Each Fall, women rush to their neighborhood salon to dye their Summer highlights away. The lighter shade is fun while the mercury is high, but by October, it starts to look like you’re trying too hard.
This year, fashion magazines are encouraging women to skip their Fall dye jobs and allow their hair to grow into an ombre shade. While Rachel Bilson hair looks positively beachy, this shade is not the low maintenance hairstyle that the magazines make it out to be. In fact, if you don’t take care of your ombre locks you’ll wind up looking something like this…
Where I come from, these are called roots. And roots are bad.
So unless you have a really good colorist on standby, I suggest you resist the impulse to try the ombre hairstyle. Or else you’ll just wind up looking like you missed a few (dozen) hair appointments.
