There are several stages to streaking but if you don’t want to spend the money at a salon, then it is highly possible to get the steaks in your hair at home. Highlighting your hair with two different colors can enable you to look really gorgeous provided you are able to get the right blend in. Streaking is different than highlighting since that way you will get in larger bands of hair that are colored differently. The streaks can be on only one side of your hair or both. On the other hand, highlights will be there throughout your hair. Also, if you want to be more adventurous then you can try out different colored streaks.
The first thing that you need to do is to get ready made streaking strips. They are strips of foil and you will find them in any supply store especially those dealing with beauty products. The next thing that you need is the right sized brush to create the streaks. Then, decide how many streaks you would like to have in your hair and on which sides. Then, apply the bleach to the parts of the hair that you want streaked. After that you can fold over the foil and leave it on for the time specified. After that you remove the foil and add the color of your choice to the hair. And then you can shampoo your hair.
A good idea is to go ahead and buy for yourself a readymade kit that has everything that you need inside it so that you don’t need to go shopping separately for it. It also comes with the most minutest of instruction for you to follow.
