Tie Dye Hair


It looks like we're not the only ones with peroxide on the brain (hopefully not actually on the brain, but you catch our drift)! i-D's Spring 2013 issue includes not one, not two, but three separate shoots with models sporting some seriously day-glo, tie-dye, freak-flag-flyin' hair. (Well, we expected it from Chloe Nørgaard, whose Angelo Pennetta-shot, and Christiaan-styled hair is no surprise—we snapped it backstage at Rodarte in February). Male model Sylvester Ulv Henriksen, shot by Nick Dorey, had his charmingly moppish skater-boy locks dyed a violet flecked, navy-mingled hunter green and indigo (by Tina Outen) that we kind of hope he kept post-shoot—there's something off-beat romantic about it... James Dean meets Manic Panic? (The story's caption reads, "Celebrate grunge and '90s skater cool; Watch Harmony Korine and Larry Clark's NYC coming-of-age story Kids, dye your  hair, bleach your jeans and hang around up to no good," which is an apt reference, if not just because the colors in the rest of the magazine look like the stylists spent their time watching Spring Breakers instead.) ITG-beloved Meghan Collison was captured by photographer Boo George rocking a flame-throwing mane (courtesy of ITG's other beloved, James Pecis, and his wig wizardry) that's only a few carrot-y hues darker than the shade Saskia De Brauw rocked for Love #9's "Boyish" shoot. Basically, all these neons have our hairspiration senses tingling, big-time.

But now we're calling in reinforcements: are you tempted to go Day-Glo or no?

    In all of these images the hair looks amazing! Love when it has a blue hue to it and an ombre type effect. The only issue is there is probably so much maintenance involved with this type of color. Love it anyway!

    That flaming orange red hair totally took my breath away. A wig, you say, huh? I think I'd be too chicken to do it to my actual hair, but I would love to sport that look for a while...

    The day-glo hair is so dead boring to me - it reminds me way too much of my druggie high school friends for me to ever find it attractive or interesting. The dark blue is kind of lovely though, and his name is amazing. Sylvester Ulv Henriksen sounds like a new age-y primary school teacher.

    As a college instructor, unfortunately this would be really hard to pull off and not get fired (I work at two fairly conservative schools). However, I have toyed around with the idea of a hot pink streak of hair on the underside...just a little subversive...but could totally be covered up for a job interview. I did fire-engine red highlights in college and LOVED them...but alas, in the teaching world, that kind of thing doesn't get you called back for a second interview. :-/

    Now...off to go daydream of multi-colored hair!

    Really love this look! So fun and colourful. Wan't allowed to dye my hair when I was younger (sensible parents ;)), can't dye it now because I work in a professional setting... But I promise to have the most amazing tie-dye hair when I'm 60 ;)

    My hair is already several shades of purple/blue/green, mixture of ombre and tie dye but most of my hair. I love it.

    I was rocking the tie dye hair ten years ago and all I got was a "Biggest Freak" award at my highschool :( won an actual trophy and everything.
