I'm gonna show you how to do HAIR CHALKING.
This is not new, it's been around for a while, but I thought I'd do a "hair chalking" tutorial for you guys to inspire you and have fun with!
So watch the tutorial below!
WHAT YOU NEED:
1. Soft Pastel Chalks -I got mine at Michael's craft for under $5.
***DO NOT use Oil Pastels- they will stain your hair and everything else!
3. Protective Gloves- either latex gloves, latex free ((ofcourse) gloves, or even dish washing rubber gloves)
4. flat iron or curling iron to seal in the color
Now let's see how it's done:
*The chalk might come off on your shirt- you can try misting the hair with hair spray to seal it in even more.
*Do not brush your hair too much after you chalk, it will come off on your brush and get everywhere.
*Do NOT put any wax, styling creams or anything on the "chalked hair" as it will make a huge, greasy mess!
*If any chalk comes off on your flat iron or curling iron, it wipes off easily.
*If you have blonde hair, you can skip the step of getting your hair wet- if you do, it may make the color last longer than you'd like!
*Have fun trying all kinds of colors, 2 or 3 starting with the light then going over it with darker colors.
*Blues, greens, reds and pink really show up on dark hair.
*If your hair is light, all colors will show up great!
*The chalking can be pretty drying to your hair, so make sure you condition your hair really well after you wash this out!
*This looks really cool when you braid hair, the different colored strands will look beautiful braided!
I still cannot believe how how well this colored my hair!
It is so fun! Wait til you try it!
And if you sleep in it- wait til you see how pretty your pillowcase looks in the morning! (but it washes out, don't worry)
Post below the pictures of your "hair chalking" or tweet them to me, I'd love to see!!!
