You know that feeling when you get the perfect dye job, and you look in the mirror and see this new, stunning person staring back at you? And you step out into the world, strutting like a million bucks... plus interest? Then you might also know the dark side of a dye job. When the bleach has fried your hair, dried it out like scarecrow straw and wrecked your curl pattern past the point of salvation. It is possible, however, to nix the bratty bleach and go all out with color while leaving your pretty little strands perfectly intact. Enter the NuMe Hair Chalk. Available in six bright and bold hues, our hair chalk is ideal for those who want to enjoy all the fun of color without the lingering regret.
Using hair chalk is incredibly easy. This allows the chalk to cling to your hair better and ensures the color lasts longer. Then, select a section of hair and glide the chalk down the length of it. Start as high or as low as you want depending on the level of coverage you desire. You can run a brush or comb through your hair at this point to remove some of the fallout and prepare for another coat of chalk. Repeat the previous step for added color intensity. Once complete, it's best to seal in the color with heat, such as using the NuMe Classic Curling Wand or Megastar X, depending on the style you're going for.. Finish with a final spritz of the Freeze Please Finishing Hairspray, and you're done!
Now that you know the tips and tricks, all you need is a little hair inspo to figure out how you can incorporate some of this fabulous color into your #hairgoals routine. Below are some subtle and not-so-subtle ways you too can get a lil' chalky.
Pop n Block
If you tend to wear your hair up a lot or in braided styles, color blocking is an unexpected way to add some wow to your everyday look. The pops of color on alternating patches of hair raise the flair factor without sacrificing the health of your tresses or your low-maintenance style.
High on Highlights
Of course, highlights are a perfect way to show off your colorful side, and by varying the intensity of the chalk used in different sections, you can create some delicious depth. Even colors you might have thought you could never get away with can be truly flattering as highlights and provide a great intro to the hair chalk life. Be sure to color your face-framing pieces as those are the ones that are sure to get noticed.
All Over It
For the boldest among us who are never scared to go all in, go all out! Dive into a root-to-tip look by completely covering the hair with the NuMe chalk of your choice. For a little more funkiness, you can even ombre it by adding a second color to the mix. Either way, this style gives you all the color love minus the fear of commitment.
Tempted to try every color of the rainbow? Go for it. That's the beauty of hair chalk: it's totally temporary so why not have fun with it? Grab all the colors you're craving and pop them in wherever it tickles your fancy. A look this playful is perfect for a festival, pool party or just a regular ol' Saturday... 'cuz you feel like it.
Those who want to ease into the hair chalk idea may prefer to start by adding color to the tips of the hair. Just a little splash of color on the ends can totally turn up a look without going overboard. Those with curls will especially love the way the added color plays up their natural hair texture.
Less can certainly be more when it comes to the hair chalk. One sassy streak can let everyone know that you have an edge, and you aren't afraid to show it. Peeking out from your natural color, any shade of hair chalk is sure to be a bold statement and make you look like a rebel... with a stylish cause.
