I love a good animal print, be it on a pair of shoes, jacket or dress because the pattern is an obvious eye catcher and makes a bold statement. While Snooki from The Jersey Shore may have ruined animal print for a few, I have kept the faith and so have many designers and other Fashionistas including the one spotlighted today. I absolutely love how this Fashionista is wearing so many trends at once but still has an air of cool city-chic sophistication. Who could have guessed that high-waist aqua colored denim pairs so well with a sheer leopard blouse? Well this Fashionista knew what she was doing, and is doing it well. While her outfit is spot on I think her hair is the best part of her outfit. Curly hair in general is awesome and full of personality but when it’s dyed a crazy fun color it’s a whole new ballgame. Dyeing one’s hair a colorful color be it dip-dye or all-over, has become a major trend on college campuses and the runways alike.
To get colorful hair you will have to use bleach in order for your natural hair to take to the new color. Bleach can make any girl cringe, because it is pretty easy to ruin or fry your naturally gorgeous locks. However if you really want to try this hair trend but are afraid of bleaching on your own be sure to make an appointment with a trusted hair stylist. She or he will take good care of your precious locks. But if you’re daring there are many online tutorials that will help with the process from start to finish. I really like Pine needle’s tutorial because she goes from a yellow blonde to a pastel green and gives pointers and tips for every step along the way. Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde Ultimate Lightener L1++ is a great bleach to use when dyeing by yourself. This product is made with a lightening formula that can work to make dark hair blonde. The lightener can bleach the hair by up to 8 shades and doesn’t seriously damage your hair. After bleaching comes the fun part, putting in the color! Manic Panic offers a wide variety of colors including purple, teal, pink, blue, red etc. Be sure to invest in a good deep conditioner so as to keep your locks healthy and sleek. If you’re willing to spend a bit of cash try Ojon intensive hydrating two-minute hair mask. For the Fashionista on a budget try Pantene replenishing mask.
