Hot in 2012: Temporary Hair Color?

ThakoonVogue is calling it a hot new hair trend of 2012, featured on the Spring 2012 runways of Thakoon, Narciso Rodriguez, and on actresses ranging from the Olsen twins to Katy Perry to Riley Keough.

Shocking hair color hues are on our horizon, and you might as well get used to seeing them now.

The real question, though, is this: Will you wear them?


Don't worry, darlings. You no long have to go permanent with bright pink, blue, or purple.

Vogue cites Kevin.Murphy's new Color.Bug in pink, purple, and orange:

It's basically makeup for your hair, it lasts only until you wash it out, and it sounds like it would be fun to try. Kevin.Murphy products are available in many salons (for example, my salon, Salon Nfuse here in Nashville, carries them) -- you can find a full listing of salons carrying Kevin.Murphy products on the website.

However, experience has taught me the hard way that Kevin.Murphy products can be very expensive. That's why there's also Manic Panic Dye Hard Temporary Hair Color Styling Gel (, $8.40)! Take that, Kevin!

Honestly, I don't know that I'd ever try wild hair color, unless it was for an episode of "I'll Take That Dare." I'd feel like people would look at me and think, Now there's a mom who's trying too hard.

But I'll never say never. Maybe the trend will go mainstream, and two years from now, everyone will be doing it, from 11-year-olds to great grandmothers!

In the meantime, are you looking forward to trying out this trend?
