Chalk It Up


Bumble and Bumble Spraychalk

I admit I nearly brushed these Bumble and Bumble Spraychalks aside. I’ve tried so many temporary, tinted formulas that claim to produce vibrant, punk-worthy streaks but instead leave behind watery, washed-out results—similar to what you’d get from the aerosols that line the shelves of cheesy Halloween boutiques. Needless to say, I was tired of the disappointment. One evening at the office, however, I saw the macaron-colored cans sitting on my desk and I thought, “Why not give them a shot?” I started spritzing and couldn’t stop. The shades, much to my surprise, showed up brilliantly on my dark brown hair. (Guess blondes don’t get to have all the fun.) Associate news editor and fellow brunette Katharine Zarrella was so impressed that she employed a combo of bold blue and pink pre-dinner party. When the clouds of mint, blush, lavender, and cobalt finally parted, we exhibited extreme volume and manes that would make the My Little Ponies we left behind in the late-eighties mighty jealous.
