New hair - slight ombré!

"What is it called - ombre or ombré ?" is what I was thinking all the time at the hairdresser.
I thought it was Ombre which means "Shadow" in french. Ombré means "Shadowed".
Apparently, all the hairdressers say "Ombré" so .. "Ombré" it is.

I was planning on having a haircut and making some slight changes in my hairstyle but didn't know what to change exactly. 

But since it had been 1 year and 3 months since I last cut it (I get panic attacks when I think about hairdressers cutting too much off of my hair ha-ha).. so it was about time to do something about it.

In my earlier blogpost "Around the globe" I told you I traveled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in April, and  over there my hair bleached to a  really light blonde color; some parts were almost white.
But it hadn't bleached evenly so it was kind of a messy look and since I'm very pale, the blonde was too blonde for my face.

So I came up with the idea to dye the upper part of my hair in a slightly darker blonde/brown and leave the ends natural, light blonde. So this is kind of the principle of an ombré, but I wanted a really natural look. I tend to change my hair just slightly when I go to the hairdresser, because I like the classic look of long hair. But some changes once in a while can only be a good thing.

I had my hair done at Sanké in Kapellen, Antwerp, Belgium.

I showed this picture of Bar Refaeli to the hairdresser:

This is what I look like:

I might go a little darker on top next time, but I really like how it looks natural!
If I'd go darker, this is what I'd go for:

What do you think of an ombré ?
Would you like one ?
