How to style my hair like this/what dye to use?
I'm getting my hair cut in a couple of weeks and I was thinking of getting it cut like this:
I was wondering how best to style it? I'm sort of going for a messy/spiky look at the moment, but I can never quite make it look that nice, also, my hair is pretty thin, so how can I make it look a bit thicker?
And I want to dye my hair this colour:
I was wondering if any of you guys had gone that colour and which dye you'd used? It's fine if it's only semi-permanent, I'd actually prefer it.
If your hair looks like your profile picture you can already style your hair like the posted image. You'll need to tease it and depending on your hair either lightly or a lot. You can help it along the way with hairspray or volumizing product (generally you want to rub product all over your hand so it really gets all over your hair not just in the bottom palm hand contact area)
Still, more cuts, tell your stylist you want something "piecey" to get get those spikes. You should also ask them what you can do to get the look at home for tips. So after teasing your now piecy hair, you can take a bit of styling product and twist the ends a bit to group them together for spikey looks.
For dye, this is a pretty standard color and any off the shelf will work, if you do it in a salon they'll be using Parvana or something else equally great. The thing is what you do to maintain the color. I highly suggest looking up Conditioner Only hairwashing. Think it's gross or too much work in your morning routine? Be sure to read the labels on shampoos and conditioners. You want sulfate free cleansers; basically if the ingredients have -ate at the end it'll make the color fade fast. Sulfate is the big ingredient in dandruff shampoos but other -ate ingredients are just as bad for hair color. It might take a while to find it but it's worth it if you love your hair color.
I really love Giovanni shampoo and conditioners right now. They look fancy, work great, and are vegan to boot. Last time I picked them up they were available at Wal-Mart for about $7 a bottle. They restore damaged hair AMAZINGLY well. On that note, if your hair is beat up from chemicals you'll want a moisturizer, they work in and out of your hair, while conditioners work the outside only. Good luck!
I'm still yet to convince my parents to let me dye my hair (and raise sufficent funds so I can get it done properly at a salon) but I'll be getting it cut in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for your help - this was great!
Get a really good conditioner for your hair if you're going to tease it a lot. It does wreck your hair but it should be fine if you remember to get a trim every couple months.
When you tease it - try to just comb it down take the comb out of the hair then comb it down again. not up & down, it should do less damage.
