One of the biggest trends to come from the Spring runway season was not just clothing, it was also pastel-colored hair.
Since pastels are one of the hottest summer wardrobe essentials, it’s easy to see how this trend carried over into hair as well.
Pastel hair was used in the stylings of designers such as Thakoon and Narciso Rodriguez, known for their signature and distinctive style.
NOT GOING AWAY
This trend moved down from the runway to mainstream fashion and has been around for months.
It’s a fun way to try new risks and many girls and women who want a break from their traditional hair color are giving this new look a try.
Hot Hues hair chalk is an easy way to make a statement on Friday night and then back to work on Monday with the same classic locks.
The impermanence of this trend is probably why it’s sticking around. Many companies sell kits for hair chalking and it’s easy to do at home.
SET UP THE AREA
Chalking is fairly messy, especially for beginners.
Always put down a towel or cloth to catch any chalk that falls on the floor and wear a robe while chalking.
This will cut down on the amount of chalk that ends up on clothes later. It’s also a good idea to wear clothing that is similar in color to the hair chalk.
Chalk does fall off during the day and it’s much less noticeable if it’s a similar color to clothing.
DO IT CORRECTLY
While hair chalking isn’t permanent, it’s always a good idea to know the best way to apply the color.
When choosing to use hair chalk, choose a strand of hair and then twist while applying chalk.
The texture created from the twisting hair makes the chalk release more pigment, giving a brighter color.
After chalking each strand, it’s important to brush out the hair. While most of the chalk will stick to the hair, some small chunks or powder can fall out immediately after doing this.
By brushing out the hair, this ensure that it doesn’t get on clothing later on.
KNOW YOUR HAIR TYPE
Chalking technique varies differently depending on hair color. Natural blonds should not wet their hair before using the chalk.
This will make the chalk stain their light hair and it will become semi-permanent which is not only embarrassing, will also require a salon visit to remove.
If a mistake is made, the hair chalk will stick around for a few washes but eventually fade on its own.
For anyone who wants their hair color to stay around a little longer, adding water will achieve this.
For brunettes and redheads, it’s actually recommended to use water. Darker hair needs more pigment in order for the color to show up.
Add water and then double the pigment, especially for anyone who has especially dark hair.
Mist the strands using a spray bottle and then add the chalk. The chalk won’t stain darker hair so water is safe to use when the dye needs to go away the next time.
TRY MIXING IT UP
While it’s always a good idea to start with one color, after the essentials are mastered, consider branching out and combining colors.
Doing two colors on one-strand is always fun and gives the appearance of tie-dyed hair.
When using two colors, be sure that they don’t mix. Complimentary colors look great side by side, but when mixed, tend to form an ugly brown or grey color.
It may be necessary to practice a few times in order to get this right.
COMBINE WITH A HAIRSTYLE
Chalking can be done with hair that’s left down, but is especially fun with an updo.
It’s actually ideal to style hair that has been chalked as this will cut down on the amount of chalk that gets on the outfit.
The runway models featured chalked hair in top-knots, buns, and side-braids. A splash of color can bring the right hair style to the next level, so being adventurous is always a good idea.
Each set includes 4 colours: Hot pink, fiery fuchsia, neon green and electric blue
TAKE HAIR CARE SERIOUSLY
While hair chalking is a fun trend today, it can be damaging if done too often. The powder pigment actually dries up the natural moisture of the hair.
Use it sparingly and save for nights out with friends or special occasions. After you’re getting ready to wash out the hair chalk, brush your hair first with a soft, natural brush.
This should remove as much pigment as possible. Then shampoo using a clarifying shampoo.
Most hair chalks contain a natural ingredient gum arabic that helps the chalk stick to the hair. It’s a safe product, but a clarifying shampoo will remove it easily.
Finally, be sure to use a conditioner. This is a must even if you don’t normally condition in order to replenish any moisture lost.
