It’s about this time of year that I start wanting to change up my hair. To try something new and fun. Lucky for me Jesy Almaguer and I have been chatting, and her portfolio holds some of the most whimsical ideas for getting a beautiful party look. She, and a handful of talented stylists, have given up their secrets for a few festive spring hair styles that bring a punch of awesome to your fashion this spring.
This first tutorial seems perfect for the upcoming week of egg dying and pastel wearing. Instead of dipping an egg – why not dip your hair!?! I am a complete scaredy cat when it comes to hair dye, but this purple – I might really be able to get into. It is fun, festive, and TEMPORARY! Perfect for next months big birthday party.
How to make temporary purple hair dye:
1) You must start with clean hair. To ensure the best hold, wash with shampoo, then baking soda, and rinse well.
2) The formula for easy temporary hair dye is to mix one packet of unsweetend Kool-Aid with, 1/4 cup hair conditioner and 1 tablespoon white vinegar To get this pretty color purple – mix 1/3 cup hair conditioner with 1 packet of blue, with half a packet red and 1 tablespoon yellow Kool-Aid, and a little more than 1 tablespoon white vinegar.
3) Cover entire head and let sit in hair for 60 minutes. Wrap hair up in a plastic bag and clip to save your clothes from being dyed as well.
4) Rinse well and style. A few big curls on top will give this dyed look just enough formality to make you party ready this spring.
