Liquid Hair Colors

Ben Nye pioneered natural appearing hair colors vital to completing a performer's total look. Unlike sprays which can be stiff once dry, liquid colors can easily be managed after application. Hair Colors contain a setting agent to keep them from flaking. Avoid use on chemically treated hair. Test before use.

Applications: 3-10 per ounce.
