Summer has come and it’s time to go have fun. And why not with your hair too?

If you’ve seen Ellie Goulding lately, she has just recently changed hair color from honey blonde to platinum to pink in three days! If you love coloring your hair too but only want the change for a short time or if you have yet to find out just how liberating changing your hair color can be, then go ahead and try hair chalking.

What is Hair Chalking?

Hair chalking is the talk of the town recently. From hipsters to beauty experts, everyone seems to be enamored with this latest beauty trend. It’s an easy, non-committal way to get fun, bright colors on your hair.

Have fun with you hair over the weekend and come back in the office looking prim and proper again. That is if they don’t allow rainbow colored hair in your work place. But if yes, then who’s stopping you from going to work with your creative self expressed on your hair?

Here are the different shades of pink hair chalks you can choose from!

So, ready to try hair chalking and snag Ellie Goulding’s latest do? Let’s get started.

What you’ll need:

  • Pink hair chalk
  • Water in a spray bottle
  • Rubber gloves
  • Old towel, t-shirt or any piece of cloth
  • Flat or curling iron

Ready, set, go!

  1. Place the towel, shirt or cloth around your shoulders to cover them up to the neck.
  1. Rubber gloves in place, get a small section of your hair and lightly moisten from the tip up to where you want to apply the color. If you have blonde or light hair color, you can skip this step.
  1. Twist your hair and rub the pink hair chalk in and around it. Do this one small section at a time.
  1. Wait for your hair to air dry.
  1. Using the flat or curling iron, go over each colored section to set the color in place.
  1. Try styling your hair in braids or hold it up in a fun bun. Or just keep loose and free like Ellie!

It’s super and easy, right? How about if you want to get the color off already? That’s easy too.

If you didn’t wet your hair and didn’t go over it with an iron, just brush your hair several times and get as much color off as possible. Then shampoo your hair and wash off the rest. If you wet your hair before chalking and ironed it after air drying the color will stay for a few days up to a week.
