Here at Madison Reed, one of the questions we get asked most often is, how am I supposed to color the BACK of my hair by myself? And, like most questions we get asked, we think the best answer is a video, so we made a tutorial showing you just how easy it is to color the back of your hair. Trust us—we’ve got your back (of head). Ready? We swear, it’s easier than you might think...

  1. Divide your hair into 2 sections.
  2. Divide those sections into 2 more sections. This is best done by creating a part at the top of your ear. Secure that section with a hair tie or clip to keep it out of the way.
  3. Repeat with the remaining 3 sections.
  4. Put on gloves. Take down first back section of hair. Start by applying color to your part, making sure to massage the color into your hair.
  5. Repeat this process with the side section, applying color along the part and hairline.
  6. Starting at top, apply color in small slices of hair as you work your way down, using your fingers to massage color in as you go.

And just like that? You just colored the back of your hair and any hard to reach spots beautifully, evenly, and dare we say—like the pro that you are. Now give yourself a high five because you just mastered the fine art of coloring the back of your hair.
