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.

  1. Was ik nog maar jong en onbezonnen! Ben ooit bedankt voor bewezen diensten in een school omdat ik (ca. 10 jaar terug) deze haartrend had toegepast!

    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 :)
