We’ve all seen the trend for bright, poppy, candy colors in hair. While many people, like myself, love these shades, you may not be ready to sport such bold colors permanently; or maybe you like the style, yet can’t commit to one color, preferring to change it up weekly. Hair chalk is the answer. If you aren’t familiar with it, it is essentially makeup for hair. A temporary hair color, it washes away faster than the spray-in colors you may have used during Halloween. It’s a great way to test out a hair color you are considering for a permanent hue, and makes a fun and surprising change-up for a night on the town. Best of all chalk is easy and creative to play with at home, and works great on dark and light hair. Want to learn how to hair chalk?

A splash of color at the tip of your strands will add playful brightness to your hair this season. An update on the dip-dye trend, this look keeps the accent hue within the bottom two inches of the ends. We love the look with ocean inspired hues like turquoise, cerulean, and Robin’s egg blue. These cool tones pair especially well with platinum blondes and ashy brunettes, and they’re easy to achieve with hair chalk. Read on for simple steps to chalking your tips. –– Laura Martin

Hair chalking is a great way to get temporary color effects, but it has some down sides. It can be messy to apply, it dries out your strands, and can stain pale shades for longer than expected. New bumble and bumble spray chalk offers a great alternative. The product comes in an easy-to-use aerosol spray. It thickens and adds matte for a low sheen finish that doesn’t dehydrate your locks, and it promises to be gone in one shampoo, making it perfect for a night on the town. Read on for tips on using this exciting new product. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

With the advent of ombre, all kinds of imaginative dip-dyes have come into fashion; purple, pink, and other pastel-gelato shades are now some of the most desirable hair colors, especially in summer, when we want to feel glee and free. This has led to many girls wanting to get their My Little Pony on, but the commitment of a permanent pink can be a little scary. Happily, hair chalking has also risen to prominence. It is a way to temporarily ‘chalk’ color onto locks at home. The best bits: there are a rainbow of colors to choose, they wash out easily, and you can place the colors anywhere you want them. When applying, use chalk to highlight a bang or braid or bun, or to create a multi-tonal hue. Most important, make chalking playful and fun. Click the Style Notes for some tips…
