Tresses Thursday #5 - Hair Chalk ♥

I had bought these hair chalks as part of my home and beauty haul a few weeks back and was excited to try them out. I didn't get the chance until yesterday as it was a bit quieter in my house with Tyler sleeping a lot, must have been the good weather making him lazy! These hair chalks were bought from Claire's Accessories and were only €1 each! I couldn't leave them behind for that price. They had four colours on offer yellow, orange, pink and mint green, I chose the latter two as they reminded me of a hair inspiration picture on Pinterest I loved of pink and mint green dip dyed ends on blonde hair - this was the look I tried to recreate. The hair chalks themselves were very simple to use, I just held the ends of the container and rubbed them on the hair. This process was quite messy though and required using a towel to collect the chalk particiles that went everywhere around my bedroom! I was hoping for a more vibrant colour but the chalk absorbs into the hair giving a more toned down look. I do love the effect it gave to the ends of my hair though, a perfect look for summer and a great one for festivals. This look reminds me somewhat of 1960's hippy style hair so I teamed it with a slight curl and plaits on the sides of my head to give a laid back, peace out look. I love it!
