The Easy Streak

This is your basic Streak Technique. For those that want a chunk of color in their hair. In the video, I use bleach to remove the color from the hair so that it can be re-colored with a bright rainbow color. Please note that this technique can certainly be used with any hair dye, darker, lighter, brighter.

I created this video to prepare you for my Feather Color Series that will begin in late May, but encourage anyone who has ever wanted to spice up their hair with a splash of controlled color that looks like it has been professionally done, instead of like you made a mistake while trying to color your own hair:)

There are just a couple key points to bleaching a streak of your hair that are important to remember.

  • Always use foil, to seperate it from the rest of the hair and prevent the color from bleeding over.
  • Separate the hair into workable slices so that it processes evenly.

If you are curious about DIY home-hair coloring, I highly recommend using DIY hair color by Madison Reed, which Resorcinol-Free.

If you purchase a Madison Reed Radiant Color Kit, you will receive not only the colors of hair colors your choice, but also the necessary tools to apply it. The entire line is designed for the DIY hair colorer! And if you need to tone in between coloring, be sure to check out their Color Reviving Gloss to refresh and revive your hair.

Also, I recommend a shopping stop at Beauty Store Depot for all your other DIY hair cutting and coloring tools to fill your toolkit!

    Hi… I am going to color chunk my son’s hair but he wants his whole head black first then color the chunks of blue. Should I color the whole head first or color the chunks first? His natural color is dark brown. Thanks!:-)

      definitely put the chunk in foil, and apply the black color around it while its lightening. Bleaching out black is nearly impossible. Make sure your foils are secure by watching this…
      Best of luck! Id love to see a before and after!
