Hey Guys! Im thinking about getting an Ombre look, but i cant deiced if i should do it myself or just spend the money and get it done professionally. Let me know what you think. And if i do deiced to do it myself got any tips?
Ive been debating on it myself, after seeing so many youtube videos on it u i decided i will do it myself. Go to sallys and they will tell you all you need.
step back from the bleach. 1. Make shure your haire is in good condition before had . 2 deermin if you want a few shades lighter 2-3 or do you want 4-5 shades lighter. You could just use developer to lift hair a few shades ligher wih out the bleach.
I would do it myself! It's super duper easy! I've done it 3 times now!:)
I personally wouldn't do any highlighting/ombre jobs on myself because of bad dye jobs I've done in the past. If you trust yourself and are confident that you know what you're doing I'd go for it but if not, if it goes wrong you're going to be spending that money anyway to fix your hair.
I have ombre hair right now and I went to my trusted hair dresser for the job :)

Thanks. yeah I've been looking at all the videos online and it seems so easy! Thanks for all the tips!
I did mine all by myself! Turned out great! I'm sure you'll do well:)
Do it by yourself. 👍

DIY if you're moderately skilled, but if you've done nothing more than basic box color, you might want to make an appointment. If price is an issue, look up your local beauty school, you can get it done at a discount & as a student I can say that 1)We love being able to do cool stuff like Ombre' 2)There is always an instructor around! (at least where I go!)
If you know hair, you can do it yourself BUT if your dying ur roots instead of ur ends I recommend you get it done. I prefer not to dye my hair so I purchase two toned weave. It's dark brown at the root and blonde on the ends. Good Luck hun. ♛♛♛Be Dazzling♛♛♛

I have an ombre colour at the moment and absolutely love it !
FWIW, I switched to professional salon colouring as soon as I had two pennies to rub together. I scrimped for years, but I personally prefer to leave it to professionals (whatever it may be) if I can afford it :)

You should search at home ombre vs. salon ombre pictures. Professional dye jobs are really worth the price. Last year I did an at home dip-dye and this year had it done at a salon. The salon dip dye is way cooler and more interesting, there is a lot of depth and dimension. There is very much a difference, plus who doesn't love relaxing at a salon instead of stressing if your hair is going to burn off....(or at least that's my worry cause I am no pro)

OMG get it done, saw a girl at the salon yesterday she tried it at home and ended up destroying her hair ... if you do it at home be very careful.
Get it done because if you mess it up and damage your hair your going to have to a professional anyway to fix it which will cost even more money
I've never done anything to my hair myself except run a comb through it & I successfully did the ombre at home. It was super easy, BUT if you do not feel comfortable you're better off just letting the pros do it. You don't want to question yourself once the bleach is on.
In my area no professionals knew how to do it! I was so shocked, my friends looked all over and no salons would do it, felt comfortable doing it or knew how! Needless to say I've been doing lots of ombres for people! If you CAN find a salon that will do it you should! :) But if you aren't doing anything extreme than ombre can be very easy to do on your own:)
Do it your self make sure you watch your hair. Ive done it to myself and it came out great. I used the revolon frost and glow highlighting kit. You might wanna use a toner after if you have any brassy/orange tones.

If I were you I would put bleach on my hair. I would get it done. I learnt this the hard way and now I'm still paying for it a year after doing it...
If you can afford to go to a salon then I'd recommend you pay for a professional to do it. I colour my own hair but that's because I change it often and can't afford salon prices. I've had plenty of disasters over the years so I always suggest getting a pro to do it if you can :)
