If you’re yet to hear of the internet’s latest hair craze, prepare yourselves.
Fluid hair painting, created by KL Christoffersen, is a method of hair colouring that is proving to be the start of a rapidly growing trend all over the internet, particularly on Instagram, having already developed its own hashtag #fluidhairpainting
Fluid hair painting is very similar to balayage and dip dye, however, it is applied in a way which supposedly provides more control for the stylist, allowing them to achieve a more bespoke style for clients.
The technique is performed by laying the client’s hair flat on a table, fanning it out into sections and hand painting the dye onto the hair with a brush. Having the hair positioned flat on a surface rather than hanging loose allows the stylist to selectively decide where to apply the dye, and gives them far more control when trying to achieve a gradient look, making the outcome slightly more predictable.
KL Christoffersen named the technique ‘Fluid Hair Colouring’ to reflect the visual effect of the outcome. She said “because the hair is over directed during the application process, it collapses into a fluid color gradient when styled”. This new method of hair colouring allows the stylist to vary colours as much as they wish, Christoffersen said “the final results are endless – from mimicking sun-kissed baby highlights to creating a multi-colored rainbow explosion…” she is completely aware of how adaptable and versatile this new method really is. The trend has been seen catching on all over the world from Sweden to Canada and is still growing, could this be the new go-to look for hair enthusiasts?
