Hair Chalking Tutorial: Perfect Pastel Locks for Spring

Posted 7 months ago by

Hair chalking is still super trendy these days, and so the Broke & Chic team decided to make a short and sweet tutorial on how to chalk your hair in pretty pastel colors for Spring!

Of course, you can chalk your hair in any colors you’d like, but pastel hair will make you stand out — every girl wants it. The best part: hair chalking isn’t permanent and it works on all types of hair: from straight to curly, and blonde to black.

If you’re still having trouble, watch our video!

1. Gather all your supplies

  • Soft pastels
  • Water bottle
  • Clips
  • Gloves
  • Comb
  • Blow dryer
  • Flat iron

2. Pick your colors

We decided on these pretty pastels. If your soft pastel set doesn’t have any pastel colors, chalk the hair with white first and then immediately after, go over it with a purple, red, blue or yellow.

3. Section off your hair

4. Spray with water and chalk

Spray a 1-inch thick strand with water. Then, grab the chalk color of your choice and rub the strand until it’s fully saturated.

5. Blow dry

Blow dry the strand for about 20 seconds.

6. Flat Iron

Flat iron the strand using the lowest setting. This dries and sets the chalk into your hair.

7. Section off top part of hair

Once you finish the top of the hair, section it off so you can focus on the bottom.

For more detailed instructions, watch our video below!

Final Look!

To remove the hair chalk, just shampoo!

Rainbow Hair is Taking Over Hollywood

Posted 3 years ago by

Off-beat hair colors have been taking the red carpet by storm with stars such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Kate Bosworth, Jaime King and the most dramatic of them all…Katy Perry.

Katy Perry has been rocking the all over blue do’ ever since her split with comedian Russell Brand. Was this her way of expressing sadness or needing a change? Or did she just take her smurfette role a little to far?

Back in the day, nail and lip color other than red or pink were looked at as taboo. Now we have cosmetic lines such as EssieLime Crime and Urban Decay coming out with all sorts of crazy colors that have become acceptable over the years. In my short life time, blue nail polish was something you would never wear to a job interview. Now it wouldn’t even raise an eye brow.

Will this be the same with hair color? Will we see purple and pink hair just as often as we see blonde and brunette? I always wondered what the fashion of the future had in store for us. Maybe this is it.
