Yesterday I had a revelation backstage at Dannijo with the geniuses at Sally Hershberger Downtown.  Temporary dip-dye hair is possible - even on dark hair.  I mean, hallelujah.  Here’s the step by step:
                  
The supplies: 
Needless to say, you need spray-on color.  The team used this.  But the essential ingredient is one of the world’s great cult products - PSSSST dry shampoo.
                  
The steps:
The dry shampoo provides a light-colored, somewhat adhesive canvas for  the spray-on color, even on darker hair.  Don some kind of a protective  wrap, and apply liberally.
                 
Finally, layers of color create an ombre effect. You have to be pretty heavy-handed in the color application but the result seemed fairly long-lasting (like, you can work it on a Friday night and it will be still be there at 3am).
                 
While you’re at it, why not apply a layer of glitter? 
                 
The result:
Amazing ombre hair - no bleach necessary.
If you try this, let me know how it goes!  As with any hair experiment, it pays to test it on a strand first, even though it’s just temporary color.  Also, you might not want to wear a light-colored top…
You can see the Dannijo collection over on Holier than Now.

Adorned with turquoise teeth and colorful skull necklaces, beads and crystals, chains and rainbow-colored jewels, the models at DANNIJO’s spring ‘12 presentation at Soho House looked like they were part of the world’s most eclectic (and bright) tribe. Drawing inspiration from cultural opposites like the Mexican holiday, Day Of The Dead, and the soft, and abstract paintings of Mark Rothko, the collection boasts gigantic chieftain necklaces that actually make skulls look cool, oversized fabric bangles that are pure Navajo teen, and chandelier earrings that render passports obsolete. While the entire effect might be jarring—dip-dyed hair clashed with gold chains, a man played the piano with no seat—it was fantastically so, a heavy trip in more ways than one, if you’re into that sort of drug. And we kinda are—if this tribe is taking more members, pass us the peace pipe.
