Fall Hair Color Trend: Geode

Continuing our look at fall hair color trends we're in love with this autumn...

What is Geode hair?

This isn't rainbow hair, it's geode hair. That is, vibrant, jewel-toned sombré in one or two hues.

And if you're like us and it's been a few years since your last geology class, here's an actual geode for reference...

Fortunately, Geode hair only looks complicated. Perfecter of the trend, Cherin Choi starts by lightening her clients hair from the bottom up, without bleaching the roots. "The lightened hair is lifted to a pale yellow, then is toned to a blondish white using Redken Shades 9v/clear to eliminate yellow," Choi told Refinery29. "The hair is completely dried, then the amethyst purple is applied on the mid sections, then the moonstone blue onto the very tips." Here comes the trick: "I use a brush and emulsify with my hands to blend the colors." This makes the grow-out process completely painless.

Why do we love it?

The dreamy, iridescent amethyst shade looks like a sparkling gem when it catches the light —and it's already trending among the top rainbow hair colorists in the game.

What does it look like?

Here are a few of our favorite looks...
