Your little Katy Perry is begging for pink streaks or blue tips to complete her pop star Halloween look this year, but you’re worried about whether or not it’s safe to dye her hair at all. The good news? There are plenty of temporary options you can try that won’t damage your child’s strands and will be all the rage at their school’s costume contest.

The next level up would be a semi-permanent dye, which will last anywhere between four to eight weeks before gradually fading."
