I have wanted to dye my hair red for absolutely eons. It runs in the family but I always think I got the short straw because though in direct sunlight my hair turns a gorgeous shade of red, the rest of the time it's a pretty mousey brown.

It is an ongoing thought in my mind what sort of shade of red I want to go. I really love bright red hair like Lily Cole and Marcia Cross, and I know it would suit me but as my hair is totally natural, and I have never ever dyed it before I want a slightly more natural shade. Recently I've fallen head over heels with the colour of style blogger Bekah Dale's hair, in the middle of the two photos of Lily and Marcia.
The only reason, I think, I have not already changed my hair colour is because I don't want to have to aways deal with toughing up my roots. Recently, I've noticed a rising trend among both fashion bloggers (who I pay attention to) and celebrities (whom unless they appear in NYLON magazine or are in one of my favourite TV shows I roundly ignore) of having ombre hair; your natural or previous hair colour roots with dipped bleach bottoms.

However, as much as I Google everyone I have found who has ombre hair has done the trend by lightening it to blond at the bottom. I want to use the style to keep my hair natural at the roots and streak my sunlight colour towards the bottom. Have the hair colour I want but keep my natural hair at the roots. I'm going to get it down on Tuesday, but does anyone think it might actually work, red bottoms rather than bleached blond? If I could get away with sneaking some deeper and darker redder tones in there too I think, if possible it would be the perfect style for me!
