Switching up your hair color when your beauty get-up is feeling, well, a little stale, can be pretty daunting. Fortunately, there are several of low-commitment ways to re-invent yourself without breaking the bank or suffering long-term regret. While a drastic haircut may be low-key semi-irreversible, changing your hair color is a great way to get a fresh look without having to suffer for months upon months in case you’re not super stoked with the outcome. Temporary and semi-permanent hair colors offer all of you fellow beauty commitment-phobes out there the perfect way to play around with your alternate ago (…or at least with your hair’s hue) without being doomed to a pricey color correction a week or two after the deed has been done.

You see, temporary hair colors only last ten to twelve shampoos, giving you a few weeks of a new look without having to suffer the expensive consequences of getting fixed by your colorist at the salon. I mean, they’re kind of the most genius way to reinvent your look with the lofty investment, no? Ready to dabble in some non-committal fun? Ahead, we’ve lined up a few of our favorite low-maintenance hair colors to test out the waters without the buyer’s remorse.
