Unicorns and Holograms may mark 2017 as the trippiest year to date! Holographic nails, holographic makeup, and even holo clothing and accessories.
Ross Michaels Hair Salon is full of cutting edge hairstylists and they are the daring geniuses who brought holographic highlights to the beauty world. By mixing blonde hair color with with pastel lavender, baby pink and bright blue they were able to create the desirable metallic holo effect.
According to an interview with Redken colorist Chiala Marvici with Modern Salon, the holographic trend is created with a technique called hand-pressed coloring. Hand-pressed coloring uses the methods behind screen printing and brings them to your locks. The stylist paints different patterns on a sheet of Plexiglas with dye and then places a section of hair onto the glass, transferring the dye to your strands.
The stylist repeats the process using pastel hues of pink, blue, and lavender on different sections of hair or repeatedly on the same section to vary the intensity of the color. The technique is faster than other color applications like foil and balayage and allows the stylist to have greater control over the vibrancy of the look. So far, Marvici has only taught a few of stylists the technique, but we're confident it will take off fast.
