Fashion hair colors like blues, pinks and purples have taken over the hair industry (not to mention, Instagram) and they’re definitely here to stay. If you can offer clients a fun temporary hair color, you have the chance to build a long-lasting relationship that may increase client retention. They’ll trust your opinions and suggestions because they know you’re up-to-date on everything hair and beauty.

We offer temporary colors for every occasion, whether it’s a retail product for your on-the-go clients or a direct dye applied in the salon. For this article, we’ll compare temporary liquid fashion colors—definitely a mainstay product in 2016, whether it’s in a spray, cream or liquid form. We’ll show you the differences so you can make the best choice for your salon and budget.

Temporary hair color is named as such because it doesn’t use a chemical reaction that permanently colors the hair. This is different than demi-permanent or semi-permanent hair color in the fact that it’s truly temporary. In fact, most of these products are available for you to apply to clients in the salon and also to sell them as retail products, which makes it easy to introduce.

Liquid temporary color is great because it has the same look and feel as a demi-permanent, semi-permanent or permanent color (it doesn’t rub off on clothes or hands), but only lasts a few washes, depending on what product you’re using. It’s great for your commitment-phobe clients who are afraid to part with the way their hair looks. Of course, the longevity of the product depends on hair’s color, porosity and the way you apply.
