“If I have only one life … let me live it blonde,” said an advertisement in 1958 by Clairol, the manufacturer of the most popular American hair dye.

Beauty Trend: Colored Hair
First, let’s figure out what painting techniques are at the peak of their popularity and how they look.
Pastel And Neon Shades
The most popular type of staining. When the hair is first lightened, and then dyed in shades of caramel and crayons or neon signs in Times Square. Options with several shades of the same color look especially advantageous. In this case, the coloring turns out to be voluminous and very natural, if I may say so.
In this version of dyeing, hair is tinted in several colors at once. It can be shades of one or, conversely, diametrically opposite colors. The main feature is to make the strands clearly visible and the differences in colors are visible.
Such a technique is doubtful by many about its attractiveness, but there is still something to it. The task of the colorist is to dye his hair in such a way as to create the effect as if it were dipped in a can of paint, that is, the transition from a bright shade to your natural can be done practically according to the line, that is, no smooth transitions are required.
The New York colorist Aura Friedman came up with this staining technique (it will be described separately below). It consists of the sequential application of dark blue and dark green shades to dark hair. The effect is impressive: in the light, the hair shimmers, and it’s true, like gasoline on wet pavement.
Another Aura Friedman invention inspired by opal stone. In this staining technique, several shades are used, namely pearl, clove, salmon, and blue. Sometimes a little green tone is added to make contrasts even more noticeable and mouth-watering.
Obviously, why this coloring got its name. When shades of green, light green, blue, blue, black, and white are spread on the hair, all this magnificence looks, let’s say directly bewitching. Especially when moving and in complex captures, when you can see how the hair differs from each other.
Who is painting in the Rainbow
Aura Friedman is the queen of New York, the lady of multi-colored hair, and, as they say, it is the one who brought into fashion all these incredible colors. Among her clients are Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as all those who are tired of mournful dull hair.
