Have you ever reached the stage where you’ve grown out your hair, but haven’t gone back to the salon to touch up your roots, either for lack of time or funds? Why not try ombre? Don’t worry, you won’t have to spend more than $10 for this trick. All you have to do is visit your local drugstore and pick up a root touch-up kit!
Here’s 2 ways to go ombre with the root touch-up kit:
1. Pick a shade that’s either very close to your original color or slightly darker. Start at your roots and work your way down. Try to apply less of the touch-up on the parts that are already colored so they stay somewhat lighter. Remember the more you color, the “shorter” the ombre will be!
2. The second way to get the ombre look with a touch-up kit is to pick a shade that’s slightly lighter and color ONLY the top/middle parts (starting near the roots) of the ombre and try to blend in the color.
Of course, you could always just let the ombre come naturally and just rock the California highlights!
