HAIR BUZ­ZWORD

Gaga over geode

Hair - - The Style Guide -

When it comes to hair art, in­spi­ra­tion comes from ev­ery imag­in­able source. And since shiny ob­jects grab our at­ten­tion the quick­est, we’re now fix­at­ing on gem­stone-in­spired hair colour. Yes, you heard us right—gem­stones and all things sparkly are our weak spots and thank­fully, hairstylists have worked hard to trans­late this into a de­li­cious hair colour trend. The style is cre­ated us­ing a blend of rich tones that move from a dark to light gra­da­tion. While the roots are typ­i­cally left nat­u­ral, the mid-lengths and ends are a vi­sion painted in pur­ple, blue, grey and even green. Truth be told, this looks like a vari­a­tion of the rain­bow trend that’s been do­ing the rounds lately, but with a more ex­quis­ite, iri­des­cent and strik­ing touch to it. The colours are blended free­hand us­ing a brush or even fin­gers, and the colour is then ap­plied ei­ther all over the hair or in sec­tions. While the rain­bow hair trend re­quires bleached sec­tions to bring out the vi­brancy of the colours, this trend doesn’t de­mand that. The hair is only light­ened and not stripped of colour to mimic the ap­pear­ance of a geode slice. The shades are blended com­pletely based on the judge­ment of the colourist, so need­less to say, trust your­self in the hands of an ex­pe­ri­enced one. As men­tioned ear­lier, some stylists pre­fer to leave the roots nat­u­ral as this means less fre­quent touch-ups. Gem­stone-in­spired beauty trends aren’t ex­actly new—we re­cently saw an abun­dance of gem­stone-in­spired man­i­cures and even lip art styles. These were com­plete with not just colour blends but also crys­tal em­bel­lish­ments to bring the look to­gether. It’s no won­der then it made its way to hair as well. The geode hair trend is ideal for the sea­son as it adds the right amount of vi­brancy to your locks that the sunny days de­mand. The iri­des­cence of the crys­tals is brought alive through your en­tire mane, or even through a sin­gle sec­tion in the hair. The choice is yours—how will you be wear­ing this fun trend?

Since shiny ob­jects grab our at­ten­tion the fastest, this time around we’re fix­at­ing on gem­stone in­spired hair colour
