She’s A Rainbow

Summer has officially begun and for Brian & I, it all started with Bonnaroo. Now we’re out on #tour5 doin’ looks for the Paramore shows (more on that soon)… but we figured we’d send over some Pride inspo.

*A little backstory on our history together. Brian’s first work trip with Paramore was for the “crushcrushcrush” shoot. Even though he created the hairstyle/color for “Misery Business,” he and I never worked a real shoot together until after. At this point, it’s been over a decade and the work just feels like art now for both of us. We’ll keep you in the loop via Strands & our IG stories so you can see us at work behind the scenes on the current Paramore tour.* This Bonnaroo look was one of my favorites. I love when Brian just creates on a whim and uses my face as a canvas (see: the Melbourne look for tour 3). Per Brian’s orders, a look like this is NOT about being precise. Though blending is key to make the colors melt into each other. Basically, it’s all color theory/ROY G. BIV stuff.

Blend to your hearts content, honies. But never blend in.

Ps – a huge shout out to Morphe for sending Brian that MASSIVE color shadow palette.

    I always wondered who styled the earlier hair for you Hayley and wow that it was Brian! so awesome that you’ve been creating hair art together for so long 🙂 I’ve convinced myself that just because I’m 31 and have two small babies doesn’t mean I can’t have rad hair! Can’t wait to #tryadye

    I love this look! And I’m glad y’all posted this, Thank You! I want to try to recreate the look 🙂
    I have always thought all colors are beautiful, I love to see & it’s amazing how makeup, hair dyes, paint, brings to life anything. Art is everywhere & it’s beautiful. And using any of these stuff on myself makes me feel like art & it makes me feel happy ✨
