PC Video With L’Oreal: Learn How to Ombre Your Hair At Home

Lara Eurdolian, L'Oreal Feria Ombre Kit Review

So how exciting is this! I partnered with Beauty High to show you how to ombré your hair at home using the NEW L’Oréal Paris’ Feria at-home ombré hair dye kit.

Have you always wanted to try the ombré hair trend but didn’t want to spend the money or time at a salon? Well now you don’t have to! L’Oréal Paris’ Feria at-home ombré hair dye kit is an easy at-home kit at a fraction of the cost of salons and it took me less then an hour to do my locks! Plus nothing beats being in the comfort of your own home when getting your hair did (especially since most of the time you’re just sitting around). And for anyone that already has an ombre but it’s fading or growing out, this kit is the easiest (and most inexpensive way) to help you maintain your look.

Considering summer is here, what better time to try out a fun new hairstyle? For someone like me who has dark hair, I don’t have a lot of options, especially given that I have long hair and don’t want to fry my roots (or cut it to do something and different). An ombre is the best solution since it looks good with any hair color and  hair length, and it’s such low maintenance — you don’t have to worry about your roots growing in! Plus, you decide how low or high the ombre goes. For me I like it at the bottom so if by the end of summer I’m over it, it’s just an easy hair cut from going away. Minimal commitment needed.

In the video above, I show you how to get the look and home and walk you through the steps of using the L’oréal Feria Wild Ombré Hair Kit. The whole process took maybe an hour and could not have been easier!

Step 1: Make sure your hair is dry and detangled, and put on the plastic safety gloves.

Step 2: Put the shimmering powder packet into the bottle, put the flat cap on, and shake. Put the lightening cream into the bottle, put the flat cap on and shake. Then replace with the applicator cap.

Step 3: Part your hair naturally and clip your top layer of hair up to access the bottom layer of your hair.

Step 4: Squeeze the dye evenly onto the applicator brush, and brush it onto the bottom parts of your hair that you would like ombré. Add more product until the lengths are completely saturated, and let sit for 25 minutes.

Step 5: Use the conditioning shampoo, rinse, and style as usual!

Now all you need is to pick up a kit for yourself and you’re ready to DIY ombré your hair at home!
