From powders to sprays to salon treatments, click through for six ways to try hair chalk.
Bumble and Bumble's spray-in color debuted at Ohne Titel's Spring 2014 show, where hairstylist Jimmy Paul used it to add colorful streaks to sleek chignons. To ensure even application, he used white sheets of paper as stencils.
Ideal for dry hair, The Body Shop's version of hair chalk contains nourishing marula and sesame oils.

This 32-piece set is perfect for creating a rainbow or ombré effect.


This powder shows up highly pigmented, even on dark hair. If you're feeling out-there, try applying it on your brows with an angled brush.
Splat's hair chalks come with a sponge, making it easier to apply on braids and around the hair line.
For longer-lasting color, head to a L'Oréal Professionnel salon and try HAIRCHALK, a vibrant color polish that lasts up to 10 washes and won't transfer onto your clothes or pillows. Work with your stylist to create unique looks with one or a combination of the brand's eight shade offerings. We tried it, and can report that it looks amazing and does indeed last for days. The treatment is, however, very drying, so be sure to deep condition beforehand and after washing it out.
