The galaxy hair trend started several years ago and it’s not going away anytime soon! What better way to express yourself and your connection to the universe by crowning your head with these amazing colors of the cosmos?!
What is galaxy hair?
Galaxy hair is achieved by coloring your hair with the various blue, red, pink and purple colors we see in distant galaxies. As you can see from space photos, there many shades of blue, red, pink, and purple to choose from. Even though the photos we see are digitally colored, they are what we’d truly see with our naked eyes if we got close enough. These various shades come from the light band we see, which is often based upon the age of the star and can often be distorted by space dust.
Below, I’ve put together a collection of photos from world-renowned hair colorists who’ve created some incredible galaxy hair colors. Note that these are fashion colors, so they can fade quickly without the right care, such as washing your hair with special color shampoo, using cold water and washing as little as possible. Also be sure to prepare yourself for a full day at the salon. It can often take 3-5 hours to get this galaxy color, so plan accordingly!
