I’m not one to like to dye my hair, I think I must have done it once when I was in High School because I wanted my hair to look silky black just like my best friend, but it turned out to be more like Jet black, witchy looking than anything else, and I’ve not done anything exotic to my hair since. I think my dark brown hair suits me just fine. Also I’m glad that I don’t have gray that I have to cover, I know one of my co-workers that is the same age as me has premature gray and spends quite a bit of money on a regular basis coloring her hair.
If you’re one to follow fashion trend, of course hair color can change your overall appearance, whether it’s the youthful or exotic look that you’re going after, hair coloring can definitely deliver that for you. According to the Thai fashion magazine, it appears that the hair fashion trend for 2008 going on to 2009 is going to be a blast from the past, a return of the 70s and 80s, just like the classic hit song by Judy Garland, Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
As for those that love exotic color, you’re in for a treat; the color use is primary colors, bold color of red, purple, green, yellow, blue, and pink in the style of short layers, just like the 70s and 80s. If you are going to try this yourself, it would be best to dye your hair to a lighter shade first, such as golden color, and then add the rainbow colors in afterward. These colors will not stay very long; therefore, have to be retouched every 2-3 weeks, especially if you wash your hair very often, then it would fade a lot faster.
According to the Thai Magazine, the rainbow hair colors is very noticeable, trendy, and it’s definitely the hair trend of 2008. I’m not one to follow trends, and I think this is definitely a fad, but for those that are trend setters, this is definitely for you. I live in a small town and I’ve not seen anyone with this rainbow hair color yet, but from looking at the photos, it does bring back memories of the 80s…Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, Greenich Village, Ah, those were the good old days, I do miss New York City.
