dip-dyed dreams









Today I am having major hair envy. I have been sat my whole lunch hour just scouring through beautiful pictures of pastel dip-dyed hair. The conclusion? I NEED IT. My hair is dip-dyed but with blonde as opposed to the pretty colours I so desire. I think I am going to go for something similar to the third picture from the top, but maybe less blue and more lilac. I'm absolutely loving this trend at the minute but I'm also scared that it will be a nightmare to remove once I'm over it. What do you guys think of pastel dip-dyed hair? If anyone has done it and has any tips then please let me know, I would be extremely grateful!

    1. Oo thats interesting! I'm doing it to my own hair though but it's a cool idea if you wanted something less permanent :) xx

  2. I've got pastel pink hair at the moment (there's a post about it on my blog if you're interested). I'd use semi permenant - a brand like Directions or Stargazer and dilute (with conditioner) a well pigmented shade to make it pastel :) I've done lilac before too :) You just need as light blonde hair as possible! It washes out relatively quickly, as pastels are pale, but I just mix a bit into my contitioner everytime I wash my hair to keep the colour up! xx

    1. Thank you this really helps! I think I'm going to need to re-ombre my hair blonde before I do it as it's not quite as blonde as I would like at the minute. Will definitely check out your blog, thanks! xx

  5. oh the 6th one is my favourite by far! LOVE IT! i dip dyed my hair last year usin la riche directions. i put my hair into two plaits and just put the dye on the hair below the hairband (that wasn't not part of the plait!) using my my hands & a highlight/tint brush from superdrug. :) oohhh and i also wrapped tin foil around it to keep the colour in! long process but I'm pretty sure it made the colour brighter! xo

    1. Thanks for the tips sweetie! Think I'm going to get something semi-permanent to start with, not sure I dare take the plunge straight away hehe I get my hair dip-dyed by the hairdresser though as I'm terrible and would probably ruin my whole head :P xx
