Beauty Jobs – Trend Alert: Technicolor Hair

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

Forget the days of traditional hair colours, technicolour hair is here to stay. In the past year, pastel hair shades have received a lot of love from fashionistas and influencers, but it’s a look that will work for every girl who loves to play with her look. If colouring your hair on your own makes you nervous, go to a professional and talk to a stylist about temporary and washable options that you can play with for the first time, but if you are ready to try it at home here are some cool brands that will help you explore this colourful world.

Arctic Fox
Favourite of Youtubers like Tasha Leelyn and Hailie Barber, Arctic fox is an American brand that is cruelty-free and vegan. It’s easy to use, won’t damage your hair and is semi-permanent, meaning it will last for a while will completely fade after a month or two. The brand has an amazing cause behind it, it’s a dye for a cause, as the brand donates proceeds to help animal protection institutions.

Clairol Color Crave
This is the easiest semipermanent colour to use of them all. The tube comes with an applicator, so it won’t stain your hands and comes out after one wash. It’s perfect for newbies that want to experiment with colours without any drastic change.

L’Oreal Colorista
L’Oreal was one of the first drugstore brands to bring colourful hues from the salon and to your home.
This baby is semi-permanent, comes out within a couple of washes and very user-friendly so you give yourself some fun highlights or try colouring your entire head. The product works better for light coloured hair such as blonde and gray, but if you have highlights in your hair that will also take the pastel hues.

 

Lime Crime Unicorn Hair
This brand was known for dominating the makeup game and it has recently transitioned into the hair game. Lime Crime has semi-permanent, easy to apply colours that are perfect for the brand fanatics. It claims to fade gracefully and it’s also vegan, so if you’re looking for something durable, this is your pick. Pro tip: To keep the colour vibrant for longer, wash your hair with a baby shampoo and rinse with cold water. 

Splat Hair Chalk
If you want to play without compromising your original hair colour, hair chalk is for you. All you need to is rub the chalk against your hair and you’ll be left with playful colour that will wash out immediately.
