When it comes to our locks, we're more than willing to go the distance...okay, maybe explore the distance is more like it. Whether that means having a go with the razor á la Alice Dellal or channeling the '80s mop-top YSL style in a sleek bowl cut, we do indeed love a fresh 'do. So when we noticed the ombre hair highlights beginning to surface, we knew it would be a trend to tempt us. The subtle shift in color, from the palest light to the deepest dark, more than suits our love of contrasts. But could we--would we--actually rock this look ourselves? Tell us straight: Are these ombre hair highlights total radness or just plain badness?
