Park Avenue, not punk rock, is the feel of spring’s candy-colored hair highlights. Oscar de la Renta sent models with flossy pink, orange, yellow, and blue streaks down his always-uptown runway for spring. Want to try the trend for a month, a week, or just a night? Nina Ganci from Trephin Salon in Downtown Crossing tells you how.
A do-it-yourself Kevin Murphy Color Bug ($20 at Trephin) has enough rub-on color to add multiple streaks, even to long hair. Use a little and save the rest in the Bug; the color lasts only until you wash it out.
For a weeklong change, buy a handful of platinum hair extensions and a pot of Manic Panic at your local beauty supply store. Dye the hair, clip the extensions into yours, and cut to length.
Semipermanent color applied in a salon lasts at least a month. Unless your hair is a light blond, the natural color is first stripped out by a colorist, who then paints on your new shade.
Flat fluorescentsBrighter-than-bright lips got matte finishes on spring runways. Paul Smith showed a blazing red-orange lip, while Missoni went with a neon coral pink. To get the look in real life, try these lipsticks — all moisturizing, yes, but without a stitch of shine.
