It’s officially spring and I so excited! I wanted something to brighten my day just a little and make me feel springy… So I broke out the hair chalk. This summer, hair chalking was pretty big, but I had trouble getting it to look the way I wanted it to.
To start you will need:
Pastel chalk – not oil pastels, because they will stain your hair, just pastel chalk which you can find in the art section of your local craft store.
Water – In a cup or spray bottle. I prefer a cup, it’s easier to work with.
Heat Source – A straightener, curling iron or crimper, depending on what look you’re going for.
Step One: Pick the portion of your hair that you would like to color … then get that section wet with your water.
Step Two: With your chalk, color your hair. Make sure to go down and not go up or sideways because it will make your hair supper tangled.
Step Three: Seal with your heat source. I used a flat-iron today, but you could use a curling iron or crimper. It just seals the chalk so it doesn’t come off on your clothes.
Tip – your hair will feel very dry so I recommend rubbing some “leave in” conditioner or hair moisturizer after you chalk it and let it dry. This is optional so it will work without it just as well.
Have a fabulous and fashionable day!
