Would You Dare Rock Pastel Hair?

1 2 3 4

Dip-dyes, chalking and pastels, oh my! Pastel tresses are one of the hottest hair trends of the seasonI’ve been seeing cotton candy-colored coifs on everyone from Katy Perry to Kelly Osbourne to Kate Bosworth, and now it’s got me wanting some hot pinks and prominent purples to liven up these boring ol’ locks! From dip-dying to colorful chalking, I’ve got the 411 on how to take those tresses from bland ‘n’ boring to bright ‘n’ beautiful!

Colorful Chalking

As seen on Mad Men beauty January Jones, chalking is one of the easiest forms of temporary color, as your strands are colored with actual chalk, not dye. The bright hue’s guaranteed to wash out after shampooing, plus chalking is very inexpensive and easy to apply. Regular store-bought coloring chalk can be used on hair, but those who prefer an actual hair chalking product can say hello to Color.Bug by Kevin Murphy. Offering fantastic coverage with playful colors like oranges, purples and pinks, Color.Bug was inspired by the vibrant pigmented wigs of one Ms. Marie Antoinette. This one-of-a kind shadow color chalks stick to your hair, adding extra texture and body to your tresses!

    You see, a fully evolved man can handle a woman having two opposing personalities in one body.
    Instead, try the married colleague you put in long
    hours with. But consider this: what made him a womanizer in the first place is most probably the
    long line of ladies waiting in line ready to fall at the crook of a finger because they think that they will be ‘the one’ he remains with forever.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative
    and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    everything. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    Everything said made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however what
    if you added a title to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Would You
    Dare Rock Pastel Hair? | Shecky’s is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post
    titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a
    picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
