Take inspiration from the well-tressed trio of Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger and Nicki Minaj (for the beauty-brave only, perhaps) and give your mane a dose of festival friendly hair colour without ending up with a full on dye disaster with the new Fudge Urban Colour Chalks.

Set to hit our shelves next month, whether you’re in the mood for super-bold streaks or an instant dip dye, these handy little pots of colour fun are sure to make your locks stand out from the most manic of meadow-moshing crowds.

As easy to apply as they are to pop into your bag, it couldn’t be simpler – just rub the chalk dome directly onto dry hair, work through with fingers and seal in with a spritz of hairspray. Available in 5 versatile and pigmented shades, each allow you to be as daring or discreet as you’d like. If you fancy a wider selection of colours though, just use Iced White on top of your power hued powder of choice to create a softer variation; perfect if you have a penchant for pastels.

Ideal for the dye-shy, they wash out after just one use, giving you a quick colour fix without the commitment. Our favourites? Definitely Festival Pink. No, wait, Pumped-Up Purple. Actually, Electrik Blue’s nice too…forget it. At £5.99 a pop, why pick one. We might just buy them all!

Fudge Urban Colour Chalks will be available from July 2013 at Topshop stores, Superdrug stores or
