I’ve been eagerly awaiting warmer weather to add vibrant color to my wardrobe, accessories and … Hair!
I’m totally guilty of craving that awesome bright rainbow colored hair stylists are propelling on the runway, in music video and magazines. Can you really blame me?
Adding a dash of color to your hairstyle can really tie a look together. It’s edgy, original and rebellious, so obviously I need it, lol. But will I need it tomorrow, or next month? Probably not, so why go permanent?
I recently got into ‘Chalking’, and it has given my hair life! Chalking offers a hair coloring technique that’s nontoxic, safe and best of all, temporary, so you’re not frying your beautiful locks! All you need is a piece of chalk – that’s my kind of DIY beauty project!
In just 3 steps you can add color effect to any hairstyle. First, you’ll need a good quality wax chalk; you can find many different shades in art supply and craft shops. Second, if applying to darker hair, spray a little water first, this will help the color pop. For lighter hair, the chalk can be applied to dry hair. Finally, once the hair is completely dry, lock in that color with a curling iron, straighteners, or hairdryer. This last step is optional, but I find it helps seal in the color for longer wear.
I love trend hunting! Although staying current with fashion can be a challenge, let’s get real, trends change faster than Nicki Minaj’s hair color – basically on the daily!
I’ve realized that just as rapidly as I get excited about trends, I get bored of them – soooo over it! Luckily, not all new hot fashion crazes require a full commitment or transformation to get the look just right! Hair Chalking is a great way to use your imagination and get creative. Best of all, if you’re not into it, wash it out!
