Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

Lauren Conrad (TV personality, fashion designer and founder of thebeautydepartment.com) started the trend, and now just about every single hipster alive has multicolored hair. Here’s a step by step for deliciously dip-dyed locks.
• Bleach packet and 10 ounce developer
• Manic Panic (any color you want)
• Comb and hair clip
• Hair color applicator
• Aluminum hair foils (or cut pieces of regular foil into 6 x 6 inch squares)
• Plastic cup
1. Unless you have blond hair, you need to bleach your ends before you do anything with the color or the color will not take. The ends of darker hair should be bleached to a light caramel/honey color.
2. Mix the bleach packet and developer (equal parts) and put into one plastic cup. Separate hair into two layers and pin up the top layer with a clip. Start first with the bottom layer and comb bleach through hair. The area to be dip dyed should be about 2-3 inches for short hair and at least 5-6 inches for long, depending on how much color you want in your hair.
3. Once the bleaching process is done, wash out the bleach completely and blow-dry ends.
4. Now you’re ready for the color of your choice. Separate hair into layers again, working the bottom layer first. Put the color in a plastic cup, dip the ends of your hair in, comb color through your hair and wrap all the ends in foil so the color doesn’t get on the rest of your hair. Repeat process 4, until all of your ends are foiled.
5. Leave the color in for about 15-20 minutes. Wash out, shampoo, condition, blow-dry and style. Voila! Dip dyed hair is now yours.
