Since I have been getting tons of questions as to how I did my hair, I thought I would break it down how I did it. I don’t recommend ever bleaching your hair at home because it can be VERY damaging. I also don’t claim to be a hair stylist or a professional, this is just how I did my hair at home. I never recommend bleaching out the ends of your hair at home so you can get the tips bleached out by a pro, then play with the colors on your own. The thing about color tips-you can hide it in a bun for work or since it’s only a few inches you can cut it off if you get over it quickly.
TOOLS (I bought everything at Sally Beauty Supply): comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach and developer (I used Ion Color Brilliance Powder lightener mixed with 30vol developer), colored dye (I used Beyond the Zone), deep conditioner
Step 1 Clip the top half of hair up leaving the bottom half loose. Then highlight the tips of hair using the bleach and developer in foil. Make sure to feather on the bleach with brush so it blends better.
Step 2 Fold up your foil and let it process until it reaches a pale blonde. Use appropriate heat if necessary.
Step 3 Shampoo and lightly condition bleach out of the hair.
Step 4 (I did not blow dry my hair but you can if you wish)Let hair air dry overnight.
Step 5 Next day with hair dry (hair must be dry for color to take)
Step 6 Place the hair on a foil (divide into small sections for better management)
Step 7 Starting a bit above the blonde part of hair, paint on dark purple color (or whatever color you choose) I blended in with gloved fingers to ensure coverage.
Step 8 Paint the very tips (or bottom 1/2) with pink color. Be sure to blend.
Step 9 Fold foil over and let color sit for about 30 minutes. (the longer it sits, the more vibrant the color)
Step 10 Rinse out the color until water runs clear and put in a deep conditioner. Sleep with deep conditioner overnight. (hair needs moisture and nutrients after bleaching)
Have fun with it! You don’t have to use two colors, you could just use one if wanted (it would actually be easier) I would love to see you photos if you try!
