How to color the tips of your hair

My girls recently had crazy hair day at school.  We decided we wanted to try out a temporary color on their hair.  By temporary I mean it washed out the next day in their first bath.  It came out easily with a regular shampoo.  I think it was quite cute.  You’ll never guess what we used.

My oldest daughter “Love” is NOT a girly girl.  She likes to be a tomboy.  So we did more urban colors on her hair.  This picture is the morning after.  She slept like normal and didn’t get any color on her pillow.  We used watercolor paint for the hair color.  It’s completely washable.

Want to see how we did it?

A few tips.  I would not do a whole head of hair like this.  Ever.  It would be a yucky mess.  This method works best with little pieces.  Also the paint will harden as it dries.  You can brush it out or it will soften as they sleep.  
Thanks for reading,


  1. This is a cute idea! We used to do this in high school with KoolAid. Seems like watercolor works better!

  2. So fun for a young girl to be able to do something cute with their hair. And it’s washable, so if it’s awful it doesn’t matter. I bet you guys had fun.

  3. What kind of watercolor is it?? And does it come off on clothes?

    • We used Simply watercolour {there is a pic in the post}. But you can use any kind. Make sure they are watercolors and the kind that come in tubes are easier to use. As far as washing out of clothing I am gonna say yes and no. It is water based so it will come out somewhat but if you spill a big red spot on a white shirt you are probably gonna have problems. Hope that helps.

      • Thank you :) it doesnt rub off onto clothes once its dry?? Ive tried chalking my hair and while it was great, it came off on everything..

  4. That is super funky and cool! Love the shades she picked. Could be fun for Halloween or a spirit week too!

    Would it work on DARK brown hair?

    Cool! I am going to try this. My friends recently dip dyed their hair, but I wanted to go with something more original. I mean, everyone has dip dyed hair now, right? But this is unique.

  7. How much water do we use or does it matter ( blonde hair)…

  8. Wow, awesome blog structure! How long have you been running a blog for?
