Rest in peace, ombre hair color. It seems that finally, girls are realizing that it merely looks like you haven’t touched up your roots in four years and are kicking this trend to the curb. Unfortunately, there’s a new, even less appealing hair fad hitting the streets: splashlights.
An NYC-based colorist (ugh why does it have to be my city?) is trying to popularize a band of blond on an otherwise brunette head, thus creating (supposedly) a “halo effect”:
Um, that doesn’t look like a halo. It looks like someone brought in a picture of a skunk to the salon and demanded a similar look. Not that I’m all about dressing to please guys, but there isn’t one man on planet Earth who would prefer this bizarre stripe to a more natural highlight or color scheme.
Any way you slice it, this look is a definite DON’T, darlings. If you’re keen on color blocking, stick to bags and shift dresses–not your hair. But, inevitably, one wayward celeb will try this. Kesha? Xtina? Demi? Is there a star who could actually pull this look off?
