Now some of you who read my blog on a regular basis will have noted that I have previously blogged about the technique of dip dying. As much as I love love loved it, it may seem a bit daring for some so this evolved more understated version will ensure your luscious locks are the envy of all hair & beauty gurus!
The general take on this trend is that you dye the body of your hair (steering clear of your roots) a slightly lighter shade than your natural hair colour. This creates an illusion that your hair colour has changed naturally by the heat and light of the sun... brilliant! Celebrities to embrace the look include Alexa Chung, Rachael Bilson, and Lauren Conrad. It looks refreshing, and is just the thing to do if your looking for something different to do to a boring barnett.
So how do you do it?!
It is basically the same as the technique of dip dye hair but you need to add more length to the foils and use hair lightener or lighter dyes rather than brightly coloured hair dye to get the desired sun kissed look. It looks at its best in choppy layered hair as then you really get to see the different shades of colour.
Here is a little guide from Regis hair salons:
If your dying your hair rather than lightening it, I would suggest you do it at a salon, but if you are feeling adventurous, have a go at doing it yourself!
