Your lifestyle, your quirk
The change in seasons is often a good time to make a few changes to your appearance by trying out some trends and styles you may have been thinking about. If you have been contemplating doing a little something different with your hair color, one fun idea is hair chalking.
Rainbow tresses have been popping in and out of fashion all year long; some fashionistas have also gone with a full head of brightly colored hair. If you have been dying to try this out but can’t or don’t want to permanently dye your hair for one reason or another, there are several ways to get brightly colored locks. You may have seen sprays and gels, but chalking is one more easy way to dress up your locks with bold and bright colors without the commitment.
I think this is such a cool idea, and although I like it on other folks, it’s just not me. I may give it a whirl for Halloween if I come up with a costume that requires it. One idea that might be cool for the change of seasons if you live in a seasonal area would be to mimic the leaves and use shades of orange, red, and yellow.
Like most of the other temporary hair coloring, the chalking process can be done at home…or I am sure you could easily find a salon to do it for you. I think the old DIY (maybe with help from a friend) sounds like the most fun. In addition to saving you the cost of a stylist, at home you’re in control of what you might like as far as effect, you can keep your masterpiece undercover until you’re ready to be seen, and you have easy access to a quick shampoo, if necessary.
The process seems pretty easy to do, but you definitely want to read through or watch a video before you begin the actual chalking. Although this is temporary and there are no chemicals or traditional hair dye, there is still some danger as far as protecting your clothes and living space. You’ll also want to find out how different hair colors will take the chalk, as well as what to look for in the chalk you use.
