What do Megan Fox, Hilary Duff, Faith Hill, Joey King and Jennifer Lopez have in common? They’ve all experimented with pink hair, Fox most recently. It was a huge trend during the pandemic lockdowns and continues to be a fave of celebrities wanting to switch it up — temporarily. That’s probably why ColourPop is getting into hair for the first time with The Mane Event, a collection of semi-permanent hair tints, color conditioners and hair clips at super affordable prices.
Of course, there’s more than pink to choose from. In fact, there are six shades: Raspberry, Peach, Silver, Turquoise, Violet and Chestnut. Each features a conditioning formula that includes vegan keratin, mango butter and amla extract, free from parabens, bleach, sulfates and ammonia, making them great for all hair types — including previously dyed strands.

Now, what’s the difference between hair tints and color conditioners? Well, you’ll use them both when going a fun color. First, apply The Mane Event Hair Tints ($14 at ColourPop) to wet or dry hair (we find dry hair makes for bolder color) for 30-45 minutes. Keep the color fresh with a corresponding The Mane Event Colouring Conditioners ($16 at ColourPop) in the place of your regular conditioner. Just leave it on in the shower for 5-10 minutes. If you want more of a wash of color than a bold shade, just use a Colouring Conditioner without a Hair Tint.
Of course, ColourPop isn’t the only brand to make colorful, semi-permanent hair dye. We love OVertone Haircare Semi-Permanent Color Depositing Conditioner in Rose Gold ($32 at Amazon) and Rose Gold for Brown Hair ($32 at Amazon). Lime Crime ($17 at Ulta Beauty) and Good Dye Young ($18 at Sephora) also make stellar options.
But there’s something exciting about ColourPop finally getting into the hair game. What else could be coming down the pipeline?!
