it looks awesome, i love how it looks in a braid and probably looks sick in a bun too.
do you think that when you bleached your ends that much they got really damaged? thats all im concerned about..

Whoa! Soooooo cool! I love it. I will definitely be doing this. It looks so cute braided like that too. Lauren has wicked cool hair as well :)

Is there a way to do this dip-dye effect without bleaching my hair totally blonde first? I’m just worried about the damage but I am in love with the look.

fp julia -September 22, 2010, 1:18PM

hi olivia! you definitely get the best results if you bleach it first- the color will not show up as well otherwise. i wouldn’t worry too much about the damage though as you’re only bleaching the ends of your hair, which is dead anyway :)

mockhin -October 31, 2010, 9:12AM

wonderfully-in-love with this look! does it also look good with hair that’s not too long? like,a little bit longer then shoulder-length?

ella Butler -December 11, 2010, 8:28PM

heey, sorry i know it was ages ago. but me and 2 friends reallly want to dye our tips, but wash out cause our parents wont freak! we waited all this time, till the holidays and i find out that i have to bleach my hair first! i have lightish-darkish kinda brown, so i was just wondering is bleach like permanent? so like, if i did use bleach and wash out would the bleach wash out too? and if i dont use bleach, do you know if it looks bad? please help!

this video is amazing!
i have a dirty blonde colour of hair, but i still want to bleach it to make it really bright.

i’ve heard that bleach can ruin the ends of your hair and my mum refuses to let me bleach it.did you use some spesh type of hair bleach?

Olivia Falcone -December 17, 2010, 3:27PM

I dyed my hair exactly like this this afternoon! i love it, i’ve been wanting to do it since this was first posted. It’s a little shocking pink right now, but it’ll fade soon…love the constant inspiration from this blog

I am dying to do this ! But im so scared to damage my hair. Could you possibly tell me the specific brand of dye you used ? Thank you soo much and i love itt !

sophie fielding -March 13, 2011, 12:17AM

is it semi permanent? if so, how long would it take to wash out?

lucy -May 31, 2011, 6:47PM

id have it brighter and longer so its about 5 inch from the end but its a stunning look and i think its brillian because you can have it any colour and be unique !

Lena yavrouian -June 14, 2011, 5:23AM

what brand of dye did you use?

kim -June 22, 2011, 12:01PM

if you guys think this will damage your hair, it will but it is only the ends. which are usually dead anyways. also if you don’t like it, you can always get a haircut!

Jimena -December 15, 2011, 3:29AM

I think this is sooooo cool! Im definitely doing this :)
But is there a way of doing it with non-permanant dye ?

Montana -January 16, 2012, 3:24AM

Montana -January 16, 2012, 5:51AM

diane -February 21, 2012, 3:29AM

Athirah -March 27, 2012, 5:24AM

Emma -February 18, 2013, 4:00PM

I was wondering how long it stays????

Lisa -April 2, 2013, 9:41PM

Hi! I’m a Cosmetologist and Dip Dye and ombre is still huge and I always get appointments for it.
1. It will stay depending on often you wash your hair and how healthy the ends of your hair are. always a good idea to get a trim to remove breakage and split ends after the color is applied.
2. if you already have light hair, bleach is not needed. if you have medium/light hair, a very mild bleach can be used with minimal damage. if you have dark hair, bleach will need to be applied, probably twice, then dyed to your color of choice and then toned to make it exactly what you want.
3. you’ll always use semi permanent dye unless there is gray hair, or the hair has already been dyed (aka- not virgin hair)
