Just when you thought you couldn't find something cooler for your wedding than a geode wedding cake. Get ready: Geode Hair is about to become the biggest thing in hair color. This rainbow ombré trend is picking up steam in the world of styling and only continues to get bigger—just the thing to break us out of our winter beauty rut and brighten up our Instagram feeds. And who do we have to thank for this colorful pick-me-up? The owner of the Ramirez|Tran salon in Los Angeles, Cherin Choi.
Shout-out to Refinery29 for discovering this gorgeous take on statement rainbow hair that is just enough color to turn heads (quite literally!) but not enough to look like My Little Pony. (Though we do love a unicorn-inspired style from time to time.)
With varying shades of purple and blue, the color starts from the ends, upward, finishing with a darker and more natural color at the roots. Choi spoke to the publication about the process, which she claims is actually quite easy to style. And what could be better than a look everyone thinks took forever but is actually fairly simple to replicate? Choi explains: “The lightened hair is lifted to a pale yellow, then is toned to a blondish white using Redken Shades 9v/clear to eliminate yellow. The hair is completely dried, then the amethyst purple is applied on the mid sections, then the moonstone blue onto the very tips.”
Choi also let us in on her finishing-touch secret: I use a brush and emulsify with my hands to blend the colors.” Users, take note! See some of our favorite representations of the hairstyle that’s taking off, below:
If you’re not able to go to Choi to master the geode hairstyle, bring the above to your local stylist and get in on the fun new hair trend to hit this season. Why not put a little spring in your spring?
