Prom season, graduations, and weddings are approaching. That begs the eternal question: what shall I do with my hair? Straight or curly? Updo or hair jewelry? or….
…what about color?
When it comes to proms, I know more than one couple who matched the color of their hair to her dress, or the school’s colors. Alas, one young man I know used semi-permanent blue to match his date’s gown and it didn’t wash out. The last time I saw him he still looked “Braveheart–ish” — and not by choice!
Enter Streekers. This is truly temporary hair color that lets you have some fun, but only for the moment. It washes out with your next shampoo, so you can get wild tonight, mild, tomorrow for work. Lipstick-style tubes with sponge-tip applicator tops, dispense yellow, purple, blue, orange, yellow, red, green, ultra violet, and even pink color that you just “paint” on. You can use it over hair styling products like mousse, gel or wax, and even hair spray. Even better, you’ll be able to brush your hair after the product dries, and it won’t flake off or stain your clothes. But when you want to remove it, simply shampoo…and it’s gone!!
Although I see this mostly as something younger people will adore (and their parents, will accept), I can imagine bridal parties painting a “highlight” that goes with the bride’s color scheme. If you’re an adult, however, it is still tons of temporary fun. Add some color to your straight style just because it’s a gloomy day. Streak a few different color to stand out at a party. Add a touch of color to a braid, a ponytail, a chignon. For $10.95 each color, you can really make a statement you won’t have regrets about, later on.
I have personally tried several of these colors and enjoyed the double-takes people gave me. You don’t need to coat your entire head–just pick out a few strands here and there and you’ll still get a novel effect.
