Imagine being able to sense feeling and alter it. Mantis, a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, was about to be the hero who manipulated Thanos into a quick sleep, until Star-Lord spoilt it. We love how her simple blue streaks spice up her face-framing bob cut!
This look is super simple to do, especially if you have straight hair. You can purchase blue hair makeup from Curlfit's array of non-damaging temporary hair makeup and use a pea-size amount to create streaks down sections of your hair.
