blend it in with the burgundy with your brush.
hiiiii. (; i have darker brown hair with a red ombre thats now dark pinkish, whats the process of getting rid of my ombre & turning my whole head a light brown ?
First strip the red from your hair from any sort of color stripper. Next you’d have to bleach the dark brown part of your hair until it is the same as the rest of your hair. Lastly, dye over it with a light brown. You’ll probably need toner due to brassiness that may occur from bleaching.
my hair is bleached white and pink, and is naturally brown with a brown undercut.I need to dye it one all over colour so that I can go from a dark base and maybe ombre it afterward. Should I dye the whole thing a dark colour first? Otherwise the ends would just be a weird blondeypink. Thanks!
I’m not completely experienced with this, but I would say first you’d have to strip out all the dye from your hair using a color remover. I’m pretty sure you can find that in any drug store. Then, you would have to dye it with the dark color.
