My Ongoing Obsession About 'Ombre Highlights'

I'm a natural brunette, and when it comes to change a bit my color -and cover some grey hairs as well!- I usually go for DIY solutions such as Garnier or L'Oreal color treatments -easy and super affordable!

However, whenever I feel it's time for a change, I'm always torned between investing in some fabolous highlights or getting the $12-color treatment du jour and get it done by myself.

About the so-called 'Ombre highlights', the price point and high maintenance are big turn-offs for me. On the other hand, the final result is amazing! Check out my favorite brunettes-going- ombre:

Giuliana Rancic

Jamie Lynn Sigler 

J Lo
Penelope Cruz
Rachel Bilson

  4. Go for it -- Ombre is a hot trend. I did a variation of the ombre look with light red highlights and dark red on the bottom. It looks cute!
