Oil Slick Hair Has a New Definition
What is a dark haired girl to do when she fanaticizes over bright or multi-colored hair?
Usually, the thought is exactly that, just a thought. Who wants to go through hours of bleaching just to kill half their length before getting to the fun part?
Dark hair deserves a trend of its own; the oil slick is versatile but not as crazy as having pink and yellow hair while working as a waitress.
How do you get crazy with colour without removing my natural tone?
This hairstyle creates the rainbow found in oil slicks by using cooler colours such as blues, greens, purples and copper tones. Don’t think for two seconds this is a limited colour palette! Every colour has a range of shades and tones, so brown hair has a chance to blend in amongst the craze.
Starting at the roots and starting with the darker colours, the dye is generously alternated between parts and streaks by freehand to exhibit the contrast.
Assistants and Administration can also get Artistic!
After the initial waiting time and thoughts of “what ifs”, the result? Hair that is iridescent and lightly eye catching. Only noticeable in well-lit settings this hair colour is ideal for the business woman.
Unlike how distinctly colours show on blonde/bleached hair, there are still ways around the oil slick coloring that can be easily hidden in brown hair. Though some techniques may include small amounts of bleaching or toning.
Jaye Harkness –http://jesrever.tumblr.com/– Oil Slick Hair
Jaye Harkness, a Singaporean blogger, took on this style in a way that can only be seen when the top half of her hair is tied up. Jaye initially looks like she has a plain black bob upon first glance, but when she runs her fingers through in a video that went viral early last year, you can see the vibrancy of the rainbow she conceals underneath.
Its 2017, brown hair doesn’t have to be bland or thought of as boring.
Not everyone is brave enough to be bold, but are you daring enough to colour the dark side?
