::Hair:: My First Attempt @ Chalking

 If you have been on Pinterest for any length of time, you have probably seen hair chalking. I was instantly intrigued and thought it was a perfect way to change things up a bit. I went to Jo-Ann's and bought these soft pastels. All you need is chalk, hairspray, rubber gloves, and a water bottle. You'll need the gloves if you don't want your fingers stained.

My hair was already curled when I did the chalking so I took a few strands and sprayed them with a water bottle to get them pretty wet. I twisted the hair and took the chalk, rubbing it all over my hair until I got the desired color saturation, I only did the ends as I like that look. When first applied, it looks darker than it will end up since the chalk is wet.

I took a blow dryer to it to get it mostly dry and then I lightly combed through it. Chalk went every where at this point, beware! Once it was semi-combed through, I curled it and sprayed it to keep the color from going on everything. I wasn't going out anywhere and I was just playing with this to see how it works. T colors came out so vibrant. I can't wait to try this for a night out!

Final look:

Have you guys tried it?? Good news---tomorrow is FRIDAY!

  1. Hey Mere! Thanks for posting that you've made a move. I was wondering where you've been! I'm following this blog now (which is really cute btw). Should I delete Idle Banter from my blog roll?

    1. Hey Noelle! I've had a lot going on lately and haven't been posting much in general. I think it's time for a blog that is not just fashion/outfit focused, one that is more "me". I'm probably not going to be posting anymore on the the other one so it makes sense to remove it. Thanks for the following!!! :-)

  2. Yay!! New blog! Looking forward to your posts. :)

  3. I've never heard of this before but I love the way it looks! So fun!!
