You’ve heard of Highlights, Lowlights, even Ombre by now. But what are Splashlights?
Designed to look like a beam of light across your head, Splashlights are looking to be the next effect for 2014 hair trends. Who needs Instagram filters when you can create your own ray of light with your haircolor.
“I wanted to create the effect that a laser beam is hitting your hair at a certain spot,” Aura Friedman (inventor of Splashlighting) tells Allure Magazine. “It’s an effect that involves painting bleach onto a small horizontal section of hair, starting with the undermost layers, then covering all the hair above and below the stripe with a color close to your natural shade.”
Will this ‘effect’ catch on?
Who knows, it’s an inventive and slightly futuristic approach, but what’s the message?
