Guests at Leanne Marshall SS14
There are many learnings we can take away from NYFW SS14, one of which —-> cool-kids crayola hair color is here to stay. And as with ombre, it’s no longer a trend but a style.
Front the runway to the front-row, we saw shocking shades of blue, green, pink and purple. It was predominantly paired with a disregard for conformity and killer confidence. And it looked good.
I decided to test it out – but you know… baby steps.
So I ran a temporarily teal tint through select strands using SPLAT Hair Chalk in Mint Candy.
SPLAT HAIR CHALK. [Note: This post is not sponsored. Sample was provided for review.]
I started by spritzing my hair with a light coating of hairspray to give it some stick at around 6pm. I then applied the rub-on color as directed running the hair in-between the color pan and my thumb. I then spritzed over the hair again with hairspray to seal the product and minimize color transfer onto clothing. There was no fallout whatsoever and I just had to wash my hands to remove the color from my fingers.
I loved the way the color popped against my dark hair and was shocked at how vivid it was.
I was mindful not to touch or play with my hair (not as easy as it sounds). I had on a black top and saw no evidence of the pastel brushing against it.
The chalk lasted well past midnight, when I washed it out to avoid potentially seeing it on my pillowcase in the morning. It did not stain my recently color-treated ends.
The photo below has no filter and no retouching at all. What do you think??

I personally dig it and would definitely do it again. May have to pull a Kelly Osborne and go for the Violet Sky next…
