We’ve all seen those die-hard fans, covered from the waist up in team-colored body paint. We’ve rounded up some creative and clever ideas for hair, face paint and more to showcase your team spirit.
A torso covered in team-colored paint and nothing else may not be a woman’s idea of how to express her hardcore fandom (unless, of course, you want to get arrested). You’re still a fan ’til you die on the inside! If you’re completely stoked for March Madness, here are some fun yet fashionable ways to show off your team spirit.
Dress your tresses
Go all out and turn your hair Gator green or Tar Heel blue. Manic Panic Dyehard Temporary Hair Colors look anything but natural, but they are perfect for your March Madness ‘do. You can streak your hair, go for an ombre effect or color from root to tip. Once the frenzy is over, they wash right out.
You can also weave some ribbon into a braid or tie up a ponytail. College team ribbon from J and O Fabrics comes stamped with the logo of several of your favorite teams.
Temporary tattoos are another option for your March Madness look. Party City team tattoos can be applied to the face or other body parts. They have tattoos for Miami, UK, Michigan, LSU and most of the big schools.
Pimp your digits
Team nail art can be as simple as wearing some of your brightest polish. There are lots of ways to design your nails with nail art paint, but you can take the guesswork out of it with nail decals. RLR Creations Nail Art on Etsy has decals for all NCAA Division 1 schools.
If you really want to get creative, body paint screams “ultimate fan” like nothing else can. Ben Nye is a makeup brand that specializes in theatrical and stage makeup. The brand’s face paints come in a wide range of colors.
