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 .

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…
