If you have a special cosmetic or costume look coming up, perhaps for a fantasy costume or cosplay look, you might be thinking about creating a beautiful, bright hair look. When it comes to creating this style, though, what is the best course of action to take to get bright colored hair when you don’t really want to add this style permanently? Lionesse has the answers here!
Add Hair Extensions
Hair extensions can add a lot of color and dimension to a look, and are really a great option because they are perfect for a quick fix when it comes to bright, beautiful hair. Simple clip in extensions offer ease of use, and usually come in small strands or larger wafts which can be applied and removed with ease. If you were to want a more permanent hair extension, those are also available at salons.
Use a Wig
Wigs are a great way to really go all out with your bright hair look. Whether you want somewhat of a neon color, a bright red, or another bright, bold color, wigs can add the style, length, or shortness you desire while giving you a simple easy on, easy off approach. It cuts the time in styling way down as the wig is usually already styled – and also, there is no damage caused to your hair due to dying of any sort. It’s a win-win situation – except, when you’re done with using it, you will need to figure out what to do with it next!
Colored Hair Spray
Colored hair spray adds a great pop of color and can look really beautiful if done right. There are many different colors available to achieve any look you want, and the spray is available online, in costume stores, or in large box stores. The best way to apply colored hair spray is to spray the strands in whatever fashion you want to – whether its piece by piece or section by section, or even the tips of your hair – while using a piece of paper underneath to catch the color which might otherwise stain your clothes. From there, allow the spray to dry for a minute, and then brush the hair where the spray was applied. You can then spray the hair again to get a brighter look, and again, brush the hair through to make it nice and soft, yet vibrantly colored. You will want to use a disposable comb for combing through the colored hair as you will otherwise stain your brush, and also, be sure to do the spraying in a well ventilated area as the fumes are quite strong. This hair color can easily be washed out with shampoo in the shower.
Dip Dye Strands
If you want to go for a more permanent approach, you can always dip dye strands in vibrant colors. Manic Panic offers some of the wildest hair colors available and makes it easy to dip dye using a disposable container or cup. The dip dye method will usually last for 4-6 weeks, sometimes longer, depending on your current hair color and the shade you use.
