If you’ve been a little wary of coloring your hair, especially on your own at home get ready for an awesome way to get multi-colored tips without any commitment - hair chalking! It’s super-easy, and we had a ton of fun doing it.
Want to turn back time like Cher, and look like teenager again?!!! Here’s how you can get the look too!
Soft pastel chalk. We picked this giant set up from a local craft store for about $5!
A small spray bottle filled with water
A flat iron or curling iron
A old towel or t-shirt you don’t mind getting color on.
Step 1: Spray a 1-inch section of hair with water. You don’t need to soak the entire strand, just go as high up as you want the color to be.
Step 2: Color on your hair with one of the pastels. Professionals recommend choosing about threecolors, and putting one at a time in your hair. Start with the lightest shade first, since, as you can see, the color gets all over your gloves and you’ll end up with a muddied version of the same hue throughout if you go dark to light.
Step 3: Wait for your hair to air dry.
Step 4: Using the curling or flat iron, go over each colored strand. This sets the colors in your hair, so it will last longer. Then brush and style however you normally would!
The color stayed in hair (which is naturally medium blonde)for about a week, while my friend’s (who bleaches her hair) washed out the next day. The best part about this technique is that it works for people with darker hair too, although the color is much more subtle.
