DIY: Colored Hair Tips

When we were in Austin my friend Julie had just picked up some cool Hair Chalk to try during Texas Style Council. As you can see, it worked awesome on her hair but I was worried my hair would be to dark and didn’t feel like wasting the $12. So when I saw this chalk pack on sale at the craft store, I decided to give it a go!

Let dry, then set color with a curling iron and it washes out the next day!

    Looks great on your hair, I’d didn’t know about chalking so I just took the plunge and bleached and dyed my tips instead!

  5. I love this idea – does any rub off onto your clothes or is it pretty set in there?

    This is an awesome idea!! can’t wait to try it. Not sure it’ll work on dark brown/black hair, though, but I’ll give it a go, esp for the summer’s music festivals!

    Also can’t wait for the 40Berkeley event tonight (I’m also a Boston blogger)– so glad you guys will be having monthly swaps now! :)
