Watercolor Hair Dye Technique


Earlier this week my sister and I made a YouTube video  https://youtu.be/vDQ3g3VM2xI chronicling our experimentation with the
watercolor hair dye method. Our video was inspired by influencers on
Instagram rocking their amazing watercolor styles. Even though we lack the skill
and talent when it came to the installation of the wig (we tried our best), we
found this technique easily achievable with the right products, instruction, and
some trial and error. What we liked most about the watercolor method is that its
inexpensive and easier than previous hair dye methods of the past!

 

 We hope that you love pink like we love pink, so for our video on
YouTube https://youtu.be/vDQ3g3VM2xI we chose a rose gold to color for our
#613 Russian Blonde wig. This technique is definitely made for us DIYladies
that want those whimsical warm hues of strawberry blond with extra peach to
rose gold with ginger undertones, the watercolor hair dye method can bring a
kaleidoscope of possibilities from bright vivids to light calming pastels and
every color in between. Here’s the scoop on how we got the perfect water color
tresses of our favorite celebrities and fellow Youtubers.
