I discovered hair chalking from a work friend of mine a few months back who put me on to a product called 'Kevin Murphy: Color Bug". I did some research and watched some youtube videos and it seemed too good to be true, but when I tried it out it really was as easy as it said.

Kevin Murphy Color Bug in pink & purple

For my first go, I decided to do my tips - pink fading into purple.

Pretty much you just put special product in your hair (I just used hairspray) so the chalk sticks, then rub the bugs down your hair and it colours. I started on the ends with purple and did pink above it next.

Note: put a towel over your shoulders while doing this as the chalk does spill slightly. 

As you can see it does stain your hand but is water soluble so comes off very easily.

Didn't get the best after shot of the hair but it was quite bright. It was hard to get the back even because I couldn't see and did it all by feel but I was happy with the end result.

For darker hair there is special products you can buy so that the colour stands out but I recommend to anyone planning on chalking their hair to watch the youtube videos first for tips and proper instruction!

Next chalking experience I'll be trying something like this with a friends help:

Until then :) xx
