Here are a few helpful color run tips for making the most of your experience ... whichever one that may be!
Don’t inhale – The dye used during color runs is often in powder form, so best not to inhale when running through a cloud of color.
Leave the Lululemon (and your shiny new kicks) at home – While the dye generally washes out, there’s no guarantee.
Bring a buddy – Like most things, color runs are more fun with friends, so get a team going.
Cover your goldie locks – Consider wearing a hat if you’re blonde (and tying your hair back if it’s long) to avoid dying your hair an unintended shade.
Don’t forget to bring a towel (and a change of clothes) – You’ll want to change outta those freshly dyed clothes before getting into your car, or going anywhere for that matter … and don’t forget your shoes!
Capture the moment – Whether by phone, GoPro, disposable camera, or 35mm, document your day!
Smile!! -- You’re designed to, plus it makes for better pictures!
