What to keep in mind…

Even though this colour is temporary, we want you to be happy with the results. Here are a few tips to keep in mind, that’ll help you nail this technique…
If you have dark hair, make sure you try this on wet hair first for best results and be choosy about the kind of waxy chalk you use.

As a rule, the darker your hair, the brighter the colour of the chalk should be.
Make sure to use a darker shade higher up the hair strand and brighter shade closer to the tip. This will create an ombre effect.
