*We’re excited to partner with Sally Beauty on this sponsored post. DIY lashes and hair color couldn’t be easier!
Throw out the old notion that hair color only comes in blondes, reds, and brunettes. These days beauty artists are getting more and more requests for bright hair colors and bold lashes. We are a vivid generation with lots to say. And thanks to Sally Beauty, you can save big bills on professional treatments by doing your own bold hair and lashes right at home. It seems nowadays everyone is watching DIY YouTube videos and achieving their own amazing results.
Here are our favorite bold hair and lash results that you can test out in the comfort of your own home.
5 Favorite Bold DIY Hair and Lashes
Shake up the norm with an adventurous color change. Dip your toes into aqua waters or test out tranquil lavender. Depending on your commitment level, you can drastically change your hue to last only 4-6 weeks or even longer.
Want to see what a certain color would look like on you? Try on any color right now with the Sally Beauty Virtual Hair Color! It’s so much fun! See what you will look like in any color of hair with just a few clicks. It makes choosing a color much easier.
You can achieve fearless all-over hair color with sprays (only last a day, great for a party or just something fun) drops (lasts between 3-15 washes, just add the desired drops into any conditioner and apply to your hair. So easy!), and creams (these are high-fashion colors designed to be especially vibrant).
I like these drops best because you have more control over what color you get. You can create any shade, or even an ombre effect, and control the intensity, from a light pastel to a vibrant bright. And the color washes out in 3-15 washes so it’s great on a whim. Fun for kids too!

Bold color highlights
When you don’t want to commit to all-over color, a few bright highlights is a fabulous option.
You can use semi-permanent hair color paints from Sally Beauty to DIY your own colored highlights. There are so many vibrant color options from Raspberry to Teal to Wild Orchid.
This color lasts up to 22 washes and you can do it yourself! (It may be helpful to grab a hair color mixing bowl and some gloves.) Start small and simply apply the color paint to selected sections of hair that you’d like highlighted. A popular trend is to start halfway down and focus on the ends.
This video tutorial is super helpful.
DIY colored hair extensions
If you want to add length and color, try coloring your own hair extensions. You can even go with a permanent color. If you don’t already have extensions, grab some here (the clip-ins will give you that amazing pop of color when you dye them).
This video will help you create your own pastel hair color extensions. How gorgeous! Dying hair extensions is probably the best way to play around with bold colors without the commitment.

Embracing silver and gray
One of the most poignant emerging trends in hair color is deliberate silver and gray. Instead of covering up grays when they start to show up, many women have decided to embrace them, going full blown titanium. Going silver is no longer for the aging.

Bold lashes without the appointments
It seems nowadays everyone is going big and bold when it comes to lashes, and for good reason. Eyelashes are the sexiest part of the face, drawing attention to your beautiful peepers. If you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, skip the lash appointments and do your own.
If you’ve never applied false lashes before, don’t worry, it’s fairly easy. This video is a great one for beginners to watch.
