How to Honey Dip, y'all
I have a secret girl crush on Jessie James Decker. After watching old episodes of Eric & Jessie on E!, I have created an obsession. She's adorable, down to Earth, has great style and is married to a smoking hot NFL player . Plus, she has her own career as a country singer, is co-host of Redneck Island and is about to launch a clothing line called "Kittenish" with Kora Rae and a swimwear line with Australian-based Amore & Sorvete. This girl has got it all! If you aren't following her on Instagram, you should be!
AND If you didn't know, she has a few tutorials on YouTube on how she does her "kittenish" make-up and hair. I got my "honey-dipped hair" color from her tutorial using Revlon's Frost & Glow - Medium to Dark box dye from Target. I know box dye is bad for you hair...but hey, we can't all afford $200 haircuts every couple months! (Hairstylists: don't hurt me.) I've done this to my hair a couple times and loved the results.
How to honey dip your hair:
Notes from Lyuda:
I've done this when my ombrè (done at a salon) was growing out. So I already had blonde in my hair at the ends like Jessie.
She's definitely right that not using the gloves is better. It burns your fingers a bit, but it's easier to feel what you are doing.
Don't throw away the color until you've dried your hair and have seen how it turned out. That way you can touch it up if needed!
Once in a while, I use purple shampoo for blondes to tone the blonde in my hair.
Comment if you have questions!
Good luck if you are brave enough to try this out. ;)
