How to do Galaxy Hair
Galaxy hair has been a popular trend since 2015. The colours are inspired by the celestial sphere. Galaxy hair (or space hair) doesn’t use a specific colouring technique. It’s more about free hand colour melting shades that mimic swirling nebulas from the deep reaches of outer space. The perfect look for the Space Cadet! While you can really use a wide range of colours, blues and purples often dominate in the galaxy hair design. However, it’s the blending and swirling that really matter, and in this design I added extra bright alien green flashes!
For this video I teamed up with lead singer from Static Alice, Dom. Dom was a great sport and gave me free reign with her hair. However we did have to work with some old stained in colour, and use shades that would withstand daily shampooing. Dom has an amazing voice, that you will hear in the video as we used her song “Sweet Nothings”. Dom also wanted this colour to stand out for Static Alice’s live performance at The Gathering music festival. The challenge was that the stage lighting would be quite dark, so I incorporated UV reactive dyes that would give a slight glow like the night sky under the UV stage lights! Check out the video…
PINK: Equal parts Special Effects Atomic pink (UV reactive) and silicone free conditioner Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10 in 1.
BLUE: Special Effects Blue Velvet
PURPLE: Brite Organix Purple
LIME ALIEN GREEN: Manic Panic Electric Banana (UV reactive) with a dash of Joico Vero K-Pak Intensity Yellow. (This yellow mix was applied by blending it out from the dark green to turn it into lime)
DARK GREEN: Sparks Green Envy
