While most women my age are turning to lighter hair colours because they are dealing with grey roots I am struggling with my still brown roots wishing they would turn grey. It occurred to me this was more than a little crazy. My greying friends would love my dark roots while I am looking at their grey ones with envy. My hairdresser suggested the new Ombré style of colouring.
Having spent years dealing with re growth and trying to stay on top of my six weekly maintenance regime to keep me the shade of blonde I like, I have decided to embrace the new french trend of Ombré hair. By allowing the roots to be my natural colour and adding highlights further down, I'm hoping I can achieve a more low maintenance hair colour.
First step was to have some much darker highlights through my blonde hair - a little challenging given I have been a blonde for over 30 years.
