Halloween is just around the corner and the quest to find the perfect costume is on! Here at Salon Trusted, we know that the right hair colour can make or break your look, taking it from a basic costume to a spooktacular masterpiece. After all, what’s Cruella de Vil without her monochrome two-tone do, or Jessica Rabbit without her iconic red waves?
Temporary hair colours are the ideal solution to transform your outfit, without having to commit to a bold new look in the long run or fork out for a synthetic wig. With that said, Halloween can also be the perfect time to try out that hair colour you’ve always wanted to give a go, and with some temporary hair colours lasting up to 10 washes, this is just the right amount of time to truly try and test an exciting new look before committing for good. We’ve picked out our favourite temporary hair products below that’ll help you stand out at the Halloween party this year!
Schwarzkopf BlondMe Instant Blush
These hairsprays are perfect for adding a subtle pastel touch to your locks, without the commitment of an all-over look. Choose from steel blue or jade, and spray these pastel tone colours all over your hair, or use it just for highlights. Get creative, we think these would work perfectly for a Harley Quinn costume! Not only do the sprays give your hair a gorgeous pastel hue, but they also work to keep your hair strong, healthy and shiny. The colours can last up to 3 washes, depending on your hair type so there’s no long-term commitment. They’re currently reduced from £17.25 to £10.99 so snap these up quick!
Sibel Glitter Hairspray
Sometimes all you need is a touch of sparkle to add an extra something to your Halloween look. These glitter hairsprays come in gold, silver and multi-coloured and are the perfect add on for your party look, adding some sparkle and holding to any updo. Whether you’re dressing up as a unicorn, a fairy or a mermaid, simply spray on and wash out as normal.
Colorsmash Color Kissed Hairspray
Hair colour sprays are the quickest and easiest way to colour your hair for Halloween. These hairsprays will change up your hair in an instant, giving you a bold fun look that can easily be washed in 2-3 washes. They’re currently reduced from £14.95 to £9.95 so now is the perfect time to try something new. Not only does the spray deliver uniform colour, thanks to the nutrient-rich dye formula but it also makes your hair appear nourished and healthy. The selection of indigo, teal, violet and pink would work perfectly for a huge array of Disney characters, the hardest part will be choosing which colour!
SoColor Blow Dry Colour
Ready for a colour revolution? For the first time, you can add temporary colour whilst you blow-dry your hair, changing up your look in an instant, and easily wash out in just 1 wash. The innovative new product from Matrix, priced at £25.00, adds a professional edge to temporary colour, simply wash your hair as normal, shake and dispense the colour onto your hair using a colour brush. Comb through to ensure an even application, blow dry your hair and watch the transformation take place! The platinum silver would be perfect to achieve Marilyn Monroe’s or Gwen Stefani’s iconic platinum locks, but you can also choose from blooming orchid, stonewash denim, titanium silver, golden blonde, hot pink and iridescent rose.
If you’re open to your Halloween hair sticking around into November, colour conditioners are the perfect choice as they provide a taste of new hair colour, whilst preserving the health of your hair. The Indola colour blaster toning conditioners provide vibrant colour results whilst smoothing the hair structure to increase shine, suppleness and sleekness. Apply to damp towel-dried hair after shampooing, leave on for anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes before rinsing and watch the glow-up happen!
For those who want to jazz up their existing hair colour, the vibrant copper and cool brown conditioners are ideal, whereas those more adventurous cans choose from intense lavender grey and bold red. The bold red can help you achieve the infamous Jessica Rabbit locks whilst the lavender grey can create a look that even Kylie Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala would be jealous of. The colour can last anywhere from a few weeks to a month, depending on your hair type, colour base and the amount of product used but you can always top it up with another treatment whenever you’d like. Priced at just £11.99, that’s a steal.
Infuse My. Colour Shampoo
If you’re looking for a more subtle change, these shampoos could be for you. These vegan and cruelty-free shampoos with zero nasty chemicals are changing the temporary hair colour game. Priced at £16.99, they work to your individual hair colour to maintain, enhance, refresh, balance or treat your locks. The Ruby shampoo can add a warm red glow to dark brown hair, rich red tones to light brown hair and striking pink tones to bleached hair. Say hello to Frenchy from Grease! Why not get your friends involved and go as the Pink Ladies? Similarly, the Cobalt shampoo keeps black hair inky black, neutralises red or orange tones for brunettes and transforms bleached hair with bold green and blue tones. This would be ideal for a Beetlejuice or Joker inspired outfit! There’s a whole host of colours to choose from, from gold to quartz, to graphite, to copper so there’s something for every hair colour and every desired look.
