rainbow color

Maybe we’re all loving rainbows in support of the recent supreme court decision on gay marriage. Maybe we’re inspired by all the beautiful produce that’s in season, or summer sunsets, or fireworks. Whatever the reason it seems that rainbow hair is making a comeback. We’re seeing lots of variations: entire heads covered in layers of vibrant color and muted spectrums painted through ends. Part of me loves seeing these playful looks and part of me longs for the days of more subtle palettes. What do you think? Are you loving or hating the rainbow trend?

The difference between butterscotch and caramel is a difference in complexity. Caramel is made from white (refined) sugar while butterscotch is made from brown (less refined) sugar that had molasses in it. The flavors in butterscotch are more complex: sweet, bitter, nutty, buttery. All that complexity comes through in this color which blends copper, gold, brown, and a touch of silver for a sweet shade you’ll want to sink your teeth into.
