As another football Sunday rolls around, the big game is that much closer. Football’s biggest night of the year calls for a table full of treats, jerseys, and decorations to support your favorite team—so why not take your love up a notch by incorporating your team’s colors into your hair color for the night? We’re talking about using wash out hair color to show your spirit! Keep reading to learn how to amp up your beauty look for the big game by temporarily coloring your hair (and if you’re feeling extra festive, you can rock a spirited makeup look, too).

HOW TO TEMPORARILY COLOR YOUR HAIR FOR THE BIG GAME

Before we get into the specifics, you’ll want to determine which temporary hair color product is best for you. There are two options to choose from: the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray and the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color. Both products wash out in just one shampoo but differ slightly in their application process. The L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray is sprayed directly onto hair from four to six inches away, while the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color is applied to dry hair with your fingers or a brush.

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…RED, WHITE, AND DARK BLUE

Paint your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color so you can precisely place each color using your fingers. Since you’re working with three colors, why not use them to add dimension to a braid? This hairstyle will showcase your team spirit, keep your hair out of your face, and reap plenty of compliments in the process. What’s not to love?

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…BLACK AND GOLD

Add some gold to your mane for game day! You can do so by using the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Gold. While you can add this temporary hair color into your mane however you choose, we personally love the look of dip dyed gold locks. To get the look, simply spritz the spray onto the ends of your hair!

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…PURPLE AND GOLD

Give yourself a hidden pop of color by adding purple and gold to your bottom layer of hair. This will create a peek-a-boo effect that’s perfect for the occasion. Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Purple and Gold to color your strands.

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…GREEN AND GOLD

Want to incorporate hues of green and gold into your mane? Try rocking colorful space buns. This fun, carefree hairstyle is seriously on-trend right now. Give it a spirited flair by coating one bun with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Mint and the other with Gold!

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…BLUE AND RED

Give yourself polished waves prior to coloring your mane. Sleek, polished waves will put your colorful support on display without frizz or flyaways getting in the way! You can do so by following the steps below.

Step #1: Prep your locks

Before you get to curling your hair, you want to make sure your mane is frizz-free. Use the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner.

Step #2: Curl your mane

It’s time to curl away! Spritz a heat protectant onto your strands before making things wavy. Then, use a wide barrel curling iron to create large, loose waves throughout your hair.

Step #3: Add some color

Finish the look by applying the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Blue and BronzeAuburn for a look that screams team spirit!

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…BROWN

If your favorite team has brown as their color, consider giving yourself a temporary balayage ‘do. You can do so by using a bronze temporary hair color, like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in BronzeAuburn.

IF YOUR TEAM COLORS ARE…WHITE AND GREEN

Repping green and white? Keep things sleek and straight, accompanied by a few statement strands colored with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Green.
