Strange... I have always heard it has started in California! I had never seen this trend in France before.

Nahhh I believe this trend started around the recession time in the Land of 'Too Broke or Lazy to go the Hair Salon' or 'I Dyed it Myself and Messed up' Kingdom


teenagexvanity & papa_levante: Love the subtlety of both of yours. It's really pretty.

Personally I like this trend subtle, not many people can pull off the dark brown to blond toned hair and not look ridiculous.

there was an article years ago about 'hair painting' in france....i'll have to see if i could dig it up. it was lightening the ends and hand painting upwards so it looked like more natural highlights than the ones sported by pop stars here...

^yeah I thought so too (about it coming from california, thought it was to re-create the sun lighting effect... )

So finally went to the hairdresser's. It's the first time he's tried this so I guess it's okay.
I'm just bumming because its more of a light brown then blonde. when he rinsed it out he said that it went blonder then what he wanted, that he was going for something more cooperish. I hate when hairdresser's take decision at my place... I mean why go cooper when I showed him exactly the blonde I wanted? Ok it's the first time, he didnt know what it would look like so he didnt want it to look un natural... Anyway, I guess next time I'll have to tell him I want it my way.

(just wondering, until then, if I want it to be a little lighter at the ends, would you advise me to just buy a highlighting kit and do little strands at the tips? Or would that look weird/turn orange-ish? (that's my main worry ))

Andrea.RL, yeah it's so annoying when hairdressers seem to be working to please themselves. if you showed him exactly what you wanted, then he should try to get as close as possible. if he won't do it then he should have told you upfront. if it came out too light, he could always tone it down. it looks nice though

I'd love to see it if you can find it!

It looks good Andrea.RL! You're probably disappointed it's not so contrasted, but as we say "less is more"

Nex time, you'll probably get the result you're expecting!

THANK YOU guys! :p

Yeah that's exactly it. ' I was worried he would go too blonde and finally he didnt go enough. But like you said next time will be perfect. I'll probably go at the end of summer, before school starts.

I'm thinking about getting something like this, except her roots are too dark.

I like that too, but I agree, it kind of overshot the mark in the contrast department.

Hmm...her hair is too long for it, it looks cheap. And it sort of goes dark light dark light.
I really miss Alexa Chung's two-tone hair, imho opinion she looked great with it, though many people hated it. Ombre is great with short hair.
I hate dip-dye though Especially like Nicki Minaj or when it's pink/coloured at the ends.

Though that picture is quite cool, still it's ugh.

Her hair kind of falls flat without it:

^ Thanks for the two contrasting Alexa photos. It did really help her look.

She's also very pale in the second one. Or maybe it just looks that way because her hair is so dark.

I don't like Alexa's hair either way. It looked nicer longer at her natural colour.
