Ombré Hair: The Hottest Recession Special.


I’ll probably catch a ton of heat for saying this, but I feel the ombré trend, currently sweeping the nation, is utterly heinous. The only thing separating Khloe Kardashian’s hair from that of trailer trash is a flat iron and a keratin treatment. And, because Khloe is my favorite Kardashian, this is said in love.

However, despite the fact that I miss Khloe’s rich locks, they look way better than other ombré supporters. Jessica Alba’s “womens’ correctional look” is obviously influencing the hottest mugshots in the United States. Check out these other hot ombré looks found through FL inmate searches and mugshots.com.

This woman speaks with her eyes, Just like Jessica, but her hair isn’t quite trashy enough. Jessica’s face framing tresses reflect the color of washing with untreated well-water. This woman is obviously just sporting recession hair–or is it ombré– and having an even harder time as she’s just been arrested.

Lake County, Florida’s Sarah Jessica Parker look-alike totally rocked her mugshot! Mascara? Check. Baywatch tank top? Check. It’s like she sat in her hairdresser’s chair, one Spring Break, and demanded a color that would last through hurricane season. 5 months of growth looks gorgeous– this ombré look is a must-have if you want to look amazing while being booked.

This girl is so dedicated to trendy hair that she seductively whispers, “ombré” as the officer snaps her mugshot. The peek-a-boo brown strands, in conjunction with the bleach blonde, and ash roots makes this a classic ombré look; one almost forgets they’re staring at a booking photo and believes they’re glancing at a designer perfume advertisement.

These USO performers are obviously hot, but blondie’s roots indicate only 7-12 weeks of hair growth, in comparison to Jessica’s 6 months. Nice try. However, the girls win bonus trashiness points due to the Lindsay Lohan resemblance. Nice try.

Seriously, though, my point is, I find it ridiculous that the new hair trend is to try and look trashy–when there are plenty of poor people in the world who would kill for a dye job to cover their whole head. Imagine a woman who is down on her luck and doesn’t even have the money for job interviewing attire (or clean clothes, period), let along to have her hair fixed. Don’t you think she probably wishes she had the cash to look good and project confidence? Choosing and paying to look unkempt seems a little wasteful and silly…
