There are tons of tutorials on how to hair chalk... but what make this one special is that I learned a lot of tips from trying this to make it easier for you. Things that other tutorials didn't specify.
Supplies: A spray bottle full of water, straightening iron or curling iron or blow dryer or all three, soft chalk pastels (art store)
STEP ONE: Pick out sections of your hair you want colored.
TIP: TAKE THIS PROJECT OUTSIDE IT CAN GET MESSY!
STEP TWO: Soak the strand of hair with spray bottle.
STEP THREE: Rub pastel on the wet strand in a downward stroke.
TIP: CHEAP PASTEL CHALK DOES NOT WORK, I had 3 different sets of chalk that I use for pastel chalk drawing and the slightly more expensive set was wonderful. The cheap set from Walmart did not work.
TIP: Don't pull strand through hair it removes some of the color instead close and reopen the flat iron in sections of strand. I also found that it was better to go ahead and use a curling iron instead of a flat iron if I was wanting curls.
TIP: The chalk left me wanting to brush my hair but believe me... DON'T BRUSH IT! The chalk will just lighten and disappear!
It also made my hair feel really thick however I really enjoyed it. I think hair chalking works great for when you just want something different for a day or two. Like a game night or party or festival or a fun photo shoot!
Have a wonderful Friday! Check back Monday for a week full of fantastic posts I have planed!!
