I will say, though, that I've definitely been more experimental when it comes to color. I get my roots done every 4-5 weeks to cover the grays - that's a given - because I started getting grays in college and my dad started graying in his twenties... awesome.
I tried the ombre trend about a year and a half ago when it was first popular. I LOVED it but my husband HATED it. He didn't "understand" it, he said. Hahaha. Men - they never get it. The high school students I was teaching at the time really liked it. I kept it for a while... basically until my ends got cut enough that it was all cut out.
This is what my ombre looked like (I took this exact picture to my hairdresser):
Ah, Khloe Kardashian. She cracks me up.
But I digress.
I've also done my share of highlighting - everything from copper-y tones to reddish hues. Most of my highlights are grown out now, so my hair's kind of boring. This is how I had my hair done about six months ago:
I loved it. I had highlights mostly on my underneath layers. But it's all about gone now. Boo.
Here are some of the pics I've clipped lately that are giving me some inspiration for this summer.
#1 - I love the layers in the picture below. I usually don't part my hair right down the middle, but I do like this look on Jamie Lynn Sigler.
#2 - This look is similar to the length my hair is now but minus the highlights. I like her color, though, and how the highlights are subtle and natural looking. Minka Kelly is so pretty.
#3 - I think this is my favorite pic out of the ones I've included here. Audrina Patridge - remember her from "The Hills"? She always had the best hair... and still does. I like her highlights, the cut, and the side part. Done, done, and done.
#4 - I've always liked Jessica Alba's 'dos. Here I like the shorter length and the waves. I feel like they really bring out her highlights.
#5 - I like Kate Beckinsale's color here, although I think it might be a bit too blonde for me.
Which of the hairstyles is your favorite? I think I'll be taking one of these pics to my hairdresser in June.
I mean, after all...
PS - I finally got to watching (well, skimming through) the Billboard Music Awards from like a week or two ago. Did you see Tori Kelly's performance? I had never heard of her before, but she rocks! Check her out if you missed it!
