Call it the Katy Perry effect. We’ve noticed a huge surge in celebrities wearing bright hair colours from the dip dye pink on Lauren Conrad, to Selena Gomez’s blue streaks and Katy Perry’s ever-changing colours (pictured here at the premiere of Part of Me in an ultra-violet hue). We think this is a fun summer hair trend that’s not only easy to do, but because it’s temporary if you hate it, you can get rid of it in an instant. We pick four different ways to colour your hair a crazy, bright shade without the commitment.
1. Sultra Hair Color Mascara, $24
We love the concept of mascara for your hair, which comes in 4 pretty shades (including Ultra Pink, pictured). The colour lasts for up to two days and comes out easily with shampoo, so you can easily go back to normal whenever you like.
2. Manic Panic Semi-Permanent Hair Color Cream in Ultra Violet, $12
A popular product amongst celebrities like Nicky Minaj, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry (we’re pretty sure she’s got this shade in her hair now), this semi-permanent hair colour last more than a few shampoos (about 4-6 weeks), so you’ve got to be committed! With over 30 bold colours to choose from, we’re feeling this Ultra Violet hue. Just remember to test before you apply and wear protective gloves.
3. Clip in Colour Extensions, $14
Your lowest commitment option is definitely extensions. Clip in and go, these coloured hair extensions take only 5 minutes or less to put in and can be heated too.
4. Splat Washables Bright Hair Color in Electric Blue, $7
For an easy and affordable hair colour that quickly washes out in one shampoo, try one of the four bold colours from the Splat Washables line. Since it’s not-premanent, you don’t even have to wear gloves when you apply.
