Who wants one color when you can have two? The days of flat, one-note hair color are over, so use this simple step-by-step to combine two colors you’re loving for a look filled with natural texture and dimension. Plus, you can do it all from the comfort of your own bathroom. Hello, happiness!
- 2 boxes of Natural Instincts hair color. Your first color should be up to three shades lighter than your natural color. The second box can be either your current shade or one shade darker than your current shade.
- A makeup sponge (trust us on this one)
Step 1: Wash and dry hair.
Step 2: Separate your dry hair into four equal sections.
- Curly haired ladies, start with a center part.
- Straight haired gals, create a deep side part before separating into sections.
Step 3: Mix each color according to package directions. Don’t forget those gloves! No one wants hair color hands.
Step 4: Apply the lighter shade from roots to tips in all four sections.
Step 5: Now for the fun part! Braid each section.
Step 6: Using the makeup sponge, apply the darker color on the hair surface that’s showing from the braid, avoiding the ends. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Step 7: Rinse, use the Natural Instincts conditioner for softness and shine, style, and voila! Who needs a colorist when you have a bathroom, hair dye, and your stylish self?
