Add color to your naturally dark tresses by trying dip dyed hair. Here are some ideas to get you started.

There are two things that can give you a quick makeover: getting a haircut and coloring your hair. We’re sure you can’t want to take selfies right after you have your hair dyed. Nothing beats the beauty of newly treated hair. The problem comes when your hair starts growing. You need to touch up your roots as soon as possible so the dye job won’t look awkward. Fortunately, with dip dyed hair, you won’t have to deal with this problem anymore.

Unlike ombre hair, dip dyed hair shows a sharp contrast between the dyed parts of your hair and your natural hair color. There’s no gradient; your natural hair color doesn’t transition little by little to the new one. What’s great about dip dyed hair is that it adds tons of personality to your look. You also don’t have to rush back to the salon once your roots start showing. Now, are you ready for this trend? Here are some colorful ideas.
