Product of the Day: Streekers Temporary Hair Dye
The Goods: Craving a little bit of punky color in your hair à la Katy Perry? Give it a go without risking shade-regret with a non-permanent, liquid color. At $10.95, it's a whole lot cheaper than paying a pro, too. ulta.com
Why It Works: The liquid formula is applied with a foam-tipped applicator and dries soft, without the crunchy, hairspray touch that other temporary color gives (you can run a brush through it!). The formula's fab, but the smartest thing about this pick is that it lets you play around with funky shades with zero committment. We don't care what the stars are doingthere's no surety that hot pink locks will still be in come 2012.
Insider Tip: The trend's most stylish when done as an ombre. Starting with the hair around you face, begin lightly coloring mid-way down your strands. Press firmer, applying more color, as you reach the tips.
