How are you? I was going out for dinner last night with a bunch of friends and needed to spice up my outfit a little. It was, rainy, windy, gloomy outside and I was going to wear a black outfit. Since most of you know I love color so I had to add some to my look. What better way then doing so with my hair. I’ve been raving about pink her for quite some time now and between being a little scared and a little lazy I’ve procrastinated for quite some time. However, last night I dyed my hair pink, ombre style and I absolutely love it!!!!
What do you think? Do you like it? Well, if you do I will tell you how I did it and how you can do it too. This seems to be the latest trend for this summer and spring.
Ombre hair is the trend that won’t stop trending. However, it has now gone from just natural shades to more fun pastel and bright colors. Now colored ombre hair has become a mainstream trend since Lauren Conrad dyed her tips.
Kevin Murphy was ahead of the game when he tinted the beautiful Abbey Lee for this Vogue shoot last year and now he has commercially released his hair pigments. Color Bug is like a type of shadow for your hair, allowing you to get in on the ombre hair trend but without having to commit. Yes, ladies this color washes out when you decide to wash your hair which I think is the most amazing part about it.
Color Bug is available in pink, purple and orange and Kevin Murphy shows you how easy it is to use in this video here. So is it really that easy in real life. I wanted to try it out so I ordered the pink colorbug sine I love pink.
|Color Bug application – Tip: wear gloves or wash your hands quickly!|
If you have disposable gloves then start by putting them on because you’ll hands will get a little dirty. I didn’t have any so I just made sure to wash my hands right after I applied the color and it was fine the color washed right of.
You can apply the color of your choice quite lightly for a washed out look or keep adding more for a vibrant pink look. Gently rub the colour through the ends of your hair for an even finish. I thought it would be harder to apply but it took to my hair really easily. I picked random strands of hair and just applied the color. I played around with it till I liked the result. Since it comes in a solid powder form like an over-sized eye shadow I sprayed some hair spray on at the end to make the color stick.
Color Bug does exactly what it says on the box. It’s a bit messy but loads of fun and a great way to dip your hair into the ombre trend without having to commit. You can use one color or mix the different colors, let your creativity run wild.
You can find them at any salon that carries Kevin Murphy (using the salon locator on their website http://www.kevinmurphy.com.au or if you don’t have any nearby, they are available on eBay from various trusty sellers here. They come in pink, orange and purple. I think the orange one would be my next choice.
Let me know what you think and if you would try it out or not? If you do posts some pics I would love to see the different results and ways it can be done!
