A Galaxy Queen Halloween tutorial: your step-by-step guide

Before getting started on your Galaxy Queen hairstyle, make sure you’ve washed and dried your hair so you have a fresh canvas with no residue. You won’t need gloves because the gentle formula is free of ammonia and peroxide, so it’s safe on skin. It’s a good idea to protect your clothing from stains by putting a towel over your shoulders or wearing an old shirt.

1. Starting with your first tube of colour, L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary Hair Colour in #Lilac500, squeeze a small amount onto your fingers.

2.Take a small section of hair and apply the colour, rubbing it in from the mid-shaft to the ends. Some sections of colour can start closer to the root, while others can start lower.

3. Either apply all of your #Lilac500 streaks first and then move on to your other hues, or alternate as you go to ensure a good balance of colours. L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary Hair Colour in #HotPink300 and #Grey700 were used to create this look, but you can also choose different shades, or mix colours together for a totally personalized hairstyle. Apply streaks of colour to your entire mane—but especially the most visible top layer.

4. Set the colour by blow-drying your hair until it’s dry.

5. Lightly brush through your locks, and then curl your strands with a large-barrel curling iron. Spritz your style with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray to set it and fight the curl-ruining effects of humidity.

Your pastel-hair tutorial is complete! Now all you have to do is find the perfect crown. The circlet pictured features long, narrow crystals woven together with twine, but anything with a little glitz or a hint of pastel will offset the purple, blue and pink tones in your curls.
