Lauren Conrad’s pink hair might have been more accidental than intentional, but the result still poured more fuel a trend that’s been burning hot for several years now. While Lauren’s locks were the result of an Indian tradition involving throwing powdered, colored dyes on each other (part of the festival of color known as Holi), there are other, easier — though arguably not as much fun or spiritual — ways to get colorful chunks of hair.
One option is to try out hair chalk like Free People Ombre Hair Chalk ($14 at freepeople.com). Each metal tin comes with five different shades of colors (choose from blue, black, pink, green and yellow) that apply easily to your hair for a fun effect. With hair chalk you decide how dark you want the color to be, and whether you want to just color the ends or the entire strand.
Or another, commitment-free way is to pick up colored extensions, like the Pop by HairUWear Clip-In Color Strips. They come in 6 fun colors, Amethyst, Blue, Gold, Pink, Purple and Red and are only $10 each at ulta.com. Fasten them in hair when you want them and leave them home when you don’t!
