Rose gold hair: All that glitters is gold—make that rose gold. Rose gold hair was one of the trendiest hair colors of 2017, so close out the year by showing off a pretty metallic take on rose gold. Spray rose gold color all over for an eye-catching look. Don’t forget to throw on some rose gold accessories while you’re at it!
Unicorn hair: Why apply one hair color when you can apply multiple hair colors? Take the unicorn hair color trend for a spin by using our temporary hair color sprays in pastel mint, pastel pink, pastel lavender, and pastel blue. Create an ombré effect by focusing colors on the ends of your hair.
Gold hair: Take inspiration from all those glasses of bubbly champagne you’ll be drinking as you count down to midnight by showing off gold hair on New Year’s Eve. Gold is one of the most festive colors out there—it’s perfect for the holiday season!
Silver hair: Another festive color that translates beautifully to hair is silver. Give tinsel-inspired silver hair a try for NYE for a shimmery look that can’t be beat. Pair it with a LBD for an update on a classic.
Purple ombré hair: If dark hair colors are more your things, try purple hair for New Year’s Eve. Spray hair at the ends for an ombré hair color. Keep your makeup and outfit simple so that your hair color is the star of the show. (Speaking of makeup, here are 3 Palette, 9 Perfect New Year’s Eve Makeup Looks.)
How to Use Our Temporary Hair Color Sprays
Once you’ve decided on a New Year’s Eve hair color, it’s time to apply it! Follow our step-by-step instructions below.
Step 1: Protect your clothes. Don’t put on your NYE outfit just yet. Wear old clothes while you’re spraying on hair color. Place a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothes.
Step 2: Shake the can. Before spraying on hair color, shake the can well.
Step 3: Spray on hair color. Holding the can 4-6 inches away from your head, spray hair color onto dry hair.
Step 4: Wait. Be patient! Wait a few minutes for your holiday-approved hair color to dry completely.
Just keep in mind that over-spraying your hair may cause it to feel dry, so abide by the rule less is more. And if you’re looking to rock an allover hair color, you may need to use more than one can. Once the clock strikes midnight and it’s officially 2018, wash out your hair color—and consider giving another hue ago in the new year, whenever it suits your fancy.
