Is the Ombre Trend on Its Way Out?

I was pretty shocked when my best friend texted me the photo below two days ago:

My first thought:  What is going on with this girl's hair? My second thought: Byebye, Ombre..?

Throughout college and even to this very day, my girlfriends all hopped onto the dyed ombre hair bandwagon (I am a self-proclaimed Hair Virgin - no dye will be touching my hair until I get some lovely white hairs sprouting from my head).  I remember that the ombre look used to seem bizarre, and too extreme.  Fast forward a couple years later, and almost every other person seems to be dying their hair ombre - so what's to say that this Splash Lighting trend won't be the next "big" thing in hair?  Creator Aura Friedman states, "I wanted to create the effect that a laser beam is hitting your hair at a certain spot."  The hair is bleached in a horizontal streak around the head, creating a "halo" effect, if you will.  I think it's pretty neat- and I am sure that a more toned-down, wearable version could be flattering.  

I, for one, think that this splash lighting trend could very well be the next "it" trend in haircare.  What are your thoughts?
