A Hair Dilemma

Alright, gather round my lovely ladies, I've got a hair dilemma! I want something to happen to my hair and I sort of want it ASAP, and the new style I'm vying for is 'ombre' hair!

I've been wanting to do something with my hair for a while now but they always fell through - I've wanted blue highlights, stick-straight hair with blunt bangs, dreadlocks (don't ask!), and strawberry blond curls - yes, I feel hair-frustrated! I dream about a new WTF hairstyle every week

Now I want ombre hair before my last, self-imposed summer holiday is over..but I'm not sure if I should. Nothing crazy (though they are tempting) like blue dip-dye or rainbow hues, just maybe brown dipped into dark blond? What are your thoughts? I am doing this maybe next week, haha!

One reason I am so nervous is because I don't have a good history with new hairstyles, here's a look I did last year, where the hairdresser butchered my hair first, straightened it for a day, and left it a mess - all for a haircut with bangs (yes, shiver, sweeties! I still shiver when I see this)

Thank you in advance for your comments and advice,
I'll be back with a new outfit post soon!
