Temporary Hair Dye, Set of 3: Black, Dark Brown and Coffee, by Possiave

As a Professional Photographer I have to be alert and prepare for anything that might go wrong during a photo session. Some clients are under the impression that Photoshop is magic, and that it applies itself without my time, and expertise. The most common phrase during a shoot or after one is, “You can fix that with Photoshop...” The answer is yes I can; But do I want to? No, the payment of a a regular session does not cover even five minutes of Photoshop. The common issue, gray hairs that no one can notice but the person itself. With this set of temporary hair color pens as soon as I spot a gray hair, I politely ask my client if they are okay with it or want to cover it. If they are not okay with it, I handle them a mirror and the pen that matches their hair color. I let them create their own “Photoshop” in real time. This set has three different colors: black, coffee and dark brown.

These pens are not hair chalk, I have hair chalk and their consistency is of that, chalk. These pens have a different consistency, almost like a very thick eye liner. It works on dry hair. Its application is very easy; Just run the pen down the hair that needs the color, from the top to the bottom. If hair spray is added after wards it will last a bit longer because it kind of seals the color, the same happens when heat is apply to the colored hair. I like that I can place it in my bag of props and go, as it is just like an additional piece of make up. It is important to mention that this is a momentary fix that won’t last a long time. I have done it to my hair, and had it last about four hours or so as it rubs off. Overall, these color pens work as expected. It provides a good cover up that saves me many hours of editing and enhancing.

As you see its like a eyeliner/lipstick creamy thick consistency, not a chalk.
