Our appearance can often dictate how we feel about ourselves. Even if you’re not thinking about your style, you’d be surprised at how much a simple change can boost your self-confidence and sense of beauty. Utilizing makeup and flattering clothing is one way to enhance your natural beauty, but changing your hair is a simple way to alter your appearance and mood dramatically.
Hair is perhaps our greatest accessory.
It can constantly change and be manipulated while still maintaining resiliency and good health. If you get a hair cut, you can always grow it out again; hair never has to be a permanent fixture. While cutting and reshaping your hair can enhance your facial structure, you may be a bit wary of committing to such a dramatic change. That’s why coloring hair is a great way to add drama to your look without sacrificing length.
Bright colors are very trendy now, and if you want to experiment with a splash of color as opposed to dousing your whole head, dip dying offers a simple and effective opportunity.
Unlike dyeing all your hair, dyeing your ends is quite easily achievable at home. It can be difficult to get even, thorough coverage of color with department store dyes for your entire head, but these dyes are quite easy to apply to small sections of the tips of your hair, and you don’t have to worry about retouching your roots.
Just find a color dye that you like, but keep your natural hair color in mind. If you have black or dark brown hair, you’ll need a lightening treatment in addition to the color.
Separate your hair into small sections and apply the bleaching agent to the tips of your hair.
Cover the sections with foil and wait until the dark hair has turned a light blonde. You can now dye the blonde hair the color of your choice. Reapply the foil and allow your hair to process before rinsing it out.
After you’re done processing your hair, it’s important to condition thoroughly. The ends of our hair tends to be the driest. Using a leave in conditioner will also help keep your hair imbued with moisture.
As the hair grows, or the color starts to fade, you can do simple touch ups, or just cut the ends off if you no longer want the color. If you’re still not comfortable with the idea of doing your own coloring, you can always go to a salon. If you have a particular color scheme in mind, bring a sample so that you get the results you want.
Dip dyeing is way to incorporate a bold edge to your style without overdoing it.
You can still look professional and chic with flaming blue hair, and this is the way to go about it. If you’re feeling particularly bold, you can mix and match different hues. If you’ve got the guts to rock the entire rainbow, you should go for it. We only live once after all, so why not make the most of our hair before it turn gray and recedes. A fresh looking new hairstyle will permeate our soul with eternal youth.
