Well it’s about time but I’ve finally got around to writing a bit about dip-dye. As it is a trend that hasn’t gone away and in fact increased in popularity. We have had more of you asking for dip-dye colour or ombre. In case you’re not sure what this is, typically it’s when you have brunette hair and it gradually fades lighter towards the ends which will be light or even blonde, giving the hair a look of dark hair that got lightened by the sun and then has grown out a bit. This is the most subtle incarnation. However if you search the internet for images of dip-dye or pop onto pinterest and do the same, you will be inundated with different variations.
Due to the varied nature of dip-dye we’ve had many of you asking whether you can have it?! Some people asking for the typical colour I described above and some of you asking for slightly more daring versions. Dark with blue ends to the hair or blond hair with pink! ( see here) It isn’t the same dying process for each style of dip-dye. It depends what your base colour is and what we’ll need to do to achieve the result you desire.
However the main question we get asked is simply do you do dip-dye and the answer is YES! So here is one we did earlier with a delighted customer. We’ll call her Lucy…errr because that is her name!
Lucy had already bleached blonde hair. She wanted to go darker blonde or light brown with caramel ends. We used two colours to tint Lucy’s hair to give a subtle two tone effect.
