DIY Blonde Ombre! (from blonde to lighter blonde)

Hey everyone!!! So since this is the first time I've ever done anything to my hair you can imagine my horror at how this may turn out but for the love of blogging I decided to take pictures and think it turned out pretty decently! Especially for having virgin hair I had no idea what I was doing but sicnr then my hair dresser has even complimented my on how nice my ombré is! (She was shocked to find I did it myself) but here's a little how t on how I did it step by step :)
1.Apply the bleach to about halfway down your hair, where you want the ombre to start.....it has to be to completely dry hair or it won't work...so I brushed my hair out really well and then applied this to get it as even as possible and tried to stagger the bleach a little so it wasn't a straight across line


2. Then rinse out the bleach after you keep it in to get the lightening effect you want....and blow dry your hair so you can dye the bottom part for the ombre effect ( I left the bleach in my hair for 15 minutes and that was enough but if your hair is darker you might want to leave it in longer)

3. Then apply the bleach to the bottom half of the part that has just been bleached (you can't really see it here but the bleach is in my hair...and aww look at one of my dogs in the background!)

4. Then wash it out again after you get the desired effect...i left mine on for another 15 minutes




And here is the finished effect!!!!! super easy and only takes around 45 minutes.....make sure to deep condition the bleached part of your hair after because it will be really dry from the blow drying and bleaching you just did to it
(in case anyone wondered this is the bleach I used...it's by L'Oreal Paris...I realize i cut the top off in the picture...but it already had the trash from the dye in it when I took it)


See so it's extremely easy and simpler than most people think it is...I've done it twice now and this is by far the easiest thing to do ...


****UPDATE****
I HAVE FIGURED OUT THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS USING DYE/DEVELOPER FROM A BEAUTY SUPPLY I DID A WHOLE POST ON IT YOU CAN FIND IT HERE 
it is the least damaging to your hair and provided the best results :):)

Good luck and happy bleaching/ombre-ing!

much love xx. -Stephanie
