Is This The Most Seasational Look Ever?

Rainbow hair just grown up and become all shades of sophisticated!

Meet Abalone Hair. Or as we Kiwi folk would call it - paua hair.

Look at it. Just look at it. You can almost hear the shushing of sea on sand, the crashing of waves on rocks.

To be fair it's a look that has popped up here and there for a while now, but it's new to us and we're obsessed. It's chic yet playful.


AND - it's a colour that can be rocked no matter what length of hair you have. 


While some hair colour trends have us going 'yeah, nah' this is one trend we would be more than happy to shell out for. Pun. Intended.

So... what say you my beauties? Are you a fan of paua hair? Is it a pearler? Or a pass? Chat away...

I love this but im too lazy for the upkeep!

This looks awesome havent seen anything like it before

Gorgeous! Especially the first pic. Can't afford to shell out for it or maintain the look when the roots grow out.

Pun intended? Lol

I didn't originally notice but now the pun's intended. lol

Lol. I agree though. You would have to shell out q lot to maintain this.

Plus if you've got dark hair like me you would have to bleach your hair first.

Looks pretty. Not my cup of tea though.

Hmm, love the concept, but I don't like the overall effect! The bob is quite nice, but it just looks a bit messy?

Wow! I think it looks really pretty.

I love it!

I think the last pic is a pearler but the others look like a lot of maintenance.

That's gorgeous. I'm not sure how many people could pull it off tho...

I love it but it wouldn't work on short hair I don't think. Paua hair sounds much nicer than abalone hair.

I would this for my hair, though I doubt i could afford it or the upkeep

Oh, these looks are gorgeous, I wish I had hair like this.

Pretty! But not for me

Wow these hair colours are stunning! However I definitely think they only look good in these photos (e.g. shiny and freshly styled from the salon). Can you imagine this all frizzy and dry rolling out of bed in the morning haha!

Omg love love love this, so wish I could do this. I did however spend 6 hours creating a rainbow look with braids in my daughter's hair. She absolutely loves them. She would also love this style no doubt too so definitely not going to show her as she'll start getting ideas ha ha ha.

Good on you -lots of fun for the young
