Here are the results of two things that I've dip dyed in the last week: my hair and jean shorts a la Dries Van Norton's S/S 2011 collection. I think they both turned out quite nicely. Some tips you ask? Well as for the shorts, they took a good 3 hours of soaking to get to the almost white color shown in these photos. I used a light denim short (shown in the top right photo and the second row photo here), but I would suggest using a darker denim if you want a more dramatic effect. I would also recommend putting less of the shorts into the bleach than you actually want to strip the color from because capillary action will be sure to creep up on you. For a minute I thought these shorts were going to turn out white all the way through. Other than that, have at it! I would love to see all of your attempts, so be sure to send me some photos.
Ok I won't lie- I didn't dip dye my hair. I sprayed it starting at the bottom and ended up running out... so this is what I got. But I had fun with it anyways :)
It was for Halloween, I was Poison Ivy (see the hat trying to cover up the roots)
And we were all DC comics characters.
