Ombre?

So I heard about this hairstyle from Srslyliz and I was instantly interested. So this is the new trend... it's called ombre or sometimes hombre hair and the concept is simple: you have two shades of color in your hair from roots to ends. I have such mixed feelings about it. Part of me thinks it's silly and it looks like you dyed your hair and your roots started to come in, and yet another part of me is intrigued and finds it kind of pretty, so much so I kinda wanna do it! I doubt I actually will, but I'm considering it. What are your thoughts on it?? I wouldn't go for something so drastic, maybe something like Lily's or Leighton's.
