Are You a Colorful Streaker?

Get your minds out of the gutter, I'm talking about on your heads! There's more to hair hues than those that occur in nature — like pretty pink and purple — and it doesn't have to mean bleach and an entire change of color.

If you're not quite ready to dive in whole headfirst, take it just a little way with Streekers ($11), eight temporary shades that won't flake away onto your top either. Whether you sport this style already or did in the past, share the location for your pop of color in the comments below.

Actually, it's not like it never was my 'thing' to not color streak--it's more like I want to color streak, but I just don't know if the streak will turn out right with my auburn hair. So I haven't taken the chance yet.

No...they look cute on some people, but it's not really "me".

No, but I have considered it. It's just not professional enough for me to sport full time, but I'm thinking of buying the temporary ones.

I'm not into having just one part of my hair coloured, I'm more into a global colour. The 3 past years I did dark red and dark purple and that was really nice =) I'm i'm still quite young though lol

When I started college, I got crayon red chunks all through my bob--and it looked fab! I think Rachel's hair sort of looks like a hot mess up there--roots, faded pink chunks over too-yellow hair. If you do a streak, bleach the hair to white EVEN IF you want a soft color. And roots are going to look kinda gross.

I have never had any colored streaks or such; however I have always wanted to have my stylist weave a few thin streaks of a purple-plum tone into my hair. I would be up for that. Done in a chic way like McAdams or Julia Roberts. I think it would be fun in a non over-the-top way.

When I used to work at the Hard Rock Cafe I had tried a few different colors. It was fun, but I don't think I would do anything other than some highlights or red streaks right now.

I've done it a couple of times, but having color streaks done professionally is expensive. Plus, on women past a certain age it just looks wrong to me. Even in the picture of Rachel McAdams it looks out of place, and she is two years older than I am. She looks way better as a brunette.

I have always liked a few funky streaks but never really got around to it myself. I did however see way too many examples of horrible streaks. That didn't help obviously.

Haven't been able to, since I've entered client-world, but back in college (and my art-school days), I tried just about every color under the sun. My two favorites were bleaching the bottom 2" of my hair and then dyeing those pink... then I was able to chop them off before I went home for the holidays without anyone knowing. We also bleached a strip in the back and dyed it turquoise blue, so when I pulled my hair up into a ponytail, you could see the fun color.

I used to rock a big chunk of hot pink in the front of my hair back in the day. I miss it sometimes.

I had red (as in fire engine red, not redhead) highlights once when I was like 14. They faded and looked like a natural coppery reddish highlight after a couple weeks.

I had pink streaks a couple of years ago. I'm thinking turquoise now!

I did blue when my hair was blonde in middle school, and red when I dyed it black a few years ago. I'm in the mood to do something fun with my hair now, but I can't decide. :P

my favorite was my midnight blue accents when i had blue based chocolate brown hair. the fade out on those shades is a MAJOR b-otch though. i can't wait to have honey blonde with chocolate and pink low lights.

Sorry, it just looks like your hair accidentally dipped into the strawberry sauce, and you need to eat w/better manners!
