DIY Coloured hair highlights using Chalk.

Photobucket Photobucket

These temporary chalk highlights are something I've read about on a few blogs now. Most recently Gem Fatale's Style Blog! Which is AMAZING by the way, could read it for hours. Anyhoo decided to jump on the bandwagon and give it a go for myself!

All you need to do is soak your desired colour of Chalk in some warm water for 5/10 minutes, and just run the wet Chalk through your hair! I found this quite tricky to do, I had to try a few different ways before I got the simplest way to run the chalk through my hair! Luckily because my hair is so long, I was able to hold strands of hair out on to some paper, and just run the Chalk over my hair.
You're left with quite a wet, tangled peice of hair, (Or my long hair was) which I then put the hair dryer on, using a large barrel blow dry brush to get it dry quickly. This hurts! My hair was very matted and it pulled at my scalp quite a bit but I was willing to put up with it. I used Red, Blue, and Purple in my hair, and when it dried I was left with gorgeous faded blue pink colours.


Obviously, this is going to be to everyones taste, but I've often wondered what my hair would look like with something a bit more funky through it rather than plain old natural colours. Anyway, colours dip dyes seem to be getting increasingly popular, so I wouldn't be surprised if this takes off a little bit more! I'm hoping this washes out after one go like everybody claims it does, but I shall keep you all updated!



Will you be trying out this Chalk trend?! Let me know what you think of this, because I would love to know!

  1. This is gorgeous!! :) It's a pity I have dark hair because this probably wouldn't show up on my hair

  2. this is so clever, I wish I had blonde hair so I could I do this! x

  3. Why have I never heard of this before?! I am so out of sync with the entire world! I love

  4. I love it, never heard of using chalk! Bit gutted I have dark hair so couldn't really try it xx

  5. I love this I have tried this with chalk and pastels. Bright colors work for dark hair as well, its just a bummer that it tends to come off on clothing.

  6. I've always been curious to try this, and it looks lovely on your hair, I love how the colours have turned out. I may have to dig out my old chalk pastels :)

  13. would this work with stawberry blonde?

  14. Thank you for this! I've been wondering whether to get baby pink highlights in my hair after seeing Katy Perry's bob with the pink colour so this will help me to try it out without the dedication of hair dye!

  15. The bubblegum colors look good on you! Have you tried other colors after this? As for me, I prefer playing with shades of pink. And don’t worry, chalk coloring normally only lasts a couple of shampoo sessions. But if you want to clear it right away, you can use dish soap on the colored part.
