Hair Chalking Tutorial: Perfect Pastel Locks for Spring

Posted April 17, 2014 by in Beauty

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.

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.

Final Look!

To remove the hair chalk, just shampoo!
