Get Styled Giveaway: Is it Ombre or Hombre?

by DiPaola Momma (HNIC) on February 25, 2013

Can you remember the last time you went to the salon? By “went” to the salon I don’t mean taking the kids for a clip or popping in to ask where the nearest Starbucks is. What I’m asking is when was the last time you took yourself to the salon.  If you’re anything like me you have a personal style team comprised of the dynamic duo of  Scunci and Nice N’ Easy, who both have galleries at Target. I’m so out of touch with a proper touch up that I can’t tell the difference between “Ombre” and “Hombre”.

Apparently one looks like this…

Whilst the other like is…

ombre pinkWho knew? Well apparently those who are afforded the time to; a) watch TV and b) spend a little time in a salon that doesn’t include airplane shaped barber chairs. For the record, William Levy is one hot HOMBRE, and this hair has cool hot pink OMBRE highlights.

Admittedly I lack style, and make rather infrequent trips to the salon. In my defense, running a household and my own business doesn’t really allow much time for a day at the salon. Lucky for me, and for you too, places like Hair Cuttery are upping the style factor by being so much more than the family “barber”.

Or hey, you could even drop in for a color boost (no appointment needed) between drop-offs at soccer practice. In fact, appelaing to both the time-strapped and cheap-o chicks in me they are even having a big sale on color through March 4th, 2013.  Hair Cuttery offers a full menu of style services at over 900 locations from the East Coast to the Midwest serving up everythig from cuts to color, curls to Keratin and even.. you guessed it… ombre! 

Really, you need to do this for YOU. There are few things as empowering as stepping out of the salon with a new do, feeling like a new you. Gosh darn it, you deserve it. The folks at Hair Cuttery agree and they’ve teamed up with me to give one lucky Nuggetier a $50 gift card to get  it done. With services like a shampoo, cut and blow-dry starting at around $26, you’re set!

I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network. I received a Hair Cuttery gift card to facilitate my post and monetary compensation. As always all opinions are my own, because gosh darn it you deserve it!

This would be awesome! I’d love to ave a nice clip. It’s been almost 3 years since my last one! (Gasp!)

Oh, and I’d love to go to Vermont. Never been.

Ha, ha… Vermont. This is what happens when you set up a giveaway before you’ve had the proper amount of coffee. Consider yourself entered. Oh, and I’d love to go to Vermont too!

I would say just trying dry shampoo. Yuck. That crap doesn’t work.


DiPaola Momma (HNIC) February 26, 2013 at 6:48 am

Agreed! It’s just gross, huh?


Sharold February 25, 2013 at 1:23 pm

The most daring I have done is cut my own bangs


DiPaola Momma (HNIC) February 26, 2013 at 7:01 am

DiPaola Momma (HNIC) February 26, 2013 at 11:39 am

Me either! Oh the horror.


Katie Roch February 26, 2013 at 10:34 am

I had my hair died from my natural blonde color do deep reddish/brown and had bangs cut for the first time.


Alissa February 26, 2013 at 2:30 pm

You ALWAYS look so fabulous. I on the other hand definitely need a trip to the salon.


DiPaola Momma (HNIC) February 26, 2013 at 8:06 pm

Oh hush, I’m the queen of dark roots and yoga pants!


Alissa February 26, 2013 at 2:32 pm

I tried to dye my own hair and the color was lighter than I had used before so I had a neon red/pink skunk stripe down my head. Nice, no?

DiPaola Momma (HNIC) March 2, 2013 at 7:38 am
