I have tio think about it a little more. My mom will have a fit. lolI'm past 50 now and I want to do something a little crazy, you know? lol
well, I love to do 3 streaks on the top, short or long hair. Looking in the mirror, one to the back and right of center just a little, next further to the front on the left, about 2.5 inches from the hairline, then the 3rd on the right just about 1/4 inch closer to the hailine than the 2nd one.
They can me combed ever which way. I always recommend that people buy the clip ins first and try it.
You can also pull sections up and just use the colors that you paint on, or comb on, they dry and get stiff but if you keep combing them as they dry, its fine and will last till you shampoo.
Sallies has the clip ins, or you can make yourself.. you can just use a bobby pin too. Well if you have thicker hair, i dont but i can still hide them.
I dont know what color your hair is, but if you need to bleach it to then put the purple in, think about it, as purple fades our quickly, so does red.
I used to have clients, myself included, that did the 3 streaks, one just did one triangle at he front, left that could be swapped to either side etc.
We kept them bleached, the whenever the mood hit, put in some colors. When it fades you are ready for a new dif color =)
I love color!!!!!
