I started off with my hair bleached as light as I could get it without damaging it too much. There are tons of great articles on the site to help you with that!
I started with the short side, and just sectioned the longer part of my hair up on top of my head, to the side.
I applied the yellow dye first. I used Directions Fluorescent Glow. First I applied it around my parting, then down a little further than I wanted it to be yellow, all around the short part of my hair.
Next I applied the orange. I used Stargazer Dawn. I painted it over my hair in a fiery pattern, going over the bottom of the yellow, like so:
Finally I applied the red dye (Stargazer Foxy Red) over the rest of my hair, and over the bottom of the orange.
I ended up with this:
So with that done, I took down the long side of my hair. I wanted to keep my gradient even, so I sectioned layer by layer as I went along, starting from the top, and working my way down.
I started, again, with the yellow, and again I applied it further down my hair than I wanted it.
To get the lower layers I sectioned the dyed layer to the front, and clipped it in place.
Then I applied the pink. I used Directions Flamingo Pink. Again I layered it a little over the top of the yellow, and then all the way down to the tips.
Finished, it looked like this :
And when all done, and dry and styled:
And there we are!
