Color faded dip dye, get the look!

This mermaid-y hair look is something out of a lonely sea captains acid dream. It makes my mouth water. It is an orgy of color against a natural canvas. Contrast to the max, and a water-works explosion on the head. I could go on forever in this sea of tropical splendor.

I’m feeling to dreamy right now to write it all down, but you are in luck! I have made you a video. And I will share with you my photos. This is a divine color knowledge whispered from my mouth to your ear. It’s okay if you share it. It is too good not to share.

The cut is HTHG’s Perfect layers in just one chop, with a couple embellishments as seen in this new video.

Here is how to do this color faded dip dye look….

To begin with, you will need your razor, and your DIY coloring tools and 3 hair bands.

You will also need some bleach and 20 v developer, and 2 colors of your choice. I used Special Effects Fishbowl and Blue Haired Freak.

Here is the video!

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!

    That looks awesome! I’m letting my hair grow out again after having a stack cut in the back. I’ve always wanted those type of layers that you gave to her in that video. I have really fine hair and can never seem to get a good style for long hair with such fine hair. It looks limp and greasy when it gets long. With the stacked cut it looked cute but it was cold in the winter. I also hear that if you always put your hair up in a pony tail when its long then you may as well get a short hair cut. I’m torn. I want long hair and everyone seems to say I look good with it long. But I like the stacked cut, but it costs too much for upkeep.

    I wish you lived near me in NH so I could get your opinion!

    Great job!

    I love this hair! I already have blue/turquoise bangs currently, but I used to have all blue/turquoise hair about a year ago. Now I’m gonna bleach my hair blonde and thinking about dip dying the tips like this girl, but I’m worried how my hair will looks with blue bangs AND blue ends. Does this girl have any pictures with her hair styled differently? I’m just wondering so I can know beforehand. Thank youuu.
