Gaga over geode
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?
