Kevin Murphy Color.Bug

I have loved the My Little Pony hair colours that became so big this year, but wanted to try something that didn't involve such a large commitment, and along came Kevin Murphy Color.Bug. I seriously cannot get enough of these! They are little hair shadows and are so perfect for if you want to add a bit of colour to your hair for a night out, and they wash right out, so you don't have to worry if you have work the next day!

I apply a bit of hair gel or wax to my hair beforehand to give the colour something to stick to. I've tried them without using any product first and found that the colour doesn't last nearly as long, nor is it as vibrant, and it runs like anything down your neck/clothes.. not a great look. Considering that I have quite dark brown hair, I wasn't sure that the colours would show up too well, but my hairdresser convinced me to give them a go and I was pleasantly surprised to with the finished result.

They are so easy to use - you just rub the chalk over your hair, blending as desired - make sure you are wearing old clothes or have a towel over your shoulders to protect your as it can get a bit messy! One thing that I would say though, is that having darker hair means I probably do have to use more of the product to get the desired vibrant result, compared to someone with lighter hair. The colour is buildable though, therefore the more you use, the more vibrant the finishing colour.

(This is the pink chalk on my hair, with a gel to hold)

They come in a range of colours; Pink, Purple, Orange, White, and Neon, which is a yellow-y shade. I have them in both the pink and the purple and have loved using both. They cost £13.95 and I buy mine from my hairdresser, but they are available to buy online.

What do you think? Have you ever tried them or any other wash out colours? Let me know in the comments!

Love, Natasha


  1. I was interested in these when they came out a while ago - looks great - although I don't know if it would work on my super dark hair x

    1. I thought the same thing - my hairdresser kindly let me sample one before I bought them so I could see that they would actually work. Obviously the finished shade is going to be different on everybody, but it's my understanding that they do still work on dark hair. The brighter colours such as the neon are meant to be the best at showing up on darker hair, but I was a bit scared to try that one! Thank you for commenting! x
