Checkerboard Color Is the Edgy New Trend in Rainbow Hair
Bleach London is no stranger to unicorn-colored manes — after all, it's the same hair hot spot credited with crafting rainbow roots. The UK salon has just unveiled its newest coif creation: checkerboard hair.
The style consists of dye laid out in a series of squares (like a checkerboard) on the wearer's strands from root to tip to create an incredibly bold, eye-catching look. But even though it is a daring 'do, it doesn't require as much commitment as you might think. Salon cofounder Alex Brownsell actually used Bleach London's temporary hair color crayons to draw on the design. The checkerboard will wash out after a few shampoos, making it a fun style to test at a music festival along with rainbow freckles.
We may not be ready to take on checkerboard hair ourselves, but we're excited about what this new trend means for the future of rainbow hair: patterns! Polka dot, paisley, and leopard spots could only be a short wait away. Read on to see this new design in action.
