This Mermaid like hair color should subtly shimmer with a full spectrum of beautiful colors. According to Pinterest’s top hair trend predictions for 2016 “fluid hair painting uses a similar painting technique to balayage.” But this hair coloring technique uses more than just lightening or one color. It uses a full spectrum of beautiful pastel shades. I’m not 100% convinced this isn’t just some stylists slight twist on coloring techniques that a bunch of other people do too, just to try to charge more for it. lol. Anyhow, it seems like they are leaning clients back in a chair so that your hair is laid out as if it was standing straight up and then doing the color hair painting. This way when your hair falls naturally the colored bits fall in a different, more natural, pattern than just the chunks they painted. A neat effect for sure and something to test further with other color schemes or maybe variations of gunmetal gray and silver tones.
This rose gold, copper, red color hair painting is a really great example of how it can look amazing without being overdone.
Like I said, it’s just a bit more refined of a technique for subtly coloring your hair. If your searching for more similar hair color inspiration you should also look at mermaid hair color, opal hair color, unicorn hair, soft-metallic hair colors and multi-color balayage in addition to hair painting. Wow, lots of options.
