With all trends in fashion, what goes around, always comes back around! The same goes for most hairstyles and when you combine fashion AND hair, you end up with this hot new fad that may not be the longest in history but is definitely the brightest! The next big thing in amazing hair effects has been showing up in all the hot spots. The once-trademark symbol of the Woodstock generation featuring multicolored clothing and fabrics that appeared first among the first hippies has been successfully expanded to include hair and nails. While the dominant “thread” of continued appreciation for the effects by which Tie dying is characteristically defined has been primarily restricted to tees, hair designers have found a way to carry the ambience of the tie dye effect over to a establish a new form of hair coloring. And judging from the looks of things to come, the instant appeal of tie-dyed hair effects seems to have opened the windows widely to expose a new range of many more possibilities for hair color design that will surely follow.
It’s All About the Colors
With hair as the canvas, the form of art that at one time was the product of spin art and customary tying off and dipping tees in various colors makes the grade among fashionistas, everywhere. The conventional tie dye colors of red, orange, yellow, turquoise and purple are being challenged by new and fun color combos that rock any look and identify the real artists among us. Being that this trend involves laying down of color, the best “canvas” to begin with (following the time-honored method of tie dying tees,) the best way to get the most true color requires light colored hair, with the ultimate foundation being hair that is bleached, Knowing that not everyone wanting tie dye effects will be OK with such a drastic preliminary step, there are ways to get enhanced color by using temporary methods like pressing eyeshadow pigments onto the areas of hair strands that would traditionally be dipped in a tie-dying process. One thing to remember as with all coloring – no matter what your hair color or type, condition and moisturize before and after dying hair to keep it in tip-top shape.
Why the Tie Dye Surge
Today’s technology gives us an advanced appreciation for colors, due to color enhancements seen everywhere. There’s a certain digital attractiveness we attain, in a high-def manner, whereby we can become the art of our Instagram pictures. As hair is one of the first aspects that others notice about us, it’s a form of personal power to know that we can affect the image we portray. Hair color, unlike most other feature-altering measures, is relatively easy to change, and also easy to change back. And in a world where it continues to become more challenging to create a unique appearance within the sea of humanity, tie dye becomes an all the more attractive choice among the zillions of brown shades in the world. And now, society no longer judges people by the strict standards of our forefathers. Go for it!
