Dip Dying Galore



If I would have been a brunette, I would have dyed my hair to ombre hair a long time ago. I am however a very happy blonde (putting all my past and present hair-dying excursions aside). When one of my friends told me the other day that I should definitely dip dye my hair blue, I had to admit that I have been seriously thinking about it. Personally the pink dip dye seems like the better option but I can only commend women who sport the blue or green dip dye.


It started for me with the subtle dip dye of Kate Foley, a buyer for Opening Ceremony (see the picture above). This is a very realistic way of implementing the trend in my daily life and therefore an amazing dip dye inspiration. Patricia and I had fun some time ago with hairspray and blush, a temporary way to dip dye your hair (details here and here) and I was amazed with how well it works. I will definitely be applying this technique more and more. I have a wedding coming up, new years and several fashion parties, so no excuses for not going crazy with blush and pigments. But I figured it was time for the more serious work and decided to set up a inspiration folder of the best dip dyes. Partly to share my newest obsession with you but mostly to enjoy myself with this fun trend.

    Ik zal de dip & dye nooit beu geraken!

  7. I wouldn’t dare trying this myself, but on these girls it does look good.
    Maybe you can try a non-permanant dip dye first ?

  8. @B: The lovely Hiske at Snip Snip in Antwerp gave me one of those spray paints that you can color your hair with. Lots of fun! However it’s a fine line between dip dye and carnaval hair :)
