    This New Beauty Trend Uses Pieces Of Plexiglass To Color Hair

    Oh, and a knife too.

    There’s a new hair dyeing trend taking over salons, y’all: It’s called hand-pressed coloring.

    The colorist uses planes of plexiglass and a knife to transform uniform hair color into a ~multidimensional masterpiece~.

    Seriously, look at all the colors in there.

    Redken colorist Chiala Marvici invented the new coloring technique in her sleep.

    To achieve this look, she paints geometric patterns on 6-inch wide sheets of plexiglass in multiple shades of hair color.

    So. Cool.

    This method gives any hair shade tons of dimension.

    And, yes, all those crazy shapes get blended together once she presses the putty knife onto the hair.

    For example, when she mixed gold and blue to get this awesome effect.

    Salons all over the U.S. have started to give the trend a try. Everything from super bold shades...

    ...To soft pops of color.

    So, would you give hand-pressed hair color a try?
