Celebs like January Jones have let spring’s bright colors go to their heads, and now you can too! Certain salons are now offering color bars, where you can get a temporary flash of color added to your hair via hair chalking or colored clip-in extensions. The best part? There’s no commitment.
I recently got to check out The Color Pop Bar at The Private Room in Beverly Hills, Calif., where they use non-toxic 100% pure pastels from France “to ensure vibrancy and optimal coverage.”
There, stylist Marlena Sater added blue streaks to my hair by “coloring” select pieces with pastels. She then braided a bright turquoise clip-in extension across the front of my head. The result was just the right amount of color and looked on trend, not overboard.
When I was ready to take it out, all I had to do was remove the (now reusable) extension and wash out the chalk. Tip: If you want to preserve the chalking overnight, wrap your hair up in an old scarf to avoid getting color on your face and pillow.
The Private Room is located at 9414 Brighton Way, Beverly Hills, Calif.
Hair chalking starts at $10 and colored extensions start at $15 per piece/color. Call 310.247.2228 to make an appointment.
