Dip dye? - July 4th 2012, 09:05 PM

I really want to dip dye the ends of my hair in summer. I was wondering if anyone ha any ideas of colours I could try as my hair is quite dark. My hair is like a medium shade of brown with natural highlights of blonde and darker browns. Any ideas for suiting colours?:3 <3

If your hair is dark then you're going to have to bleach the tips before you dye them, so just keep that in mind.
With dark hair pretty much any color would look nice. For summer I think a pink or a teal color would look really pretty.

Your hair is dark, so I don't think it's easy to make your dye color abovious. Then bleach your hair, and then choose the color you love. Maybe you can try to make your hair gradient.

That would be an ombre look and I agree it would look really pretty.

Well, if you let the dye sit in long enough it should come out fairly bright without bleaching right? Just, of course you'd have to let it sit a real long time :P
I've got medium brown hair too and have purple hair dye to put in streaks in my hair, thatll probably look good on tips too. Maybe just a black as well?

No, not exactly. Letting it sit longer will just damage hair even more, and once the dye dries it doesn't really do much more anyway. You absolutely have to bleach hair before dying it if you want it to come out.
Think of it like painting. If you paint red onto a white canvas it will turn out much more vibrant and noticeable than if you painted red onto a black canvas.

This is late but anyways, I have dark brown hair and I dip dyed three inches of mine I faded the colors from blue to purple to pink, it looked really cool. I have done it bleaching first and without, both turned out great! I used the brand splat hair dye. Good luck!
