The Hair Chalking Trend
Confession time. I can’t help it, I just love telling you guy things. When it comes to my hair, I have always wanted it to be crazy colors. Green, purple, blue, pink… I wanted to try it all. Except I never did. By the time I didn’t have to listen to my parents anymore (yup, I was that girl…no rebel here), I always felt like I couldn’t for some reason. Either because of student teaching, or the current job I had would frown upon it. Yes there was always a reason. And now that I look back I’m like why did I never just do it! Sure I dyed my hair lots of colors but we are talking mostly shades of browns, reds and black.
I can not tell you how many times I get the urge to just do something crazy with my hair. Right now, it is money that stops me. Not at all cheap to go to the salon to get several different colors put in (and then keep it up). Time consuming too! Get ready because I have a super affordable and cute alternative!
You heard me right. Chalk that goes in your hair.
I have been hearing about Hair Chalking for a few months now and I was dying to try it. Studio B in Cranston was from what I can tell the salon that brought the trend to Rhode Island where I live. Before they had it, I could not seem to find it anywhere at home locally. What blew me away is how affordable it is. $10. Just $10! At Studio B they will add it for free on top of other services, or you can make an appointment just to have your hair chalked for $10.
And it takes just minutes. The chalk is applied directly to your dry hair and in less than 10 minutes it was all done. In my hair we used the teal blue and a lighter green color since I have been dying my hair a brown/reddish color. Here is the super cute result.
Hair chalking gave me just the change that I wanted. And for $10 I can tell you I will be back more than once to have it done again. Perfect for date night too! Or you know, taking your child to an appointment which is what I did after this yesterday. It certainly got some attention, I will tell you that.
My only complaint is that it doesn’t last long at all. I was told if you don’t wash your hair you can keep it in an extra day. Woo hoo I thought, I will be beaching it with my cute streaks in the morning. I however am the girl that is constantly touching her hair. Which means that without even realizing it, each time I touched my hair the chalk was coming out little by little. By the time my husband got home from work just a few hours later there was not much chalk left. That was a little disappointing.
Next time I think I will just put my hair in a ponytail before I get it chalked. It will keep it off my face, I won’t be touching it and it should stay in longer. Seriously though, for $10? And it only takes a few minutes? You have to go get your hair chalked and let me know what you think!
Special thanks to Studio b!
