Summer Trendsetter: Having Fun with Temporary Hair Tints

It’s the season for temporary tattoos, whimsical clothing, accessories and easy breezy hair color. Now that my hair is lighter, it’s fun to play with sprays and wash in colors…without having any commitment to anything long term. There are lots of fun colors out there, just read the directions carefully before you apply. I like my color super subtle, so I applied this Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint in the shower to my wet strands and only kept it in about 60 seconds. I then rinsed and towel dried and styled as usual.

So what makes these tints special are the unique and playful hues and the fact that they wash in and easily wash out, typically after a wash or two. Make sure that when you are playing around with wild colors that you don’t have anything planned that these colors wouldn’t work for, as they can take a few washes to return to your natural color. These are all meant to be short term colors…if you need something longer then look for semi-permanent or permanent colors instead.

Here are some favorites to choose from…
