- Soft pastel chalk. We picked this giant set up from a local craft store for about $5!
- A small spray bottle filled with water
- A flat iron or curling iron
- Rubber gloves
- A old towel or t-shirt you don't mind getting color on.
Step 1: Spray a 1-inch section of hair with water. You don't need to soak the entire strand, just go as high up as you want the color to be.
Step 2: Color on your hair with one of the pastels. I recommend choosing about three hair chalking colors, and putting one at a time in your hair. Start with the lightest shade first, since, as you can see, the color gets all over your gloves and you'll end up with a muddied version of the same hue throughout if you go dark to light.
Step 3: Wait for your hair to air dry. This is the hardest part -only because you'll anxious to see the final look!
Step 4: Using the curling or flat iron, go over each colored strand. This sets the colors in your hair, so it will last longer. Then brush and style however you normally would!
Depending on your hair the color can last between one day and a week. The best part about this technique is that it works for girls with darker hair too, although the color is much more subtle. A cool idea for your NYE getaway or even your end of year dance.
