Laduree Pastel Hair Colours (wash out).
I first caught glimse of this in Marie Claire. They have a how to DIY video on their site using Kevin Murphy Colour Bugs:
http://www.kevinmurphy.com.au/podcasts/ourpodcasts.php?id=194
but it didnt look like the model’s hair in their shoot was created from this product which only comes in 3 colours - pink, purple & orange. Colour Bugs are described as a chalk product which when worked onto a spray on hair styling product (to wet the hair & allow the product to stick) creates streaks of colour even on dark hair.
HOWEVER, the products have that pretty packaged price tag & more importantly are very limiting on colour……
That’s where art oil pastels come in…..
It’s called HAIR CHALKING & here are several helpful blogs with how to’s & links to videos:

Seemingly Rembrandt chalks are the best (avaliable from Amazon .com & .co.uk) worked onto water sprayed hair & then curled or straightened.
What tips did I pick up…..
Wear gloves
Put a towel around your shoulders or wear an old T-shirt
Allow time!
Be prepared to wipe the oil off your stylers, so have a spare towel handy. 
Dry shampoo worked over the colours will mute them.
Brushing the hair through with lighten the effect.
Curling the hair with intensify the way the colour looks.
Spray hair spray on the finished look to help keep the colour.

I LOVE THIS IDEA FOR SHOOTS OR TO DO ONCE IN A BLUE MOON TO GO OUT <3
