Dip-dye is still on trend, despite the months that have passed since it arrived on the fashion scene. To make sure your dip-dye style is on top form, make sure you try out these hairstyles that will show-off your two-tone effect to its best. Let’s take a look at the 3 best hairstyles that suit dip-dyed locks this season. Long straight hair.
Make like Erin Wasson and wear your dip-dye style on long, shiny hair for maximum effect. There’s nothing like uber straight hair for making your colour stand out, especially dip-dye. The contrast between dark roots and light ends is much more noticeable on straight hair, and you’ll be the envy of every girl in the room. To create the look, wash your hair, and then create a centre parting
. Dry your hair completely with a hairdryer, but make sure to prep it with a heat-defence spray
beforehand to protect your hair from the heat. Next, straighten hair, section by section, to create the perfect straight style. Side plait.
Forget about the ponytail, this look is all about the side plait, which perfectly displays your dip-dyed ends. This plait look makes your hair into an accessory in itself! Start by creating a side parting on the side of hair you prefer. Braid your plait so that it falls down the side of the face. To create a bohemian look, tease out strands of hair to create a more dishevelled look. Finish with a layer of hairspray to hold your style in place. Short wavy hair.
The bob was last year’s standout style, and is set to stay thanks to its versatility. Wear yours wavy for an A-lister inspired look. Combining a bob with beachy waves
is bound to make your dip-dyed hair stand out from the crowd. Dip-dye effects tend to be more noticeable on shorter hair, whereas if you curl the hair, the effect is much more natural and even. The short wavy bob is the perfect combination for showing off your dip-dyed ends. To get the look, head down to your salon or try it out at home using a curling iron. Take large sections, wrapping them around the barrel of the iron, to end up with wavy tresses. Spray with hairspray to make your curls last longer. © Abaca © Jean Louis David
