Girls are getting more and more adventurous with their hair color. Color paneling is when hair is split up into large sections and dyed in bold blocks of color.
Color panels open you up to a whole new range of styles and looks. When you play with your hair and try different parts the panels will break up and look very different in each and every style which is perfect for a girl that likes to keep things new and exciting. There are a couple of drawbacks to panel coloring and some things you want to keep in mind to maintain the panels of color. Here are some tips on how to keep your color panels fresh:
Try to keep a portion of hair your natural color. If you are dying both sections of hair different colors then you are risking the colors spreading into the wrong section especially if a portion of your hair is bleached. You can do panel coloring at home but your best bet will be visiting a salon. If part of your hair is bleached be very careful when applying color and make sure you keep panels separated. Make sure you keep your roots touched up and your ends trimmed.
Your color and style will look much fresher if you maintain your growth. This is especially important for girls who are wearing a section of their hair blonde. If you are using bright colors, especially red, you will want to make sure you keep color at home to touch up your hair if it fades. Use color protecting shampoo and conditioner to help reduce the fading of color.
Know how much time and money you can devote to keeping up your panel coloring. If you can’t afford to touch up your color every couple of weeks you may want to consider keeping the entire top panel of hair your natural color and dying the bottom panel a different color. This way growth will not be as noticeable. If you create a panel on the top of your head you will really need to be ready to keep freshening up the color. Also, remember to pick a hairstyle and cut that flatters your new color. Side swept bangs or layers will really help the color show through and look amazing with panels of color.
