Technicolor Hair Stencils

Janine Ker is Using Stencils to Create Graffiti-Inspired Hairstyles

— July 25, 2016 — Fashion
Stylist Janine Ker is transforming graffiti on a new canvas with hair stencils for graffiti-inspired hair colors. The temporary look uses technicolored dye to make the patterns really pop. Ker uses patterns like florals, polka dots and hearts that are painted onto the hair.

Ker makes most of her own stencils and they're reusable since she cuts them from washable plastic. She uses temporary hair color sprays to make the patterns really stand out. Since the designs are done with temporary hair color, most wash out after one shampoo. The use of hair stencils and technicolor dye make for fun style options for events like music festivals where everyone is encouraged to dress to express themselves.
