You might be asking yourself, “what is gemini hair?” and “how is it different from a split dye?” Spoiler alert: it’s not! Gemini Hair is the rebrand of split dyes for the Gen-Z era, and we are loving the color combinations we are seeing on our feeds. But we all know who started the trend right? Hint hint…she’s a cofounder of this company. Okay so maybe she didn’t start the trend, but she started something!
What is Gemini Hair?
Gemini Hair or Split Dyes have been popular among the subculture E-Girls & E-Boys, which was heavily influenced by Japanese Street Fashion, emo, scene, and mall goth fashion. Popularized by everyone’s favorite app, Tiktok, the style came to be in the early 2010s.
On April 8, 2013, Paramore released their music video for “Still Into You”. The premiere of the video also served as a reveal of Hayley’s new hair: a pink and orange split dye. Even now, 9 years later, we still get questions about recreating this iconic look, so we thought we’d give it to you!
“At first, I didn’t want to do this look” Brian said when we asked him about the inspiration behind this iconic look. “This was all Hayley’s idea.” Turns out, now it’s one of his all time favorite looks, and he loves seeing the fans recreate it with GDY.
