Are you stuck in a rut? Feeling restless and want to spice up your life? Well, Missy gals, I have two words for you. Hair Chalk. Yes, you heard me; non-permanent,pastel-coloured hair is the trend on everyone’s lips and hair tips. Look no further than the recent Myer SS15 Fashion Launch. Jennifer Hawkins sashayed down the runway with fairy-floss pink streaks, while her model minions followed with retro-style bobs in delicious shades of lavender, dusty blue and mint green. To create this rainbow runway, Kevin Murphy and his team used the Colour.Bug product, which retails for under $25. Other colour-popping products are easily available from Priceline, such as Fudge Urban Hair Chalk or alternatively head to your local art store and buy some chalk pastels. This trend works on all hair types and colours, so forgo the bleach and Balayage. It’s out with the Ombrè and in with the new!
Now before you start stressing out and wondering…what will my boss/boyfriend/brother/barista think?!? Rest assured, this kaleidoscopic trend is not only cheap and cheerful, but also totally temporary (perfect for those with commitment phobias!). Hair chalk creates a similar look to dye, but washes out completely in the shower. Put it in Saturday and come work or school Monday it will be but a faint tinge, like a distant memory of the weekend past. To prove it I put my own blonde locks to the test…and I must say I think the pink is here to stay! I feel like a different girl. A wild, spontaneous girl, that thrives on adventure and living life on the edge. So before you throw in your resignation letter and book a one-way ticket to Paris, embrace the pastel-hair trend this weekend. It’s the perfect pick-up without the
hefty price tag.
