There’s no doubt that betta fish have gorgeous, technicolor scales, but these photos prove their bold hues are cause for undeniably cool style inspo. After pinning tons of mermaid hair looks with gorgeous, cool-hued effects, we were excited to soak up another underwater-inspired look, dubbed “betta-fish hair” by Roxie Darling of New York City's Haircolor Studio.
“I recently observed the organic flow of color in their bodies,” Roxie told Refinery29. “I thought there was a way to make that translate into hair, since hair is also a natural, moving fiber.”
Turns out the effects are just as pretty as they sound, as she layered color onto a blue base for a surprisingly understated pastel look that one-ups the ombré mermaid trend.
