Hairbrained: A Colorful Year


It was a colorful year to say the least! In 2015 we saw the mainstream acceptance of creative color; in fact, our five most liked Instagram posts were color-related. Without a doubt, Instagram played a huge part in spreading and commercializing the “crazy color” trend.

Proud hairdressers from all over the world posted vivid tones and hues every day and in every scroll, making what was previously unacceptable a normal part of everyday style.

And, yes, you could even have vibrant hair colors and still go to work!

As a community, if we push ourselves the way we have with color, we will surely reap the rewards.
