Tips for Bleaching
One thing before we start - for most of these styles, you'll have to bleach your hair. If you're new to bleaching and dying and need some help, check out my article on how to bleach dark hair! Now, let's get on with the styles
1. Teal Blue Ombre
Dye(s): Manic Panic Enchanted Forest
Manic Panic Raven Black
Process: If you're looking to replicate this gorgeous ombre, you'll have to have very light ends. There's this thing with blue/green dye where if your hair isn't PERFECTLY platinum, it'll turn baby poop brown. If you have dark hair, you will definitely have to use some sort of bleach to lift the color from your ends.
As you can see from the photo, this lady's roots are quite dark. You could achieve this by using a dye brush to apply Manic Panic's Raven Black to your roots - or skip it, if your hair is already fairly dark.
If you are opting to dye your roots black, you can totally do it at the same time that you put in Manic Panic Enchanted Forest. The Enchanted Forest dye is closest to what
you see in the photo. If you'd like the same effect but more of a blue tone, try out Manic Panic's Atomic Turquoise!
To achieve an ombre, you have to mix a few varying concentrations of dye - so that it'll have that nice fading effect. If your hair is boobs-length, you'll probably be good with one mixture. Using a bowl, mix equal amounts dye and conditioner. Set it aside for later!
After using your dye brush to apply black (or not) at your roots, ***wash it*** to get all of the black out. Then, use the brush to apply Enchanted Forest for the next several inches down your strands. Be sure to overlap it with the black to blend.
Using a clean dye brush, do the same with the dye/conditioner blend. Paint it down to about two inches away from the tips of your hair. Leave the tips dye-free - so they stay as light as possible! After about an hour, wash it all out. If the dye has bled too much into your white ends, use hot water and baking soda to lighten them back up!
