Yesterday I had a revelation backstage at Dannijo

Yesterday I had a revelation backstage at Dannijo with the geniuses at Sally Hershberger Downtown.  Temporary dip-dye hair is possible - even on dark hair.  I mean, hallelujah.  Here’s the step by step:                   The supplies: Needless to say, you need spray-on color.  The team used this.  But the essential ingredient is one of the world’s great cult products - PSSSST dry shampoo.                   The steps: The dry shampoo provides a light-colored, somewhat adhesive canvas for the spray-on color, even on darker hair.  Don some kind of a protective wrap, and apply liberally.                  Finally, layers of color create an ombre effect. You have to be pretty heavy-handed in the color application but the result seemed fairly long-lasting (like, you can work it on a Friday night and it will be still be there at 3am).                  While you’re at it, why not apply a layer of glitter?                   The result: Amazing ombre hair - no bleach necessary. If you try this, let me know how it goes!  As with any hair experiment, it pays to test it on a strand first, even though it’s just temporary color.  Also, you might not want to wear a light-colored top… You can see the Dannijo collection over on Holier than Now.
