How to Use Colorista 1-Day Sprays How to Use Colorista 1-Day Sprays How to Use Colorista 1-Day Sprays

Maybe you’ve been considering a rainbow hair color, but you aren’t quite ready to use permanent hair color. Leaving behind your natural blonde hair, brown hair, or red hair can be a difficult choice to make—even if you love the way rose gold hair and pumpkin spice hair look on your friends. Well, allow us to let you in on a little secret. Rainbow hair doesn’t necessarily have to be a major commitment—you can take an out-there shade for a test drive temporarily with our L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Sprays, which last one shampoo. Keep reading to learn how to pick the most flattering shade of rainbow hair for you, how to use our temporary hair color sprays, and how to style your rainbow hair while you have it.


Ready to try a rainbow hair color—for a day, that is? Say hello to our line of Colorista 1-Day Sprays, which come in 10 trendy shades: rose gold, blue, gold, hot pink, pastel blue, pastel lavender, pastel mint, pastel pink, purple, and silver. If you’re interested in trying out an ever-popular rainbow hair color—without worrying about whether or not you’ll get sick of the color and having to schedule frequent touchups—then pick up our temporary hair color sprays. If you want to show off as a trendsetter, go for rose gold hair. If you’re all about unicorn hair, try spritzing on a few pastel shades to different areas of your hair.


Now that you’re familiarized with our temporary hair color spray, you surely want to know how to use one, right? Well, that’s what we’re here for. Follow these simple steps to give your hair a (temporary) hair color change.

Step 1: Choose your hair color(s). If it wasn’t already obvious, you won’t be able to color your hair temporarily without first picking out which color, or colors, you want to use first. Try picking one shade that suits your look or a few that will blend beautifully together. You can also seek out pictures for inspiration and consider whether you want your updated color all over if you prefer hidden rainbow roots or dip-dyed hair.

Step 2: Protect your clothes. Place a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothing.

Step 3: Shake, shake, shake. Shake the can well before each use.

Step 4: Get ready to spray. Hold the can 4-6 inches away from dry hair and spray.

Step 5: Be patient. Wait a few minutes for the color to dry completely.

What to keep in mind: Less is more! Over-spraying your hair may cause hair to feel dry. Also, if you’re looking for allover color, you may need to use more than one can.


Who needs heat? Not you! While you’re rocking a rainbow hair color is a perfect opportunity to embrace your natural texture and go heat-free. Whether you have straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair, there’s an air-dried style that’ll work for you. Have your pick from three of our favorites, below.

1. Beachy waves: Anytime you’re sporting freshly-colored hair, beachy waves are a solid style choice. To achieve this almost-effortless style, you’ll need the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, which enhances hair’s natural shape and definition without leaving residue behind. The lightweight hair spray helps provide hold for a textured wavy look. Spritz it throughout towel-dried hair, then scrunch and allow to air dry. If hair is naturally straight, after applying hair spray put your hair into a braid or two to create waves.

2. Voluminous curls: When you’re working with hair that has more shape and texture, there’s no need to try and tame it. Instead, take it to the next level. For curls with volume, reach for a hair mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse. The rich, lightweight hair mousse builds body, enhances curls (and waves!), and provides hold. To use, shake well and dispense hair mousse into your palm. Apply to clean, damp hair, evenly distributing product from roots to ends. Scrunch hair, then allow to air dry. For added body, try flipping your head upside down to scrunch!

3. Soft texture: Super-defined texture isn’t right for everybody. In that case, you can opt for a look that’s more “undone.” Seriously, a hairstyle that loosely resembles your best bed head is totally on trend! To get the look, use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream. The conditioning hair cream added softness and shine, without weighting hair down. Work the hair cream into damp hair, evenly distributing it through the length of your hair, using fingers as a comb. Then allow to air dry.
