The best dye to use is Manic Panic. Their website is manicpanic.com. They even have little bleaching kits, perfect for dip-dying your tips. I used to bleach and dye my hair a different color every month when I was in high school. (my hair is hot pink and black in my senior picture) I have tried almost every semi-permanent metallic dye and that’s definitely what you see pictured above. The colors look like After Midnight Blue (dark blue), Bad Boy Blue (light blue), Hot Hot Pink (dark pink), and Cotton Candy Pink (light pink), all by M-P. I hope this helps.
TOOLS: highlighting comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach with the appropriate volume (always seek a professional when using bleach), light pink color, dark pink color, light blue, dark blue, clear gloss.
Step 1 Highlight the tips of the hair using hair bleach with the correct volume. I lightened the bottom 3 inches of Lauren’s hair, taking it as light as possible without causing any damage. As you can see above, I like to “feather” on the bleach. Painting a jagged line makes it blend better.
Step 2 Fold up your foil and let it process until it reaches a pale blonde. Use the appropriate heat if necessary.
Step 3 Shampoo and lightly condition bleach out of the hair.
Step 4 Blow hair completely dry. If it’s still wet, it will soak up less color.
Step 5 Place the hair on a foil. Imagine the bleached out part being split into 3. You’re going to leave the top 1/3 blonde.
Step 6 Next, paint the light blue (or whatever color you choose) on the entire bottom 2/3.
Step 7 Paint the very tips (or bottom 1/3) using the darker version of that color. It should look almost feather like. Be sure to blend. Last, rinse out the color. I highly suggest washing them out one piece at a time and towel drying well so the colors don’t bleed into each other. If they do, you may see a “marbleizing” effect. I love when the colors all swirl together like that, but if you’re looking to keep them more defined,...
