Ok this week…due to real life experience, it is how to fix your streaks if you mess them up.
I have streaked my own hair forever, well for thirty years anyways, you think I would be good at it right?
The first time it turned out great, but then I decided to do it one more time as I am trying to get back to being more blonde again.
The one thing about streaking with a cap, is you have total control, the other thing about streaking with a cap, is that you can’t see if your streaks are too close together.
On my bangs…
So…now I have to fix it.
Because I am OCD.
And it looks like hell.
All I am going to do, is go and buy a dark blonde semi permanent colour and streak over the streak. That should cover it enough that it isn’t so noticeable.
Easy fix that will only cost me about $7.
It sucks that I have to fix it at all, but that is the price you pay when you do your own renovations :) I still probably saved about $50.
The one thing that people don’t do when they do their own hair is the strand test. If you have never streaked or coloured your own hair before, you HAVE to do the test. It is really important to leave the colour in long enough. Especially if you are bleaching. If you don’t leave the colour in for long enough, you will have orange.
My hair takes a long time to strip, so I have to leave the colour in for usually at least an hour.
The big chunk I have in my bangs is a lovely blonde :)
The other thing people do wrong, it taking too much hair out. You want it to be subtle and layered looking, not chunky…
Not a good look if you are over about 25…just saying.
The other thing is to use a good quality streak kit. I always use the one from Revlon. It has one for brown hair and one for blondes. Use the one suitable to your shade…Blonder is not always better.
And if you have black hair and want to lighten it…I highly recommend you go see a stylist.
So here is a picture of my hair before the fix up…a little too blonde and porn star for me in the front…and after, which I definitely am happier with.
The color is way different in both pictures as one was taken in the daytime and one was at night, the only part I changed was the bangs on the right side that were blonde :) Amazing what light can do isn’t it? Anyways…I feel far sexier now that I fixed that!! Lesson to self…pay attention to the pieces as you pull them through the damn cap…
Happy Sunday my friends…
Peace ♥ Out…
