Chalk it Up | Dolled Up Daily Blog

Dip dying has been around for awhile, and is a popular and chic quirky way of adding some spunk to any hair style. But what a lot of people haven't found yet is something similar, but even better, it's not permanent! Not to mention it's SUPER cheap, and all the results of dip dying can be achieved way easier and cheaper. It's a perfect thing to try while the weather is warming up this spring! If you don't like it, it washes out in just one shampoo wash!

To do this you use soft wax chalk, also called soft pastels.



You can pick up a box of 36 of these chalks from Michaels for $4.99, see them online here.



All you need to do is put a towel around your neck and shoulders(you don't want the color to get on your clothes or skin)

Take a spray bottle and mist the spots you wish to temporarily color with water.

Rub the chalk on the damp pieces of hair. Any color combination or style you want.





Yep. It's that easy!
Hopefully some of you guys like this and try it out. I have naturally blonde hair so it showed up good on me, I heard it works on darker hair colors as well though.

Show me pictures if any of you try it!

  3. Fantastic idea! I've never heard of doing this before. I wonder if it will work with dark hair? One way to find out, I guess.

  18. What a great idea and it looks gorgeous on your hair! My only question is - does it get on your clothing after it is applied?

    Have a great weekend love!

    1. I've never had any rub off, but i wouldn't wear something white when I did this! Also I wouldn't do it if it were a rainy day :)

  50. This is beautiful.
    And while I know you've said it works on dark colored hair too. But I'm thinking and I'm sort of doubting it...
    I have dark brown hair ; brown enough to pass off as black. Would it work? Not just the bright colors, but the normal ones too?
    Lovely blog, BTW :)
