Streak My Hair?

Post by *mel* » Tue Jun 10, 2003 10:26 am

hey all!

Um, this summer when I go to camp, I am thinking of streaking my hair a light purple. A girl there will do it for me. But, I wanted to know how hard it is to streak it. How do you do it also? I'm really worried about making it be even too, cus after camp, is vacation,,, and I don't want to look totally horrible for vacation.



So, what I'm asking is...

Is it hard?

Any tips on making it so it's even and looks good?



AND, is there any type of dye that i could buy that comes out in like 10 washes or something that way in case I don't like it, I won't be stuck with it permanently? Or is there a type of spray or soemthing? And where could I get this dye at?

thanks!! I really appreciate it!! :D

Use a toothbrush to streak it :D

Hi,



Hmmm...do you have a beauty college in your town? They'll do it there for a really good price, and it's extremely good quailty. Ask your mum or dad if there is one in the town.



I use Manic Panic to dye my hair, but I'm getting it redyed this Friday, and I'm using n"tence, n'rage. I'm curious to see how it will turn out, but if you want good quailty dye, use Manic Panic. It is semi-permanent, and it will wash out depending on how use you hair is to color. What color is your hair? If you want it to come out quickly, within a couple weeks, don't bleach your hair. The dye will come out naturally.



Keep in mind that the girl who is dying your hair might not quite know what she is doing. My suggestion is to go to a place where they DO know, because she could really fuck up your hair doing it herself.



Also keep in mind that purple fades to grey, and it's not the most attractive color on earth. I have used many different colors, but I stuck to blue. Then again, I'm not sure what color a light purple will fade to. I only know what a dark one will.



Cheers,

Lol @ Anna. I streaked her hair with a toothbrush, mwahaha, but that's what I've always used instead of a tinting brush to dye my own hair. I think purple hair is supremely sexay [totally biased opinion of course ;)], but if you're that worried about how it's going to look then I wouldn't trust someone else to do it. <3

Can't get it at wal-mart unfortunately :P....try hottopic.com if you don't have a Hot Topic near you or I'm sure you could order it cheaper off of a different website because hot topic is always overpriced. Hair/beauty supply stores have it sometimes.

Hi,



You can pick up Manic Panic at Sally's Beauty Salon. I'm not sure if that's just in Reno, or whether it's a franchize or not. I don't beleive Hot Topic carries it.
