Let's do something fun

It is summer time and you still have the same old boring hairstyle.

So, maybe you thought about it and you finally want to take the plunge. You want fun hair; you want funky hair; you want to color your hair with the new "in style" hair style that has been seen all over the place. You want to tip the ends of your hair with fun colors!

Unfortunately, you don't have any clue how to do it, and going to the salon can be a bit expensive. So what is a person to do?

Fortunately, with a little guidance and maybe a little help from a friend, you can get some fun hair for the summer, and it doesn't have to break the budget!

What are you going to need....

Warning: As a professional hairstylist and a trained cosmetologist, I have been taught techniques for working with hair. Therefore, the user assumes all risk and liability. These tips are a means of guidance. When using chemicals, there are many hazards, including allergic reactions, blindness and of course, damaging the hair. However, for best results you should always seek the help of a professional.

Chemicals:

  • A hair bleach kit (Chlorox Bleach and/or Peroxide WILL NOT work!)
  • A Semi-permanent hair color of your choice (We used Beyond the Zone Color Jamz - which can be bought at Sally's Beauty Supply)
  • Shampoo and Conditioner

Tools

  • A brush/comb
  • Two rubber bands
  • A plastic hair coloring bowl and brush
  • Gloves
  • Aluminum foil
  • Timer
  • Plastic Hair Cape
  • Towel
  • Blow dyer

Now that you have everything you need, it is time to get ready to have some fun!

First things first...

If you want the color to show up, you need to lighten the hair first. If the hair is already blonde, this step can be avoided.

Rinse the bleach out

Once the bleach has processed, you should have a nice blonde color. The lighter the blonde, the more intense the color.

Rinse....

Once the color has sat in the hair for 10-20 minutes (or longer for a more intense color!), rinse it out until the water runs clear.

Let's get started

  1. Get a comfortable chair for the person to sit in and wrap them in a hair cape or a towel. Remember you are working with chemicals. If any of the bleach or color gets onto their skin or their clothes, it can be damaging. Not only can it stain, but it can also burn! Safety first! Make sure you take these precautions so you don't make a mess!
  2. Next thing you need to do is part the hair straight down the middle and braid each side. The amount of hair left at the end is the amount of hair you will be tipping. So, obviously, the more hair you leave at the end of the braid, the more fun color you will have at the bottom of you hair. In addition, this technique will only work on those whose hair is long enough to braid. Secure the ends of the braid with rubber bands. I prefer to use rubber bands because I can throw them out when I am done.
  3. Now put on some disposable rubber gloves. I would also suggest removing any rings or jewelry you are fond of just to avoid possible damage. You are working with chemicals and you want to protect your skin and your stuff.
  4. Mix together the bleach according to the package directions and apply to the ends of your hair. Use aluminum foil underneath the hair to keep things clean and protected. Try to cover all the hair evenly with the bleach and do not go above the rubber band. Remember, whatever hair the bleach does not touch, will not lift. This means if you don't spread the hair out, you will be left with darker spots in the middle of your ponytail. So, be sure to spread the hair out and get every single piece.
  5. Watch the bleach carefully as the color lifts out. Every person's hair is a little different so the amount of time it takes for the bleach to lift will depend on how dark the hair is when you started and how strong the bleach is that you purchased. In the picture, the bleach was left on for about 20 minutes. This was also professional quality bleach with a fast developer. Regardless of what you use, the key is - PAY ATTENTION. Any chemicals used in the hair can be very damaging. If the bleach is left on too long, your hair will break and instead of fun colors, you will be left with a chemical haircut.
  6. Once the bleach has lightened the hair to the desired level, go ahead and wash it out. Keep the braids in tact as you will be adding the color next and will want to leave them in to help guide you.
  7. Towel dry the hair. Beyond the Zone Color Jamz is applied to damp hair. However, depending on the color product you use, always check the directions on the product for best results. There are a variety of different colors out there and each color will produce different results. My favorite color to use is the Beyond the Zone Color Jamz Raspberry Kamikazie.
  8. Now put those gloves back on. I prefer to use disposable gloves because I can take them off in between steps and throw them out. When I go back to rinsing, I can just put on a new pair of gloves.
  9. Place more aluminum foil behind the hair and apply the color evenly. Make sure to cover all of the hair. If the color doesn't touch the hair, you will have uneven results.
  10. Fold the aluminum foil around the hair and let set for 10-20 minutes. For more intense results, leave on the hair for even longer.
  11. At this point, you can even add heat to the color in the foil packets. The heat will actually cause the hair cuticle to open up and accept the dye easier. Using heat may actually allow the color to stay in your hair longer. Remember, this is a semi-permanent hair color. That means it washes out. When applying the heat, hold the hair dryer at an angle, and blow the hot air up and down the foil packet. The aluminum will get hot so take precaution when you place this back down to avoid burning the person. In addition, it gets HOT. Take precaution when using the heat so you don't burn yourself.
  12. Once the color is applied, it becomes nothing more than a waiting game. Here you can allow your client to sit and read to pass the time or just chat for awhile. Just don't forget to set the timer.
  13. Once you have left the color on for the desired amount of time, it is time to wash it out. Put your gloves back on because the color will stain your hands. Rinse until the water runs clear.
  14. Once the water runs clear, take out the rubber bands.
  15. Wash the entire head with your shampoo of choice, and condition afterwards. I prefer to wash the hair with a luke-warm to cool water. The cold water will actually cause the hair cuticle to close, basically trapping the hair color inside. This will allow the color to stay in longer as well, so remember, a cold shower is good for your hair.
  16. Dry the hair with an old towel once you're done rinsing. Since this is a semi-permanent color, it will stain when wet. Chances are good, even though the water is running clear, their might still be some color left behind on the towel.
  17. Place an old towel on the person's shoulders. Put in some type of product in your hair, such as a heat protectant, hair mouse or a smoothing serum. This will protect your hair from any damage from the heat of the blow dryer. Now blow dry the ends of the hair until thoroughly dry. Feel free to leave the rest of your hair damp if you prefer not to blow dry hair in the first place, just make sure the ends with the color are very dry. The color will stain when wet, so be sure to keep your hair off your clothes and furniture at that time.
  18. Now you are ready to style and show off the new fun hair colors! Feel free to add a fun flower to your hair to bring out the pink tips (or whatever is your color of choice). Now that you have a funky new style for the summer, it is time to show it off!

Fun pink tips for the summer

Want to do something fun with your hair... how about pink tips!

What can you expect?

Of course, when you dye your hair, you have to be prepared for the consequences. First off, chemicals can be damaging to your hair. If the hair is not in healthy condition, the person must understand the risks they are taking by using these chemicals. And once again, I warn, for best results, seek out the help of a professional.

However, dying your hair can be fun. It can be a welcome change and a great way to really show off your personality!

Now what can you expect, other than the obvious compliments from being so bold to do something so fun with your hair!

1. The color is semi-permanent. I know I have said this before, and I am going to say this again! This will wash out. In fact, depending on how often you wash your hair, the fun color will begin to fade soon after you have done this and will be mostly gone within 1 to 2 weeks. Depending on the color you use will depend on the results but either way you look at this, it is going to be high maintenance!

2. It stains! Yes - you now have fun hair, but now your nice white shirt is fun colored as well and ruined. It should not stain if your hair is dry. But, if you do not dry your hair, the color may transfer to your clothing... or your couch. So just be careful. You can still have fun. Just don't do it with wet hair, especially within the first couple of days!

3. Bleach is permanent! This seems obvious to some, but while jumping out on a ledge and doing something fun, you might not really think about this. Bleaching will pull the pigment out of your hair. Therefore, the only way to get rid of the bleach is to cut it off. If you like this style and you want to stick with it for awhile, then by all means, have some fun. But, if you are attached to your long hair and cutting off a couple of inches doesn't appeal to you, remember, you will be stuck with the blondish tips long after you decide to stop putting the color in them!

4. Breaking the rules! Your hair is wild and fun and carefree. However, not all employers may feel this is appropriate. Be sure before doing this, there isn't specific dress codes for your workplace. Also, if you are searching for employment, you might want to avoid this style as well. Potential employers may judge you based off your hairstyle. While it may not be fair, they could potentially use it against you. You should always maintain a professional look when going to job interviews. Therefore, be sure this is something you can do with your hair before you do it!

Want more fun....

So now that you have pink tips in your hair, you are probably wondering what is next!

Maybe you like the pink and you just want to stick with that for awhile. That is fine. When it starts washing out or you want to intensify the color, go ahead and put more pink in.

Now you don't have to braid the hair again. (Unless your hair is blonde. If your hair is dark, the semi-permanent hair will only really show on the spots that have been bleached!) All you need to do is spritz the hair down with some water (remember, the color is applied to damp hair - depending on the color brand you use!) Put aluminum foil behind the strands of hair and add more color. Easy as that! (Although if you have a friend to assist you, it will be a lot faster and cleaner process!) Wait the time and then rinse like you would have when you first put the color in your hair.

But... what if the pink just isn't your cup of tea anymore. What if you want something crazier... different... How about trying this on for style!

Add teal to the pink...

If you are looking for something different, trying adding a variety of colors!

Different colors all the way around

Each piece is separated to keep the colors from mixing before they are washed out. The result was a rainbow of fun. Imagine all the possibilities!

After having the pink in the hair for a couple of weeks, pink was getting old. Not that it still wasn't a fun look, but it was just time to try something new.

So, what we did was add a bit of teal here and there, freshened up the pink and and packaged them all in little tiny foil packets.

The result was a flurry of color... the picture of the hair you see at the top of this article and below are the results.

Just be prepared, the color may not turn out as intended. We should remember from our elementary school days that mixing colors get other colors. So, if the previous color wasn't entirely washed out, you might end up with something you weren't expecting!

However, if you are open to trying new things, the sky is the limit! Heck, maybe you can color code your hair for the holidays! Orange for the fall... Red and Green for Christmas... Purple and Pink for Easter! How fun would that be?

Multi-color fun

This is done with the teal and the pink. The picture however, doesn't make it easy to see the variety in colors and it looks much better in person!

Hair Color and Kids

Hair styles are a great way to express your personality. As children, most of the parents choose what is done to their child's hair. As a cosmetologist, I often see this struggle when the kids start to grow older and personalities start to change. There is often an argument as to how to do the hair... Is it up to the parents? Is it up to the person who has to wear it?

As a professional, I find it is better to let the children show their personality through their hair. After all, it isn't hurting anybody and as long as it is within reason (or dress code depending on schools), what does it really matter.

Now, as young girls get older, the issue of color may arise. Haircuts and color are two different things entirely. A haircut can be changed. However, color is permanent for the most part. That means parents who allow young children to color their entire head or add highlights, will also be dealing with the maintenance. This can get pricey.

That being said, tipping the ends of the hair is the perfect way to allow a younger girl to have color in her hair, but not do the damage that other color might do. It can also be more affordable because the color is at the ends, so you don't have to worry about the outgrowth. However, it can still be high maintenance as you constantly have to put the fun colors back in the hair to keep it popping.

As you can see, the girl in the picture above with the pink tips is rather young. She is only 10 years old. However, before she was allowed to do this, we had a discussion on what chemicals do to the hair. She knew this was going to be permanent and when she was done with the pink, it meant her hair would need to be cut. She thought about it and decided she still wanted the pink tips.

In her eyes, this was a great treat. She knew she would be getting a school haircut, so she at least got have some fun for the summer!

      As soon as my girls see this - I'll be taking a trip to Sally's! Maddy has been wanting to use the colored hair spray for fun but you can't really control where that goes so much. How adorable! Yeah I'd totally let them do this for fun!

      Great hub idea!!

      I LOVE this idea (although I think my hubby would hate it, so my daughter may not get to try it out this summer). Just dyeing the tips of the hair is a fun, relatively low-commitment way to enjoy bright color.

      @Real - This is super easy to do as well. I think... and I am not sure yet, that I might even let Abby have this for the beginning of school. Naturally though - I will probably end up cutting it off before picture day. I am not sure yet!

      I actually like this idea better than using the spray on kind in the can that you can get for Halloween. Part of the reason, this will stain when it is wet, but the other stuff is unpredicatable and makes a mess anywhere. You know - if I lived closer I would so totally do this for your girls! :)

      When mom showed me the picture of Abby yesterday I thought you had used Chalk for her hair. Now I know better. Abby looks so pretty and I am glad that you gave her the option of doing this with her hair for a little while! This was also a very interesting hub and even though I will not dye my hair anytime soon (especially pink) and will not have any kids doing so for a very long time, I still kept reading. I must say the writing in this hub was in good old fashion barbergirl ;-) style!

      @Brainy Bunny - The funny thing about this was one of my friends wanted this done to her hair so after a few weeks, my oldest daughter started saying how she would like this done. Well, when I first did this to our friend, she convinced me to do some pink highlights... after all, it does wash out. Well, her hair was too dark for it to really be seen so the only option was to bleach it out. When she asked me, I was hesitant because I know the cost of upkeep for color and how high maintenance it can be. But, when I asked my husband, he actually said go for it. Luckily, because I went to school for this, I don't have to pay someone else to do it! And she loves it. I think it looks awesome! :) Now too bad your hubby can't be convinced ;)

      @mythicalstorm273 - I don't think that I could pull off the look either but it sure fits Abby well. I love it on her. Unfortunately, now Bella wants it done to her hair as well. I might do it if I can find some purple to put in her hair but I hate to ruin her hair. I love the way it looks right now.

      Glad this kept your interest from the start and yes... I am bringing back good old fashioned barbergirl style.... what's next on the list you may ask... How to cut yourself a mullet! LOL

      Great fun hub. My son was telling his friends that he was going to give me an ultimatum. "Let me get a tattoo or I will dye my hair green". Then he said "Scratch that Mom will say,'Dye away' ". His friends were very impressed. I would much rather kids dye hair and forget the tattoos and piercing. All but the one who wants the tattoo have had blue hair at one time or another. :)

      I'm heading to Las Vegas in a few months and I really want to do something fun with my hair. This is a great idea! I'm a little concerned about the bleaching part, as my hair isn't very long, but maybe by then it will be longer and I can spare a couple of inches. I've been trying to find something to do that would be fun but wouldn't be long-lasting. Great hub!

      @Mhatter99 - What a fun color! If I was brave enough - I would definitely dye my hair green! Sadly, I prefer to live with traditional colors! As for eyebrows... I would stick away from those. I think eyesight is much better than any hair color out there. :)

      @tirelesstraveler - That is awesome. I bet he was kind of taken aback when you said "Go Ahead!" My daughter was pretty surprised when my husband said that she could have her hair dyed. She loves it and has been getting a lot of compliments on it as well! I think exploring different stuff with your hair is fun, as long as they are old enough to understand the consequences! :)

      Stacy Harris 4 years ago from Hemet, Ca

      @Crystal Tatum - Vegas sounds like such a blast and hopefully by the time you go you will have a few inches you can spare so you don't have to commit to the hairstyle if you don't want to. I will warn you though, if your hair isn't very blonde - bleach is a necessity to get the colors to show up. Otherwise it is just a waste of time. That does mean if you only want it temporarily, you will need to get a cut. But, the amount of color you put in your hair is up to you. So remember, if you want to trim an inch off soon, just put color in the bottom inch.

      As another suggestion, you can look into hair chalk. This is a temporary color that washes out immediately and supossedly shows up on any hair color. I haven't personally tried it, but I have seen a review from someone else. It does get messy, but if you want one day of fun it might be what you are looking for. Or at least it gives you another option. Either way - have fun in Vegas! :)

One being that when school starts it will be a distraction and she will be sent home. However, I think it is fun, especially for the summer. If people would watch what they say, they would have found out I plan on cutting my daughters hair before school starts. Now, I might just press the rules! Glad you liked this and maybe you will get a chance to try it someday! :)

As for the feathers, I have never really gotten into those although it seems I have seen so many that have! Maybe you will get a chance to try this soon! :) Bet your step daughter would love it on you!

      @Ebower - I love the pun! ha ha... I think the reason the braiding works so well is because it makes it look more natural when it falls. When I first did this on a friend it looked like fire. I love the effect. And I love that it doesn't look like a straight line across the back. Glad you enjoyed this!

      @Just Ask Susan - I was really excited to have girls because of all the girly stuff that I could do with them. Ironically, I ended up working in a barbershop and specializing in men's haircuts. I can do both, obviously, but I really enjoy barbering. But, I am glad I have my girls for when I want to do fun stuff with hair! :)

      @theraggededge - I wont' do it on my younger daughter because I am so attached to her beautiful hair. She really wants it done too but she won't let it get cut either because she wants to keep it long. I would suggest doing this a few weeks before getting a haircut. That way, you only need to put it on a few inches and then it can easily be cut off for a trim. Although with hair that long, I bet she wouldn't be up to cutting much off! I would be curious as to what she says about this.

      Cute idea for kids with long hair just to color the tips. That way if they do not like it or if the school they are attending has a rule against it, it will be easy enough to cut off. Doubt that I will be doing this at my age...did I say "doubt?" I mean absolutely I won't be doing this. Haha! Fun to read this hub and I am sure many others will enjoy it. Up and useful votes.

      My daughter absolutley loved having this done to her hair. I will admit though, she wasn't too careful of making sure it was pulled off her clothes when it was wet so she stained a few shirts... but I have to admit, it actually washed out very easy with a little oxyclean. I wouldn't do this too my hair either, but my friend has now had it done for several months and is still not sick of it! I think it looks cool but too picky about having everything match! LOL

      This looks like a lot of fun. My mom was as square as a box and never let me do anything fun with my hair. It was always long and one length. I liked it short and it would curl up by itself. I would have SO put pink tips in my hair if I could have. Great hub, Barbergirl! :) #6

      @TToombs08 - For me personally I have never been one for the maintenance of my own hair... but I do think this is really cool. However, I would have to buy a whole new warddrobe just to match my hair! :)
