Are The Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Dyes Vegan? No Unicorns Were Harmed In The Production Process

Forget indulging your inner unicorn. Your outer unicorn can now be fully displayed via your follicles. Lime Crime's Unicorn Hair dye collection boasts 13 semi-permanent shades as magical as the mythical, single-horned creature that inspired the range! The shades span the spectrum, from pink to blue to green to orange and they can be mixed for a custom concoction.

Unicorn Hair costs $16 a jar and comes in two formulas. There's Full Coverage, which is super saturated and pigmented, and there's Tint, which is more sheer. Both formulas are ripe for blondes, while the Full Coverage shades work best for dark-haired lovelies.
