Halloween is the perfect opportunity to switch up your everyday wardrobe and makeup choices, but what about your hair? At a time when bold, in-your-face getup is more common than ever, there's no better opportunity than the spooky season to test out a zero-commitment strand sitch. Whether you want to go gray, red, orange, or any other color of the rainbow, ahead you'll find 11 temporary hair color products — ranging from single-day use to multi-week wear — that put the finishing touches on your All Hallows' Eve beauty look.
TRUHAIR Color & Play ($22): Absorb oil, add volume, and deliver eye-catching color to your mane with a few dabs of this pigmented hair powder. Available in three festive shades, including Pink Lemonade, Purple Passion, and Sky Blue.
SPLAT 1 Wash No Bleach Hair Color Kit ($7): This one-day hair color provides saturated pigment for what's sure to be a show-stopping good hair day (or night). There are five fun shades to experiment with.
Lime Crime Full Coverage Semi-Permanent Unicorn Hair Color ($16): Thinking you want to take your Halloween hair color past October? Or maybe you want to get the party started before October 31? Whatever the case may be, this 100 percent vegan, semi-permanent hair dye (available in 20 shades) will condition and color your hair for a mane that looks nothing short of magical — even while it fades out in the days and weeks to come.
Clairol Color Crave Hair Makeup ($7): Six shades, one shimmering look. That's right, this hair dye, that washes out in one to two days, doesn't only pump up the color, but the shine too.
IGK Foamo Holographic Hair Foam ($22): Forget about simple, semi-permanent hair color; this holographic mousse takes your look to a whole other level. Wear the dark mermaid-y shade or pastel unicorn hue for Halloween hair unlike any other.
Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint ($12): Not ready to rock a bold hair color? Keep it classic with a head full of rose gold waves. Heck, after one glance you may even want to make this your new go-to 'do.
oVertone Extreme Orange Complete Collection ($47): Instead of just switching up your hair look for one quick night of fun, stock your shower with this color-depositing system that both dyes and conditions strands. Created with a use-it-or-lose-it mindset, these products, which can be used on blonde and brunette hair, are designed to transform tresses and maintain the shade when used regularly, otherwise the dye will fade out gradually.
L'Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray ($10): Made for all hair types and colors, this semi-permanent hairspray, available in 10 bold and pastel shades, works to create hold and high-impact accents.
Brite Liquid Hair Chalk ($12): Feeling extra creative? This creamy hair chalk (sold in six unicorn-inspired shades) lets you paint pictures in your hair for the trippiest tresses you ever did see.
