I have always wanted to do different things with my hair although I NEVER have!! I have Very Blonde hair and the thought of putting any color in it scares me because my hair is very porous and will literally suck in the color…my fear is not getting my Blonde back! I’ve wanted to do funky things with my hair more than ever but now I’m not so much in the beauty industry where I had the ability at the time to do it and get away with it. I’m back in school and will be entering the professional world as a Teacher. I want to be taken seriously as a professional but know that walking in with pinks, blues and purples in my hair is not going to land me the job or the pay I want.
My solution…. HAIR CHALKING!!!!!! 
Pinning Welcomed!!! :o)

You may or may not have heard of it…It’s typically seen out on the West Coast so I’m sure it will be making its way East soon! Trends seem to wave up, so here you have it! Hair Chalking 101!! It’s Temporary and last a day or two….Perfect for someone whom needs to maintain a professional appearance Monday morning or if you change your style often. Hair Chalking is CHEAP!! You can buy a whole set of “soft Pastels” for 11 dollars at ACMoore or Michaels and if you wait till Sunday you can use a 50% off coupon and get it for like $5 dollars like I did!! It gives you the ability to try new colors and if you don’t like it you can just hop in the shower and try again!! 

DON’T wet your hair if you have light colored hair (unless you want it to last longer than 1 or 2 days) Once it gets wet it turns it into more of a dye. 

For those of you with dark hair you need to wet the hair first, then chalk. For a more vibrant color…wet your hair. Chalk with WHITE, let dry a little maybe a minute then apply the color chalk you want. You don’t need to do white, but the white does act like a primer. If you don't use white first know that your second color won’t be as Vibrant. 

The key to locking in the color is Heat, so turn on those flat irons and curlers and get started.
Wear gloves as it will get messy…I had my mom do it but you can do it on your own.
