If you do not want to change the colour of the curls cardinally, but you want to change it very much, you can try to paint only their tips. Moreover, this transformation opens up endless possibilities for experiments with colour combinations.
Types and techniques of hair tip dyeing
Classic or a game of flowers
With all the colourful variety, there are only two types of dyeing: classical and coloured.
In the first case, only one colour is used, usually darker shades on lighter curls and lighter shades on darker ones.
But if the hair is of medium shades (for example, dark-coloured or light-brown), the tips can be coloured in both lighter and darker shades.
Colour staining is much more diverse, as it involves the use of several shades of colour. In this variant, it is possible to create and surprising flares, and effect of the faded strands in different colouring, and avant-guard models with multi-coloured strands – a choice practically is not limited.
In contrast to the types of tip staining, the techniques of this procedure are much greater. The most popular today are “omber”, “balayage” and “dip dye”, which allow you to create incredibly beautiful transitions and combinations of tones.
How to prepare your hair for dyeing
Professionals recommend a minimum of two weeks’ advance training. Remember that any paint does not have the best effect on the condition of the strands.
And you’ll probably have to do some lightening, which dries the already dry ends. Any mask that provides extra power will help you avoid future curl problems.
You can do a beautiful haircut with filiration, but do not abuse the long filiration, otherwise the staining procedure will be quite complicated.
What you need:
- Paint (one, two or more shades);
- soup and oxide (if you want to lighten the tips);
- Paint container (non-metallic);
- A comb (with rare teeth is better – it is easier to achieve a smooth transition);
- flat brush to separate the strands;
- Hair gum;
- peignoir and gloves.
Hair tip dyeing at home
The clarification of the curls can be done with special paint:
If the hair has been dyed before or is too dark, you should use soup.
If the lightning is supposed to be minimal (no more than 2-3 tones), then use 3-6% oxide.
If more intensive clarification is required, then 9% oxide should be used.
Bleaching is only a preliminary stage, after which the ends of the hair must either be dyed or tinted. If you don’t want to dye the hair, you can remove the yellowness and copper shades that appear after clarification with a shampoo.
1. dyeing according to the “ombre” technique.
Ombre implies a smooth transition of one shade to another. The finished result creates the effect of burned hair. When you decide to dye your hair in this technique, you need to combine at least two colours.
Lovers of bright tones are ideal for shades such as pink, purple, fuchsia or raspberry. However, you can always choose other options, depending on your imagination and taste preferences.
In order to make the shades as bright as possible, it is desirable to lighten the tips before applying the main paint. Ombre is a win-win option for long hair.
First of all, apply a darker colour to all the roots.
Wait about 10 minutes and apply the same colour to the middle of the curls without touching the ends.
Now apply a lighter tone to the rest of the hair and wrap it in foil.
Wait for the time specified by the dye manufacturer for complete dyeing and wash it off using shampoo and dyed hair balm. You can enjoy the result:)
2. dyeing with the balajazh technique.
This technique will allow you to shine with hair, the color of the tips will be significantly different from the main color of the hair. This method allows you to create a unique style and emphasize your individuality.
In order for the finished result to impress with its splendor, the cut tips must be trimmed a little beforehand, otherwise after dyeing they will stand out too much.
An option for those who have one or almost one hair length
- Pull your hair out from behind and move it both ways forward.
- Apply light paint to all ends. The more white you want, the more you apply the dye from the ends to the roots (just don’t overdo it, “better less than more”).
- Cover the painted ends with foil.
- When the tips begin to lighten, brush your hair, thus removing the sharp edges.
- Cover the curls with foil again and hold the rest of the time.
- When time passes, remove the foil and wash off the paint.
- Cascade or graduation option
- Get your tail hair on the top of your head. If their ends are about the same length (in the tail), it’s your dyeing option.
- Pick up the curls in the high tail (approximately on the top or where you have more or less the same length of ends).
- If you have a medium length of hair, cover your head with foil or a bag, only the tail should stick out. If it is long, do nothing.
- Apply light paint to all the ends protruding from the tail.
- When time passes, remove the foil and rubber band and wash off the paint.
For short hair
Carefully comb the curls and scratch them up (professionals call this procedure a dead end). The lacquer can be used for fixation.
Gently apply the paint with a brush on the foil and slide the coloured side over the edge of the hair.
If you find this procedure too complicated, you can apply the paint on the hairline directly with your fingers, without forgetting to use rubber gloves. Dip your hands in a bowl of paint and spread the dye over the strands in a tingling motion. Make sure that all strands are well stained.
For medium to maximum hair length
Let’s say you have a haircut with clear enough contours and want to emphasize only the lower part of it. Then, first of all, separate the upper part of the hairline, which will not participate in the dyeing, and fix them well.
Then use a brush to apply the paint on the “edging”. Next, the scheme is standard: wait for the right time and wash the paint.
Preparing for coloring is to divide the entire hair area into small squares. It is important to observe the following condition: the first parting must necessarily go from ear to ear.
Once the separation is complete, assemble the curls into small tails and apply dye to the tips.
Each time the paint is applied, wrap the finished curl in foil.
For a more uniform result, it is recommended that the tails are also wrapped in foil.
Successful combinations of colours on the roots of hair and tips in the technique of “balayage”:
- bronze at the base and amber at the tips;
- Eggplant in combination with Burgundian shades;
- The main colour is dark chestnut, the tips are in tones with bronze shades;
- Sandra looks perfect with pearl shades.
For brunettes to achieve the desired result it is desirable to lighten the hair tips beforehand.
