Galaxy, Pixels, and Rainbows, Oh My!: Exploring the Newest Color Trends

2015 saw the emergence of some major hair trends and 2016 will undoubtedly bring more. Here are some of the ones that pinged on our radar. 

Galaxy (or Rainbow) Hair

The name and color schemes depicted in Galaxy Hair are inspired by nebulas and other outer space phenomena. Any color combination can be used though, as the technique consists of lots of highlights and balayage. This color style can be very sophisticated or super funky and fun, and with the variety of colors available means that it looks good on anyone!

Pixel Hair

Inspired by the pixelation of old school videogames, this hair color trend is not easy to achieve (think long hours at the salon) and extremely challenging to maintain. For editorials and print it gives an eye-catching look, but it's simply not practical for the typical client. It also looks best on straight hair, limiting options for many people. 

As someone who experiments with her haircolor frequently (and has naturally straight hair!) I love this trend and think it has a lot of potential. It's just not quite there yet.
