How to Create a Peekaboo Hairstyle at Home

When experimenting with your hair it’s best to leave it to a professional. However, many girls either can’t afford to visit a salon or prefer to color their hair. Because of this, we created this How-to section with a successful color tutorial.

Make sure to heed all the advice if you want to keep your hair incredibly healthy and, most importantly, secure.

Here are some essential tips to consider:

Step 1 – Pick a color

Of course, choosing the color that will peek through your locks is where it all begins. Make sure the color you choose will complement the tone of your skin. It’s essential to consider your complexion when selecting accents, even if they are extremely bright.

Step 2 – Consider your base

Whether you need to bleach your hair depends on its natural color. You can skip pre-lightening if your hair is light.
Additionally, brunettes will undoubtedly need to lighten their manes for the new color to show.

Step 3 – Consider how highlights are placed

Once you’ve chosen the color, you need to consider where it will be applied. Before bleaching and/or coloring, pin or section the inner layers and the number of streaks you want to make bright. The consistency of your streaks is also crucial because uneven highlights are the worst.

Now, here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to create your peekaboo hairdo:

Step 1 – Bleach your hair

Apply vaseline to the hair that won’t be colored to shield it from damaging chemicals. Then, proceed as directed on the bleach package, adjusting the bleach concentration to the length of your hair.

Using a brush, apply the dye, going from top to bottom and covering the entire length of each section.
When applying the bleach, always start with at least a one-inch space between your roots and the bleach!

Once the bleach is prepared let it sit for the allotted time while folding each section in foil. If you prefer not to bleach your hair, you can check out natural methods for lightening without bleach.

Step 2 – Apply the color

Before applying the dye, wash your hair to remove the bleach. Spread the color to the bleached strands after carefully reading the instructions. Wait a few minutes for the color to take shape.

When the color appears, divide the area you will be painting by keeping the color on the foil.
Give it at least 15 minutes before folding the section you’ve highlighted.

You can start washing and drying the item when you’re happy with the color. If not, wait for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
