Hair Trend Report: Tie Dye Style

Lionesse Hair Trend Report: Tie Dye Hair

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!

Ladies with Thin Hair
Those with thin hair can benefit from the wavy, textured look this spring. Using dry shampoo or a texturizing pomade can add plenty of volume where there previously was none, giving the hair a tousled, messy, fuller look. Blow drying the hair upside down whilst using a dry shampoo can add extra volume to the hair. Beach waves are easy to achieve with some sea salt spray and dry shampoo, and won’t require a lot of time. Simply spritz damp hair with sea salt spray, scrunch, and blow dry upside down.

Those with thin hair can also benefit from a shorter bob, which would look fantastic when using dry shampoo to add volume and texture. Add some bangs to change up the look to the face and add some depth from the frontal point, and possibly some highlights to accent the bangs area.

Ladies with Thick Hair
Ladies with thick hair can benefit from a shoulder length cut this season, and although you may not need to add any volume, dry shampoo can help you get the textured look you’re after. Beach waves work well for shoulder length hair, and can be attained through use of sea salt spray and a blow dryer. Those with thick hair should avoid drying the hair all the way to avoid frizz. Simply spritz the hair with the sea salt spray throughout, flip upside down and scrunch, and take a blow dryer to the hair for a few minutes to sculpt a messy, wavy look. You can also put your wavy locks into a low pony tail, messing it up a bit to give it the ‘in’ look for the season.

Bangs can look especially fantastic on ladies with thick hair as it adds a lot of volume and dimension to the overall look of the hair. Opt for longer bangs to set your style off.
