Summer may be almost over, but you can still use these great tips for the other three seasons as well. If you are as fascinated with Pinterest as I am, you may have noticed the “dip dye” trend recently. This trend is so user-friendly and has really expanded during the warm summer months! Take an old pair of denim shorts that you might consider throwing away, and dip them in bleach. Suddenly you have a two-toned pair of jeans that can be coupled with pattered tops or strappy sandals. By doing some research, I’ve seen dresses, collared shirts, maxi skirts and everything in between with a little pop of colored dye. I’m all for recycling clothing or finding hidden treasures at a thrift store. This is the perfect way to take old clothing and make it new again!
While clothing may be a popular dip dye source, hair may also be incorporated into this trend! As we’ve all seen (and possibly experimented with) the ombré hair trend is everywhere. Why not take it a step further and add some color? The idea of “chalking” some color into your hair has been seen on the streets and music festivals all summer. To transform your hair into every color of the rainbow, you must first find a smock or towel to protect your clothing from the pastel chalk. In order to section off the pieces of hair, it would be best to wrap them with a paper towel so the chalk can be fully absorbed into your hair. The trick is to twist each section of hair and rub the chalk downward at your ends. Be sure to shampoo and condition your hair more than usual because chalk can dry your hair out. Watching video tutorials may also help! You can find the pastel chalk at Michael’s for a cheap price.
