Hair Chalking 101

Step 1: Prepare the Hair
Wet the hair so that the colour of the chalk will stick. However, do not wet if you have very fair hair, unless you want the colour to stick longer.

Step 2: Apply the Chalk
Apply the chalk to the strand of hair in a downward motion, twisting the hair as you chalk. You can try for a fun ombre look, or just do a couple of strands.

Step 3: Set the Colour
While you can blowdry your hair, others recommend air drying so that you don’t blow off the chalk. Once dry, seal the colour in with a flat iron or a curling iron to add waves.
Apply hair spray as a final step.

Step 4: Wash Out the Chalk
The colour generally will only last one
shampoo; however, if the hair is more porous, such as color-treated blonde hair, it can last a couple of shampoos.
