Just when you think that hair fashion couldn't get any crazier, a salon in Madrid developed an eye-catching new technique of dyeing hair they're calling "pixelated hair." This style sees patches of hair bleached and colored in square sections, like pixels on a computer screen. This eventually creates designs with edges and corners that look striking on human hair. The effect almost looks like light shining onto the wearer's heads.
This design comes to a V at the center of the bangs, and the pink color against the red hair looks like a subtle glow.
It works on short hair, too, but it seems to only work on straight hair.
The design looks good this way, but what about when you have to see?
This one looks like sunset light coming through the blinds.
The design seems to work best on straight hair, and the hair must be combed for the design to take shape. It's not clear how well the style will hold up in everyday life. Plus, bright hair dye often fades after one or two washes. Still, the effect is pretty cool, and even if it only lasts a short while, it creates a striking look.
The pixels are actually the least weird part of this hairstyle.
Look closely and you'll see this is the front of the head (the mouth is at the bottom). The back of the head is shaved. We admire your bravery on the hair frontier, stranger!
These angled shapes are a twist on the square "pixel" shape.
So if you're thinking of changing it up, maybe you should consider a pixel 'do. All you need to do is visit x-pression in Madrid and you'll be on your way to a new style!
