If you love colored strands, but are not about to make the commitment of permanently dying your hair OR maybe your job is NOT pink hair friendly....no problem!  By using colored CHALK on your hair you get wash out fun color instantly - which is perfect for an up do or braid:

Essentially, you rub colored chalk on wet hair (caution:  if you have light blond hair, especially if its color treated, its NOT recommended that you wet hair first, because you might have a tough time removing the color!)

This photo step by step is a great summary of hair chalking
