Ready to try butterbeer hair? Here’s how…
The butterbeer trend can be interpreted in so many wand-erful ways, but the simplest is to opt for the two-tone yellow/orange look. You’ll need Bleach London Super Cool Colour in Bold As Brass and Bleach London Super Cool Colour in Blorange. You’ll also need two mixing bowls and a tint brush.
- Start by washing your hair with a colour-friendly shampoo – don’t use conditioner, which will prevent colour absorption – then towel-dry it.
- Squeeze a dollop of the brass colour into one bowl and the orange into the other.
- Tie half of your hair up into a bun and let the other half hang loosely.
- Beginning at the roots, use your tint brush to coat the loose section of your hair with orange.
- Now for the next shade. Let the other section of your hair down and apply the brass colour to it, again starting at the roots.
- Leave for 30 mins, then rinse all the dye out of your hair with warm water.
