Recently we were sent the Hair Highlights kit from Fab Lab to have a play with and see what we thought.
Megan was very excited when she realised we would be experimenting on her hair!
When we opened it up to have a look the instructions were really easy to understand.
The highlighter is coloured powder so nothing that is going to be permanent and will be easy to wash out.
The idea is to slip the hair in thin strips between the highlighter pad and just pull gently down to colour the hair. Simple!!
After putting an old towel around Megan's shoulders to protect her clothes we had a go!
We decided to use different colours to create a wave effect of different colours through her hair.
The powder was very easy to apply. It takes a bit of time as you are using small sections of hair at a time.
Only a bit of powder came out of the pads onto the towel. I was really surprised as I thought it would be messier than it was.
The hair coloured quite quickly. Megs hair is a dark blond colour and the colours altered easily.
All in all it took us about half an hour to do, which wasn't too long for an older child to sit.
Obviously if hair was shorter it would be quicker as there wouldn't be as much hair to colour.
I would certainly recommend this as a Christmas pressie for those girls you know who love messing around with their hair and different hair styles.
