The use of colorful extensions during New York Fashion Week Spring ’10 was a major trend at shows like Proenza Schouler and Zac Posen. Cynthia Rowley continued this trend during her Fall ’10 show. As I discussed on HOTB, Wella Master Colorist Eva Scrivo created the colored extensions for Cynthia. The designer loved the look so much that she went back to Eva’s salon and got her own hair colored with navy streaks!
Celebs are also sporting this colorful hair trend, including Ashley Olsen, who had pastel blue hair streaks à la Proenza Schouler, and Kelly Osbourne who did the ultra cool all-over pastel thing. To get this look, you’d need to bleach out your hair and cover it with a pale violet dye. Or you could add a pop of color with extensions. Since her colorful extensions on the Cynthia Rowley runway were such a hit, Eva Scrivo is now selling colored clip-in extensions customized at her salon in New York.
You can always contact your favorite salon to see if they do these type of extensions. Or for a quick fix, check out Manic Panic’s Glam Strips. The are clip-in extension strips that come in human or synthetic hair (8″, 10″, 14″, or 18″) in a wide range of colors, like Pretty Flamingo or Atomic Turquoise.
