ROSE HAIR TUTORIAL
So you know when you’re on snapchat and you use that dreamy rose filter and your hair color looks like it has the teeniest bit of rose in it? Ashley and I decided we wanted that to be on her head… all day, every day, IRL. We wanted something new and fun for her character in her upcoming spin off of Young & Hungry. (Not to mention it will match perfectly with every palette and lip in her widely anticipated makeup line!) Once we posted these photos, we got a ton of people wanting to know how to get it so we wanted to share!
Rose Filter IRL is the prettiest and so easy to achieve and I’m going to show you how you can do it at home. It’s safe and as temporary as you want it to be. You can keep it up or it can fade away in 2-3 washes. Whatever you decide, here’s how it’s done!
You have to start with naturally blonde, pre-lightened (bleached) or highlighted hair. This won’t really show up on dark hair because it’s so pastel but if you have blonde highlights throughout your dark hair it will be great! If you need help on doing that yourself– go HERE!
Jess has a couple of clip-in extensions and we’re going to color those seperately, using the same color.
This is an extremely simple process. You will need 3 (maybe 4) things…
- A color bottle
- ( once you click here, use the drop-down menu to select “rose quartz”)
- 2 oz warm water
- gloves (optional)
- mix your color and water in a applicator bottle and take it into the shower.
- shampoo hair in the shower.
- apply your color all over in the shower and wait 5 minutes.
- rinse hair thoroughly.
- condition with your normal conditioner.
- air dry or blow-dry
- do the same thing, just in the sink.
- never color them while clipped into your hair. it will definitely complicate things.
This is the final look on blonde hair. Results may vary based on tone of your blonde hair. The thing I love most about this is it’s just a little hint of rose– not full blown pink. In the sunlight it’s neither here nor there, a little blonde and a little pink! It washes out quickly so the commitment is minimal and it’s easy to do on yourself (PERFECT for this long, sunny, upcoming MD weekend!)
Would love to see photos if you end up getting this and trying it! If you use it, tag us on insta @thebeautydept and we’ll repost!
