For this tutorial all you need is the following items from Vicious Malicious:


Manic Panic Flash Lightening Bleach Kit


Manic Panic Vampire Red Hair Dye (Other Colours Work Equally Well)


1. Firstly you must ensure your hair is pre lightened, clean and dry!


2. Next put protective gloves on, to avoid any stains on the hands.


3. Apply manic panic hair dye to the root area first, using a tint brush.


4. Follow through to the ends, spreading the dye evenly throughout the hair.


5. Clamp the dyed hair up out of the way.


6.  Using the Manic Panic ‘Dye Away’ wipe, wipe off any skin that may have got on the skin.

image0157. Wash off the dye after approximately 25-30 minutes depending on the thickness of your hair. As you can see I only died the top half of my hair and all of the hair is now red. This is because my hair was so light the red hair dye ran throughout the rest of my hair as I washed it. This saves hair dye so you can reapply once it starts to fade.


8. Dry and style how you wish and voilà bright red hair.

Jodie Rowe shares her hair dying tips in this awesome step by step tutorial!


Step 1- You’ll Need The Following Products:

Manic Panic Hair Dye (I chose Ultra Violet Classic from Vicious Malicious)

Manic Panic All You Need To Dye Tool Kit containing Gloves, Applicator Brush and Colouring Cap

Dye Away Cleaning wipe

Step 1



Step 2: 

Make sure you have bleached hair. The blonder the better!

Step 2



Step 3: 

Wash your hair. This dye must be applied to shampooed hair only. Wash it, but don’t use conditioner, only shampoo.

Step 3



Step 4:

Set up the space you’ll be using with some old towels so you don’t stain any furnishings. Put on an old t-shirt that you don’t mind ruining.

Place the dye in a bowl. You might find on short hair you won’t use all of the dye, and on longer hair you might need more than one bottle.

Step 4



Step 5: 

Separate your hair into sections. Carefully apply from the back of the head upwards. Make sure you use the applicator brush to evenly coat the hair with dye. Don’t forget your hairline!

Step 5



Step 6:

Cover the entire area you are dying, in my case it was my whole head.

Step 6



Step 7:

Rinse your hair with cold water to seal in the dye.

Chances are you’ve managed to get dye on your face, like I did 🙂 Use the Manic Panic Dye Away wipe to wipe off any excess dye on your face, ears, eyebrows or arms. Use the colouring cap to cover your head and leave to develop for 30 minutes. Wash the dye out, paying attention to your scalp, as dye can hide there.

Step 7



Step 8:

Dry how you wish and style!! 🙂

What’s your favourite Manic Panic Colour? xXx

We decided to put together a quick top ten tips to achieve the best results when dying your hair 🙂

1) Pre-lighten your hair to it’s lightest possible shade, we recommend Manic Panic Amplified Bleach Kits (Available Here) or if you’re on a budget you could use a Stargazer Bleach Kit instead (Available Here)

2) Warm colours like red, orange and pink last longer and are easier to achieve vibrant results with, cool colours like blue and green are harder to produce bright results. Our favourite brand here at Vicious Malicious is Manic Panic but we have other brands available at a lower cost as well 🙂

3) Avoid using conditioner for a few days before dying your hair and also use a PH neutral shampoo.

4) Rinse your hair immediately before dying your hair, towel dry it and then apply the dye to damp hair, this keeps the dye moist for longer and enhances it’s dying power!

5) Start at the roots and work your way down, being sure to completely saturate your hair from root to tip.

6) Have a spray bottle(similar to the ones gardeners use), set it to a fine mist. When the dye in your hair begins to dry out spray a mist of water over your hair to keep the dye moist and continuing to do it’s job.

7) After you’ve applied the dye and moistened it for a while, cover your head and hair with a shower cap or dying cap and wait. We’ve heard stories of people leaving the dye in their hair with a shower cap on and going to sleep for the night! Always make sure you don’t leave the dye in any longer than stated by the manufacturer.

8) To speed things up and provide even brighter results, grab a hair dryer on a low heat and pass it gently over your entire head, being sure not to leave the hair dryer on one spot for too long to avoid burning yourself!

9) After your hair dying is finished and you’re happy with the results, try to avoid using shampoo as much as possible. You’ll lose a notch of vibrancy every time you shampoo and I’m sure you’ll agree that’s the last thing you want! 😉

10) You can use conditioner after dying your hair to help it recover from the trauma of being dyed, however this won’t be necessary if you use a dye that’s kind to your hair, such as Manic Panic. To help keep your colour topped up add a few teaspoons of the left over dye to your conditoner bottle and apply this to your hair every time you take a shower.

All you need now is the dye!
