Siamese Cat Ombre - work in progress
« on: 20 Sep 14 / 01:22 PM »
In an attempt to avoid bleaching and blend roots, I went for an ombre effect this weekend after using a colour remover on the toners I've been using.

I wanted more contrast, but it's best I started out subtle because, well, I chose to use box dyes(!) and don't quite remember how dark they take.  This weekend was a good practice, and I'm quite chuffed with the results.  I used a non-permanent box dye in dark blonde, and for the root area, I added a bit of light ash brown, and blended it about halfway down.  Then I used my Nirvel ArtX grey to tone and some Touch of Silver shampoo.

For now, I love the effect because it's cleaned up the top and roots quite a lot, a rather good blend for a first try - almost like the colours of a Siamese cat.  :D




Still looks blonde overall, so next time I need a root touch-up, I want to push it a bit and get more contrast through the crown - but at least it won't look too different for work this week.



I hope to update this thread if I can get the full effect I'm after.

Thank you! :-*

This weekend, I got a little further.  The changes seem so subtle, but I think it will prove to be a great way to avoid bleach and maintain more tidy-looking, blonde hair.  I'm so chuffed with how the gradations are coming out, and the root line is nearly hidden completely.

This weekend, used more demis, with a touch of medium ash brown this time, only top and sides.  Rinsed it off, then used a colour remover on the ends to bring back some brightness.



I like how there's now a contrast when I compare the side fringe to the back and top.



Hair can be so much fun.  :D
