Pink ombré

Hi beauty's sorry its been such a long time were so mixed up with the move I'm struggling to find time but I'm back even if its just for now as soon as we have moved in and fixed up my own blogging room will be in business and you will have plenty of posts to read. 

So back to this post pink ombré. 

I love doing creative things on people's hair, I believe that every client is different and no one should leave my salon chair looking exactly like someone else so their for when 'G' came into the salon and mentioned she wanted ombré hair I was quick to try and encourage her to sway away from the blonde. After a long convocation it was easy to see G likes the idea of having pink hair, having done a few blonde ombré and seeing a lot of blonde ombré out in the streets at the moment the chance to try something different but still using the same technique was welcomed. 

G's hair was fairly natural when I started and I wanted to keep her natural in as she has no greys theirs no point putting in another colour to start regrowth, the pink colour I used was goldwell ellumen pk@all 
Pk@all only works on pre-lightened hair to show its full potential so I started by bleaching up the ends. 

1. Section the hair in 4 and tie hair bands where you want the top of the ombré to start.. The hair in its band should allow to fall flat if it sticks out from the band like a high pony tail chances are the ombré is too high. Make sure all 4 bands are level with each other and apply oxyplatin goldwell bleach granules  with goldwell topchic 6% peroxide To the hair under the bands using the bands as a stopper. (Picture show below)

2. After the bleach has developed for roughly 30mins wash off with a deep conditioning shampoo and conditioner 

(development time will vary from head to head you need to take into account virgin hair damaged hair and length of hair) 
Now the fun part begins. 
Because G wanted a baby pink we had to mix goldwell ellumen clear with the pk@all I used equal parts of both. 
Ellumen needs to be added to dry hair and comes out like jelly so it has to be evenly spread all over where the bleach has just been put. (As shown in pic above when washing the colour off I removed the bands, to add to ellumen we need to put the bands back into the hair using the bleach as a guide. I moved my bands a bit higher this time with 1-2cm of natural hair under the band. This helps add in the gradual from natural to pink. Letting the ellumen process for 30-40mins.. 

3, once colour has developed wash off and complete with ellumen lock for 5mins and let it saturate into the hair. Finally shampoo and condition with colour care products and dry...

I love this colour and think keeping the natural hair at the top really shows off the pink beautifully. 
Ombré has been a really big trend for a few years now and I love that this isn't the traditional blonde ombré look but is still in high fashion and looks stunning.. 

Next time you visit your stylist why don't you see how they can take the recent colour trend. mix it up and match it to suit you, your lifestyle and your personality. 

Happy colouring..... 

P.s ombré is not a technique i would advice for you to try yourselves with box dyes.... Yes many claim you can get that salon look at home but it fully depends on your hair type colour and condition.. Very dark hair or over coloured hair will only lift to a ginger if your lucky.. Always consult a professional prior to attempting it at home and where possible always alow a professional to carry out the service for you with salon approved products... It will mean less disasters and more beautiful healthy looking and feeling hair
