UP-do testing

   Kim Kardashian posted behind the scenes photos of her WMB 3-D shoot on her blog. I saw this up-do hair style and thought to test out the basics and see how it could look on me. 

Its not exact but its a start. I'm going to try and perfect it over the weekend. What I did only took me like 5 minutes. A bit of volume on the top, the sides slick down, with a messy bun.

Black and yellow!

This was my date night outfit for June that I forgot about. I was inspired by Fergie in her Lucky June issue. Enjoy!

Shirt: Target boyfriend shirt
Skirt: h&m
Belt: NYC
Shoes: DSW (toes Sally Hansen xtreme nail color green with envy)
Jewelry: Necklace and cuffs are thrifted, watch, hoops my local flea market.

Ombre Highlights

 Ombre Highlights

"This super-bohemian color trend drifted into town like a laid-back surfer girl and swiftly kicked to the curb the cardinal rule of hair color: never let them see your roots. Its signature slow-fade of rich, dark brown up top, and bright sun-kissed tips perfectly suited the easygoing vibe of poster girls Jessica Biel and Rachel Bilson."  Instyle Hair special issue spring/summer 2011

I got my Ombre Highlights done about a month or so ago and I absolutely love it! I did lots of research on it before I brought it up to my friend Esther who it also my hairstylist. I looked through several  video's on you tube to see the technique being used and printed a picture of Lauren Conrad (as a brunette) along with these instructions from her blog the beauty department and a picture of Minka Kelly to take in for inspiration. If you're in the mood for a change and you don't want to do a full die job or old school highlights that you have to keep up with, well this is the perfect look. 

If you're in my area and you are looking into getting this look you can go to Shear Art Salon & Spa contact them through email set up and appointment with Esther and let her know I sent you for a discount. I absolutely love my ombre highlights, I'll be keeping this look for a while. Enjoy!
