Watercolor Hair Is the Newest Way to Turn Your Hair Into a Work of Art
We know what you’re thinking: Haven’t we reached max capacity on crazy hair color trends yet!? Sorry, but it seems that’s not quite the case. Last week we brought you the stunning, natural-inspired shade cinnamon swirl hair, but this week we’re go in a very different direction. Introducing: watercolor hair.
Just like the fundamental art supply, this new hair color technique is characterized by taking those vivid rainbow colors and diluting them down to something a little bit softer. Think opal hair with a few more shades incorporated throughout. If you’re into the idea of rainbow roots but don’t necessarily want to be walking around with something like florescent orange locks, this could be the perfect happy medium.
From what we’ve seen on Instagram and from the experts over at Pravana, the looks tends to integrate color into your rainbow locks rather than take it over completely. Whether the color is most vivid at the roots or your ends is up to you.
Considering how fast rainbow-hued dyes tend to fade, we will admit we’re a little bit wary of how long this would actually last. But hey, all great loves are fleeting, right?

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
