I was asked to review the 'Rush' salon conveniently situated on Oxford Street, a spot of shopping and a new 'hairdo'? Yes please.
I went to the salon with the intention of going either much lighter or extremely dark and I got the best of both. I got ombre.
I attempted the 'at home' ombre myself in the past, (twice to be precise) but never really got it perfect which ended in me dying it back to brown after a few days. However, this time round the professionals worked their magic and I LOVE it.
Here's my 'before' pic where I look ermmmm extremely worried. You can see that my hair was a flat weird warm shade of brown with my roots coming through. *Sigh* Not a good look.
What did I have done?
Half head of foil highlights all over except from the crown
Dip Dye bleach to lighten the ends
Darkening of the roots to match my natural hair colour
Here's me in all my foil glory...
A perfectly natural looking ombre, well as natural as it gets anyway. :)
I'm so pleased I had the highlights done as well as the dip dye/ombre as it resulted in a more dimensional colour and helped frame my. I love that my roots are dark and how low maintenance it's going to be for me as it grows out. Did you know that Ombre is STILL one of the most requested looks?
A huge thank you to the whole team at Rush Oxford St who were extremely friendly and helpful even though they didn't even realise I was a blogger at first. it just goes to show that they are super attentive and friendly to every single customer. Furthermore, a special thank you to Chris the colourist who did an amazing job! Thank You. A 10/10 from me! I would totally recommend the salon without any hesitation.

What are your thoughts on Ombre? In the beginning I hated it and still do on some people, but when done right it's rather magical. Can you tell I'm happy?
(Disclaimer - I wasn't paid for this post but I did get my hair done courtesy of Rush PR for review purposes, my 100% honest opinion as always.)
