I am so thankful that there is an array of temporary ways to color your hair! As a woman, I have a lot of fun changing my appearance whenever the mood strikes me. When I was younger I used to dye my hair constantly, at one point it was red with bleached tips and it looked like I had flames for hair. I’m in my late 20s now and getting a job usually requires me to look what they consider to be, “acceptable,” but I still like to play around with my hair color, so I use a lot of these temporary ways to color your hair on my long locks whenever I’m going out for a night, or just feel like messing around with the way I look. If you’re looking for a fun, new 'do, try one of these!

A lot of the temporary ways to color your hair don't show up well unless you're blonde, but this works really well for dark hair, like mine. You can buy “hair chalk” but it doesn't work as nicely as buying chalk pastels (NOT oil based) that an artist would use. You can get them relatively cheap and the results are much better.
If you have dark hair, spray the sections you want with water until they are damp.
If you have blonde hair, don’t wet it.
Pick your color and rub it up and down your tresses, twisting the section of hair as you go to coat both sides.
Allow your newly colored hair to dry (or blow dry it if you’re in a hurry).
To set the color in so it is less likely to rub off on clothing or furniture, use a hair straightener to seal the strands.
I suggest using an old straightener as it does leave color residue behind.
