4 Gorgeous Ways To Use Coloured Hair Sprays (Btw They Work in BRUNETTE HAIR)

Long live the Unicorn Hair.

Up until now it seemed like only blondes could have fun experimenting with rainbow hair, but then Fudge Urban launched four new coloured hair sprays that ACTUALLY SHOW UP ON BRUNETTE HAIR. HALLELUJAH. Yeah, we were quite happy about that. So, to celebrate our happiness, we popped into our Beauty Booth and demonstrated four different ways to use them.

Long live the unicorn hair.

1. The unicorn braid

Choose what kind of braid you want; we just went for a relatively simple half-up, half down, straight-down-the-middle type. Spray each of the three strands a different colour, and then start plaiting, bringing in pieces of uncoloured hair as you go. Once you get about half way down, spray the strands of hair again and plait all the way to the end. That way, it creates a kind of ombre effect like ours. Once the plait's finished, pull sections of the braid out to make it look thicker.

2. The rainbow 'hun'

This is a good choice for second day hair (or third or fourth. We're not here to judge). The 'hun' is pretty easy to figure out, but we've got a tutorial here that you can follow if you like. The trick to getting the rainbow effect is to spray three separate strands of hair before you twist it into a top knot. Once it's secured with pins, pull sections out to make it look more messy and slightly lived in, then finish by spraying a bit more colour into your bun.

3. Multi-coloured dip-dye

This one is probably the easiest of the lot, simply take whichever coloured sprays you like and get going. It's best to start about a third of the way down your hair, roughly spraying all the way around your head 'til you're about a couple of inches from the bottom. Then take your second colour spray and overlap the first colour a little bit and then continue right down to the ends - et voila. It's that easy - we didn't even use a mirror when we did ours!

4. Ombre stencils

The great thing about these hair sprays is that there's loads of downloadable stencils available that you can print out at home to use. We went for the zebra stripes, but they've got hearts, stars, rainbows, leopard print - the lot. The stencils work best on hair that's tied back and is sitting quite flat to your head. To use, simply place your chosen stencil wherever you want it, hold it in place (you might need a pal to help you out here) and spray. You can use two different colours to get an ombre effect, or just use one if you're not feeling quite so adventurous. The key is to make sure you leave it to dry for a few minutes before removing the stencil, then use a little bit of hairspray to set the colour in place. Easy!
