Ombré

Male Lions on Rock

leo the lion.


On Saturday I went to get my hair done. Sitting in the chair waiting to get the usual brunette color, I told my hairdresser that I wanted something different...that I wanted to try the Ombré look to give my hair a little more interest and more dimension. A couple of hours later and a STAGGERING amount of money later, my hairdresser spun me around in the chair to let me face the final product in the mirror. Looking upon my freshly Ombréd and fluffed up locks I squealed, "I look like a LION!!! I love it!" 

P.S.  I don't really REALLY look like a lion -- even though I am a Leo and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the kitties -- but I kind of wish I did.  Some of the colors in my new hair remind me of these lovely lion manes.

I would love to see pictures of your hair! I so want to try ombre, but I think it looks better on brunettes, I don't know how it work on me.

I LOVE lions!! Those pictures are gorgeous- I just want to go cuddle with one- but that wouldn't go very well for me, I am thinking :)

I wish I looked like a lion. I once went into the salon and said "make me look like michelle pfieffer in grease 2" but I just looked like a 2000's updated version. They didn't know I meant literally

I really really like the ombre look but since I hv brown skin and really dark hair, it would look so odd on me. I want picture pleaseee! :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Haha I bet your hair looks awesome! At first I thought this was going to be a disaster story and I was bracing myself for the worst. ;)

Dancing Branflake said...

I love your new hair! ...and while you don't look like a lion, you're right, the colors are similar ....but your texture is so much nicer, lol ;)

tulpen said...

I haven't a sweet clue what "Ombre" is.

But loving the lion photos.

And? I've always considered Leo the hottest sign. Even before I met my Leo husband.

Ace said...

Okay, now I really want to see your lion mane!

Katie said...

Lucky lady! My hair is way too short for anything ombre but I am thinking of getting some kind of bright color on the tips. Ok so maybe it was just an idea that popped in my head today but it sounds good. Seriously though show us your mane!

This may work for me, too. I'm in a hair slump!

WendyB said...

Will sulk till you post a picture.

Kitty Stampede said...

I really, really like this look. I am not sure it would work on me though..depends on the shades I guess.
Good comparison, I didn't realize the lions sported the ombre look..hee.

I FREAKING LOVE LIONS AND THEIR MANES!!! love every one of these photos....sigh...they are gorgeous.
