Anyways, I finally got it done (it was a bit more dramatic than most ombres) and this is the finished result, all done up.
I was happy with it! Until the next day. When I woke up and saw it 'un-made' it dawned on me that this was going to be a high-maintenance hairstyle. Because when I didn't have time to do it up in curls, it looked... There's no other way to say it - trashy.
(Granted, I am sick in these photos so I did take that into consideration)
Also, I noticed that with blonde hair, my skin looked pinker (no thanks) and since my eyes are light, the blonde kinda makes them look normal (which isn't a good thing - I like how my eyes are light and that's contrasted with dark hair). Finally, I had a flashback of when I was growing up as a towhead, I kept asking my mom when my hair would turn brown like hers. I couldn't wait. So I decided I'm a better brunette and dyed it all back
WORD OF CAUTION IF YOU'RE THINKING OF GOING OMBRE:
Dying hair 'back' after ombre is a tricky thing. If you just slop on whatever color you want, it'll soak into the more damaged parts (the ends) more than your roots and you'll end up with a reverse ombre! I had to use two different shades on the top and bottom and despite that, I ended up with some highlights coming through. But I actually like them.
