  • Go to the hair supply shop in your area. Mine in my area is sallys. You may have one if your in the USA.

  • they have stuff at sally's beauty supply but it stays in a long time...when I was in high school I used cool aid with water and vinegar and soaked it in my hair...that lasted for months though. I started getting manic panic at sally's or certain stores like hot topic or ipso facto...Don't know where you live...but some skater shops or goth shops have that stuff. it actually goes away as quick as cool aid but doesnt look as dark and viberant.

  • also the best way to color hair by getting it in small parts like leopard or stripes or something is using a toothbrush that works GREAT!

  • easiest way ... go to spencers they have a larger selection in the store. Get the Hair lighting kit but only if your child's hair is really dark. If it is already blond or dirty blond just using the dye is fine. Also hot topic has it too.

  • Are you wondering how to do it or what product to use?
    How old is your son? Do you want it temporary?
    There are a lot of things I'd need to now before answering... PM if you want.

  • My sister buys my son colored hair glue (I think it's called Spikers) at the beauty supply store- they have wild colors like metalic silver, blue, green, etc. It washes out easy.
