Holy Pinterest and Instagram inspiration Batman.
Ever since I first saw a few dip dye pins roll through my feed a few months ago, I’ve been lusting after the dreamsicle dipped locks for my own. Luckily for me one of my bestest friends, Rikki from Hair Ya Go, happens to be one of the most talented hair and fashion stylists I know, and loves to play dress up. If she could dress me everyday, I would DIE for that.
This girl has so much sass and style, she ALWAYS inspires me to try new things and take my looks to new levels. More importantly, whatever she rocks be it a pixie cut, and her own handmade cut off dip dyed jeans, she actually ROCKS it. Owns it and never questions how it looks. Confidence to truly envy and strive for. When I told her I wanted to dip dye my hair, she was of course game.
We decided on haute pink aka my favorite color of all time, purple and blue. I even brought my bestie Savannah along so we both could rock some my Little Pony locks. And a bottle of chambubbly.
Everything Rikki touches oozes with style, love her hair menus!
First step. Sit down, glass of chambubbly in hand.
Rikki did about 6 inches of color just foiled on my tips.
And for Savannah she went more for a “tie-dye” look and layered colors in each tipped foil.
Looking good Savy!

Dip Dye BFFs
In love with my dip dye! If you are dye-ing to try it, here’s a few tips from Rikki:
- Choose you colors ahead of time and communicate them with your hairstylist so that he/she can purchase them ahead of time
- Tell your stylist to “feather” the tips- that works best
- Depending on whether you have light or dark hair will affect the color. If you have dark hair it may not come out as bright, if you want it to be dramatic with dark hair, you should bleach the tips first for more drama.
- Less is more sometimes, you can always add color, but taking it away is more difficult.
At the end of the day, it’s just hair, you can cut it off and start over. So do what you dare and own it.
