Just a touch of hair color can add flavor to your buns, braid outs, twist outs, you get my point! About 1'' of hair was sectioned off at the nape and color was applied. We used Dark & Lovely in Honey Blond. Since her hair is dark, it didn't lighten up to the actual color on the box, but it went a few shades lighter. Always follow the instructions on the box for the safest results. A weekly deep conditioning treatment will be added to her regimen to ensure moisturized hair. Chunking color to the back section of the hair shows up mostly when your hair is placed in a high bun (as shown here). It also peeks through when your hair is worn down while straight. It's a really fun option!
