Spontaneous Colored Tips!

I've been feeling spontaneous lately, so I finally decided to dye my tips! I was so inspired when Lauren Conrad did blue and pink on her tips and I've been wanting to do it ever since. I'm planning on cutting my hair in a week or two, so it will just be temporary, but it's definitely a change for me. A lot of people probably wouldn't expect something like this from me, but since it's for a short time, why not give it a try? I got a great reaction from all my friends, and even though it hasn't totally sunk in that part of my hair is blue, pink, and purple, I'm slowly getting used to feeling like I have mermaid hair haha.

Dying my tips was relatively easy too. I mainly just followed the tutorial from The Beauty Department. I got all the supplies at Sally Beauty Salon for about $40 and then my friend kindly spent 2 hours working on about 12 different streaks. First, you need to bleach the tips, then wash them out and then put the color on, and you're going to want a few different shades of whatever color you want so that you can get an ombre-esque look. Click here for the full detailed instructions!

   
The colors I used, and the two test pieces I did the night before.
 
The final turn-out!

What do you think about colored tips? Have you or will you ever try this with your hair?

  32. So nice! I love dyeing my hair and you're lucky you're already blonde so the colors come out a bit easier (or at least require less bleach)
