Tie dye rainbow hair!
« on: 22 Sep 13 / 01:02 AM »
UPDATE - I've re-dyed the rainbow a few times now, changed some colours and I got a fringe cut in - here are some pics of it now :)








This is my first go at a rainbow and I'm so happy with it! I did really small sections as I wanted a mixed multicolour effect, kind of like tie-dye rather than a straightforward rainbow.
(Its still slightly wet but I'll post more pictures when I take some.)



I started with a mix of Lagoon Blue, Atlantic Blue and Bubblegum Blue:


Faded to this:


I bleach bathed and toned with Touch of Silver shampoo and sectioned my hair. I started at the bottom and used little elastic ties for each section. There are four layers of sections from the bottom to the top and I did it mostly at random, except my fringe, which I separated into 3 backwards streaks as I usually wear my hair up at the front. There are at least 30 sections, as I wanted a multicoloured effect, not just a straight rainbow.



I mixed the colours in seperate pots, with several shades of some of the colours for a multi tonal effect:


Colours used:

Rose Red diluted (Directions)
Pinkissimo (Crazy Colour)
Pinkissimo diluted (Crazy Colour)
Bubblegum blue (Crazy Colour)
Atlantic Blue diluted (Directions)
Turquoise (Directions)
Lilac (Directions)
Spring Green (Directions)
Apple Green (Directions)
Apple Green diluted (Directions)
Bright Daffodil (Directions)
Orange = Bright Daffodil and Pillarbox Red (Directions)
Pillarbox Red diluted (Directions)
Bubblegum blue and Atlantic Blue mixed (Crazy Colour and Directions)

I then applied colour to each section with a tint brush, starting at the bottom and working my way up. After I coloured each section I twisted it and clipped it up to keep it out of the way. This was pretty slow and difficult, it took me about 2 hours to do. I left it like this for about 4 hours and then rinsed out each section one by one, and clipped it back up afterwards. I didn't shampoo or condition it as the dye made it feel very soft. I gently towel dried it, blow dried it a little, and this was the final result:

Oh my! That is so pretty! You did a great job. I would love to see the process, (especially how you sectioned it off) and pics of it down.

Thank you all! I started my Masters Degree today and got so many compliments from strangers on campus and even from my professors! I'm terrified to wash it but I'll let you know how it holds up!

im curious to hear how it fades and changes as you start washing it. im secretly contemplating doing this.  i figure, since i cant get my hair all one color, i might as well just go with it.

Stunning! I could never do that (my OH helps do the back and what not and something like that might finally snap his patience!).

WOW!! I LOVE THAT! <3 I absolutely adore how multi colors look together, especially when you play with it and put it up. And I love seeing the process as well! Great job documenting! You got your hair sooo light! Just one BB!? Wow! This is one of my fave hairs I've seen on here, I love the multi cool explosion! <3

Hey Kat! :) First off, I'd just like to say, absolutely stunning hair  *loveeyes* Just beautiful. *sighs*

I was just wondering how the colours washed out and if there was any bleeding of the colours?

Also, sorry about this but, I wondering if there would be any possibility of you being able to give me a baby step by baby step instruction of how I could do this myself? I know it's a big ask but the tye-dye effect of these rainbow colours are particularly gorgeous so I'd love to be able to have this for my own hair. Problem is I'm a complete newbie at dying hair but if you were able to give me a wee bit of instruction then I could rope my older sister (on maternity leave) in on this and hopefully make my dream of rainbow hair finally come true.

Thanks for at least reading my ramblings anyway.
