A little Red, White, and Blue Temporary Hair Color for July 4th

eyeshadow for hair

In the spirit of July 4th, it’s only appropriate to add some red, white, and blue to your hair, right?

You can do this quick and easy with a gel- or cream-based eye shadow. It washes right out with no problems. Its also very vibrant on all colors of hair.

Check out this quick how-to by Off Beat Home:

  1. Go through your make up bag and pick out your gel- or cream-based eye shadows. I found out that high-pigment, bright eye liners also will work too. Got a bright liquid eye shadow? Give it a try too! The only thing I’ve found that doesn’t work is powder-based eye shadow.
  2. Pick the color(s) that you want to use. I found a liquid eye shadow, a few gel eyeliners, and some cream eye shadows that I decided to use. I’m a budget girl, so most of these were purchased from your average drug store.
  3. Now that you’ve picked your color(s), pick up a small section of your hair and get to color. I’ve also just done the ends of my hair, went for a tie-dye effect by using different colors on the same section of hair — your options are limitless. Just make sure you wash your hands before you start with a new color, as it tends to rub off on your fingers as you color.
  4. Go admire your new ‘do in the mirror. Pull it up into a bun, or wear it loose if you like! However, I would not recommend using heat over your newly colored strands.

Now you try…
