Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing this Night Out Hairstyle Tutorial. Since I recently colored my hair a lighter copper red, I thought I’d style it up and share with you the steps. With Spring just around the corner, I thought a lighter hair color was in order.
New Hair Color
New season, new sandals, new hair color! My hair is naturally dark – almost black. But late last year, I colored my hair a burgundy red. Now, for the warmer season, I thought I’d go lighter. I picked up this Schwarzkopf Color Ultime Flaming Reds at Walmart. Schwarzkopf is known for their easy to use professional quality hair color that you can use at home. The color ULTÎME line features vibrant, fashion shades, while their Keratin Color line is great for 100% gray coverage.
I got the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime Flaming Reds 8.4 Light Copper Red shade. Since my hair color was dark, I knew that the result of the color process will be darker than what’s pictured in the box. But you know what? I’m actually impressed with the result, not to mention how shiny my hair was after!
For reference, this was my hair color before the change.
After coloring my hair with the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime hair color…
This is how it looks like now…
It actually looks lighter with natural light. See below.
Isn’t it nice? The color is very pretty. And if I were a light blonde or medium blonde, which this shade is suitable for according to the box directions, I’m pretty sure I’d get the exact color in the box. My previous darker red color also looked lighter outdoors. But this one has more light coppery tones to it. Love it! I’m pretty sure I’ll go even lighter come summer. So stay tuned for that. For now, let’s get to the steps to achieve this night out hairstyle. Below is the tutorial.
Night Out Hairstyle Tutorial
- Spray your hair with a volumizing spray. You can also use a salt spray. This will give your hair body and volume. But if you don’t have one, teasing your hair with a brush also works.
- Next, using a thin comb, part your hair on the side, giving one side more hair than the other.
- With a molding cream or strong-hold gel, apply product on the side with less hair, flattening that side to get a tight-combed look on that side. You can also use a thin comb to help flatten that part.
- To secure the tight-combed/flattened hair, use 2-3 bobby pins.
- Now, it’s time to curl the rest of the hair that’s not pinned. Pick up 1 to 2 inch sections and curl in the direction away from your face.
- When you’re done, spray with hair spray to secure everything, especially the pinned side of hair.
And you’re done! By the way, in case you’re curious about the makeup I used, I talked about these beauty products in this post.
