I’ve gotten pretty tired of my hair lately.

The only exciting moment is when I’ve noticed my hair getting a little bit longer. So, it was like my prayers (or pleas) for cooler hair were answered when I was given the opportunity to work with Schwarzkopf and show you guys how to style coloured balayage hair!

So, I did it – I coloured my hair pink, or what the packet calls Raspberry Rebel. When I ripped open the hair dye I nearly had a heart attack, the colour was super bright and I got a bit worried, but I watched a couple of DIY videos to help me get into the groove. I snapped on the gloves and away I went. With a deep breath and a ‘what have I got to lose?’ attitude, I started covering the ends of my hair in this bright pink colour. I can kind of relate colouring my hair to the moment when you’re about to paint on a blank canvas and you hover the brush above the canvas just hoping you get it right, that moment you just hope it doesn’t stuff up.  This is what colouring my ends pink was like. The moment I put the colour on my hair was a huge relief and away I went, painting my ends and then leaving it on for about 20 minutes. Washing out the dye just as fun, the water ran bright pink for a while and just looked so cool!

I dried my hair and loved the finished result; I thought the pink would be darker on my hair, but it turned a great shade of pink. I felt that I blended the colour into my hair pretty well, I made sure I had a nice gradient between my natural colour and the pink and not a harsh line. I’m so pleased with the result – Now, I’m just waiting to see if a turquoise semi-permanent colour comes out one day! 

Fun and bright colour, without the commitment! What’s not to love?!

  1. I love it! I wish my hair was a lighter colour so I could do something like this.

    1. You could try a darker colour! Or just go for blonde ombre and then colour it later on for a change! It's honestly so fun!! :) x
