WHAT WE WORE:: NEON LOOK 1

Nancy and I are both feeling excited about our new neon pieces – mine is a sweater from J.Crew (cashmere! majorly discounted!) and Nancy’s is a crop top turtleneck from Tobi. We’re going to be showing you a few different ways that we wear neon over the next couple of weeks, and this is Look 1. I’ll be totally up front with you, this first look was 100% inspired by this outfit. It may or may not be the whole reason I bought the sweater.

  1. Cristina!

    Your hair is fabulous! I want it!! Please tell me what to tell the stylist! specifically with color… it seems you have a subtle, natural looking ombre and long layers maybe? It’s gorgeous I’m so jealoussssss.

    1. Wow thank you Candace! I asked for an ombre and they didn’t use any color just bleach on the ends and then he used conditioner mixed with bleach to bring the color up gradually. I brought a picture of Lily Aldridge in and asked for her hair 😉 Good luck and let me know how it turns out!!

  2. Wanting to get an ombre like Nancy’s after I saw your guys’ DIY dip dye (you have gorgeous hair!), but I was wondering how she did it?

    1. Hello Naomi!

      I had never bleached my hair before this, but it was really easy to do!

      You can find all of your tools at a local beauty/drug store. I went to Sally’s Beauty Supply to grab the essentials.

      What you need: Foil (buy enough for your hair), a dye brush, hair bleach, developer (I used 30), a mixing bowl, an old shirt/towel, gloves, and an awesome conditioner

      1. Put on your old shirt or cover yourself with a towel that you can toss. Remember, this is bleach so it can ruin cloth easily! I did this in my bathroom for counter space and I needed a big mirror.
      2. Put on your gloves and start mixing your hair bleach and developer. Read the instructions carefully and get the portions right. If you have dark hair, go with a 30 or 40 volume developer. I have black hair and used a 30.
      3. Separate your hair down the middle and place it in front where you can see all of your hair.
      Take a chunk of your hair (I believe I separated my hair in 6 sections) and place a piece of foil underneath it. Take your dye brush, scoop a generous amount of bleach and start applying it to your tips. I went up about 6 inches, since I have very long hair. Fold the foil neatly when you are done applying the bleach. Do this for all of your sections.
      4. Reach the instructions on the developer bottle to figure out how long you should keep the foil on your hair. I kept mine in for about half an hour.
      5. Unravel your foil and wash your hair. Shampoo and apply a heavy amount of conditioner on your tips. I would leave the conditioner in your hair for a few minutes to soak the moisture in.
      6. Blow dry you hair!
