How To Get Tie Dye Hair

One of the latest trends emerging for summer is the tie dye hair look. This is the ultimate boho style for festivals and can be the perfect way to spice up your look for the summer. We have tried the hair ombre, festival glitter, and unicorn hair so it is time to make way for a new style to get excited about. This style will require several different colors so it is either time to start shopping or go looking for those leftover pots of dye you had from your rainbow style.

The great thing about this style is you can have complete freedom when it comes to selecting the colors, tone, and brightness of your dye. The point of tie dye is that it is supposed to turn out differently every time. Just look at tie dye hoodies. They are all different, right? So your hairstyles will be too.

How To Do Tie Dye Hair Color Technique

This style can be easily achieved at home so take these simple steps on your way to getting tie dye hair. The first step is to make sure your hair is properly prepared. If you want your color to be bright then you are going to need to bleach your hair first. Allow a couple of days before dyeing your hair for it to recover from the bleach.

When you are ready to dye your hair make sure you have all your equipment close by so you don’t need to go searching for something part way through dyeing your hair. Section off your hair and separate the sections you want to dye. With tie dye styles you can opt for a pattern or some simple color streaks. Creating a variation in tone can look awesome so bear this in mind when you are applying your hair dye.

Next, all you need to do is follow the instructions on your packet of hair dye. Remember even if you have dyed your hair before it is important to read the instructions and perform a patch test. Every dye is different so this is one of the most essential tie dye hair tips.

Once you have washed out the dye you can enjoy a brand new color and the great thing about this style is it also looks cool once it has faded.

The first two styles have been for long hair but the tie dye effect can look equally as awesome on short hair. Check out this tie dye short hair. The difference between a short and long style is that it is best to start adding color nearer to the roots in short styles.
