As people look around the different cities of our fair country, one might notice that many people nowadays are coloring their hair to cover grey or just for the fun of it. One difference among the younger generation and the older generation is the colors that are chosen for their hair. The younger generation of this day and age seem to prefer wild colors such as Infra Red, Mystic Heather, Deadly Nightshade, Tiger Lily, etc, as self-expression compared to the older generation choosing natural shades to cover the signs of aging. This can be seen in the rising number of young people that are seen around with these types of wild colors. Not all young people choose the wild colors over natural shades because some choose the natural shades as self-expression. Not sticking to the ways of their parents, teens are showing they can be more independent. Many of us do not want to grow up to be like our parents so coloring our hair is one way to be different. In the past our parents were usually prohibited to color their hair unless it was a natural shade suck as black or brown. Today, we are allowed to dye our hair colors such as Infra Red, AfterMidnight Blue, Pillarbox Red or even Electric Lizard Green.
A website by the name of Manic Panic.com caters specifically to the needs of those who color their hair wild shades of reds, blues, purples, pinks, etc. This company was one of the world’s first creators of such colors. The site offers many colors from the spectrum of all colors. There are such colors as Green Envy, Pillarbox Red, Cotton Candy Pink, and Virgin Snow, just to name a few. The founders of the site created the hair products for others and also for their use so anyone can enjoy transforming dull or naturally colored hair into a forest of vibrant color. Celebrities such as Cyndi Lauper and Keoki use Manic Panic’s products to color their hair. The website states that these celebrities use the hair colors often. This site is evidence that the trend of dying one’s hair a wild shade exists in the United States. Other companies are also taking part in the wild hair color business so as to keep up with the current competition. Companies such as BWild, Hot Head, and even Jerome Russell are participating in the trend of wild hair color to accommodate both the younger and the older population.
On the other hand, classic companies such as Clairol, Dark & Lovely and L’Oreal still offer the majority of the natural hair colors that one can buy in a store such as Wal-Mart. These companies can have a productive future as long as they are able to keep up with all other forms of competition. As to my current knowledge, none of these companies offer outrageous colors such as Pillarbox Red, or AfterMidnight. Sticking to the traditional colors is not a bad thing because there is still a business in natural hair colors. People still like to color their hair so it looks like the color they used to have or a lighter or darker...
