Is dip dye still riding high?

2 Nov



Two-tone hair is here to stay – so says colour queen Katie Mulcahy, who works for Lisa Shepherd salons (incidentally the place where I first took the plunge with a dip dye).

However, while the standard dip dye is still very popular, hairdressers are getting more experimental with colour application from the ‘Rainbow’ hair above right (red roots, pink mid-lengths and bright orange tips) to ‘Tie dye’ hair, where the hair is plaited before application for a more sporadic dip dye effect (bottom left).

Katie was speaking at the launch of Schwarzkopf’s new Ultra Brights range of semi-permanent hair colours, featuring Pillar Box (red), Raspberry Rebel (pink) and Fiery Copper (orange), each of which lasts 6-8 washes.

As well as producing mega brights, these pure pigment colours can also be used to create pastel shades on blonde hair – simple mix a tiny blob of the colour with the conditioner provided in the box and leave on the hair for 5 minutes.

However, these colours will obviously be at their most vibrant on very light hair – for anyone with brunette or black hair expect more of a warm tint than a scorching blast of colour.
