Gwen Stefani is the ultimate punk princess, and she’s been experimenting with bold dip dye colors on her platinum hair that make for the ultimate Halloween hair accessory. Channel your inner rock star by copying her fun look!
Gwen Stefani, 46, has been temporarily tinting her platinum blonde hair with a rainbow of colors since she first appeared on the scene. The singer’s most recent color switch up at her NYC concert on October 17 was a blue color blocked look that you can get whether your hair is blonde or brunette thanks to tips from Matrix SOCOLOR Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas.
If you want to make this dip dye look a more permanent style, George says to be warned that it requires a lot of upkeep. “You need to refresh the color every two weeks as the vibrant tones fade very quickly. It also requires you to pre-lighten the hair very pale blonde first before you can apply the [other] shades. The pre-lightning can be very harsh and damaging on [the hair] so extra moisture from Matrix Biolage HydraSource Mask is mandatory.” Whenever severe pre-lightening is required, you’ll definitely want to head to a salon to avoid damaging your hair.
If you want a look that will last through Halloween but can wash right out, use a spray like Rita Hazan Pop Color, which comes in bright blue, pink and purple shades. Once you’ve styled your hair for the night, you section your hair off and spray directly where you want the color.
