Superhero聽hair, mermaid hair, colombr茅, reverse ombr茅, whatever Kylie Jenner鈥檚 latest 鈥榙o of the week is. Seems like you can鈥檛 turn around these days without running into a new hair trend. Why? Because people love changing up their hair (change your hair, change your life, amirite?) The hottest new trend in coif dyeing is being pioneered by NYC hair colorist Chiala Marvici and it鈥檚 called hand-pressed coloring 鈥 or glass hair coloring. Not only does it cut the amount of time you need to sit in a stylists chair IN HALF, but when you see the results, you鈥檙e going to want to book an appointment at the salon ASAP.

The technique involves a sheet of plexiglass and a flat putty knife. The hair dyes are painted directly onto the glass in whatever design you鈥檇 like 鈥 Chiala uses stripes, swirls and big polka dots. Then, place the hair on the glass, and similar to screen printing, you press the paint into the hair in a few broad strokes. Once dye is distributed throughout all the strands, the hair sits for processing. Then, the dye is washed out.

Look. Just look. The end result is seamless, multi-dimensional and blended color. So, so gorgeous. Chiala tells Cosmopolitan that the technique came to her in a dream. Inspired by a painting done for her by a friend, she fell asleep one night and 鈥渄reamt of all these layers of paint living together on one surface.鈥 And voil脿! Hand-pressing was born. Currently, she鈥檚 traveling the country teaching this method of hair coloring, so this mode of coloring maybe coming to you very soon.

And since the dye is painted onto the glass first, it gives the colorist lots of control to create stunning new blends of color. RAINBOW HAIR!
