New Launch: Hair Chalks from Fudge Urban

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 3 - 2013

Hair chalks have been steadily gaining in popularity for over a year now… these little sticks o’ colour offer the kind of hair eccentricity that many of us lust after without any of the regrets a trip to the hairdresser might bring!

If you’re new to the idea, the premise for creating some temporary colour effects is pretty simple…

1. Take your freshly styled hair and ready yourself with the colours you want to use.

2. Grab a towel and wrap it around your shoulders to protect your clothes from any fall-out.

3. If your hair is blonde, you may be able to use the chalks on dry hair… if you’re a brunette or red-head, you may need to wet your hair prior to applying.  This will increase the intensity of the colour but may also cause it to temporarily stain the hair shaft.

4. Starting at the tips and working toward the root, massage the chalk into your hair with your fingers.  Some advocate twisting the strands of hair as this increases the texture and grippiness for the chalk to adhere properly.

5. If you want an ombre effect, gradually apply less chalk as you work your way up the hair strand.

6. Seal the colour in (for around 24hrs) with a shot of hair spray.

In the UK, outside of Groupon and the like, this is the first time I’ve seen them go mainstream and the brand bringing them to the table (helpfully in pots rather than messy stick form!) are Fudge Urban.  The hair chalks will be going live (after having been road-tested last weekend at Glastonbury!) with five colours later this week: Festival Pink, Electrik Blue, Pumped-Up Purple, Red Hot Pepper and Iced White.

Still not sure?  Here’s a great video demonstration of how to apply hair chalks (note: these aren’t the Fudge Urban ones in use and skip to about 3mins 50secs to see the demonstration!)

Priced at £5.99 each, they’ll be available instore and online from superdrug.com… do get in touch with @fudgeurban on Twitter if you have any questions.

I foresee a lot more colour on the high-street next week… will you be trying them?

  1. This is something I’d love to use, doubt it would work on my hair being it’s so dark :( boo! xo

    I bought a set of 3 hair chalks from H&M of all places. You can see it on my Instagram here. It was £5.99 for the 3 but I haven’t tried them out yet, I’ll blog a review when I have!

    I’M IN LOVE. *takes a moment to look at the pictures again*

    I am currently sporting some deep pink stripes hidden in my hair (almost get away with it at work!) but these would be fantastic for colourful weekends.

    I just can’t wait!

    P.s. how gorgeous is the girl with the green tips?!
    (Insert a terrible pun about me being GREEN with envy..)

    I have dark brown hair and I’ve been using TINT hair chalk from Fine Featherheads (in a pot like a big eyeshadow)) for a little while now. They are really great! They are based in the US but they send everywhere and they have a really excellent range of colours too with excellent service. http://finefeatherheads.com/tinthairchalk
