Catch that rainbow and capture it in your hair. Ladies, get ready to have the mane of your dreams, ‘colour misting’ is taking over colour melting now!
The genius colour specialist behind this technique is Stephanie Lawrence from Londonderry, NH. She has been exploring the colours so much so that her Instagram feed is filled with shades to keep you motivated all year long.
Colour misting is inspired by airbrushing which is usually done for nails or clothes. As per an article by Popsugar, Stephanie wanted to mimic the style for hair and she started working on the formula. To create the colour mist she dilutes Pulp Riot colour in water and then it is sprayed randomly on a portion of the hair. After that, she mists another colour over a part of it and onto other pieces and the process continues until the all your hair is covered. She uses mesh stripes and paper foils to hold the colour in place so it continues to saturate without drying out.
To replicate the technique it’s recommended that you use a colour with a lotion base like Crazy Color Semi Permanent Hair Color Cream – Peachy Coral No.70 100ml (Rs 650) because it makes the mixing with water easier and eliminates the chunky consistency. However, Stephanie has noticed that diluting the dye, reduces its longevity so if you are going ahead with a light hair colour, don’t expect it to last too long.
The final result looks like tie-dye for hair or blended shades reflecting a rainbow. Scroll through to get inspired and maybe get a unicorn mane for the season!
