There's a new hair color trend that everyone is talking about but this one has a special twist - it includes a nostalgic nod to a much-beloved childhood snack!
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are not just for little humans. Adults should have no shame in indulging in a good PB and J every now and then but when we think of the majority of the population of PB and J partakers, most of us probably think of kids. Kids and PB and J go together kind of like... PB and J!
As Allure reports, hairstylist Megan Schipani doesn't think that this delicious and so, so simple treat should be limited to childhood nostalgia which is why the Maryland-based hair professional called one of her latest social media-favorited styles "PB and J" hair. Obviously, like many hair stylists, Schipani is a color lover but PB and J hair is something that has taken her love of color to another level.
Not only is it fun to say but can you think of someone with PB and J hair as anything else but a fun-loving and cool person to be around? Of course not! As Schipani wrote on her Instagram account, "PB and J - when your client wants to keep it “natural” but wants something fun."
PB and J hair might be right for you if you have been toying with the idea of rainbow-izing your hair but haven't mustered up the courage yet or can only secretly fantasize about cool colored hair because of your job, etc. Dark and light caramel hues play beautifully along with lavender to royal purple colors.
Schipani achieved her first PB and J hair color by pre-lightening her client's brown hair and then applied a deep purple base before treating different sections to berry and maroon colors. Plan for at least an hour and a half if you are interested in achieving PB and J hair for yourself.
"Depending on your natural color, you might have to lighten it to a level 7 in order for all of the shades to show up," Schipani told Allure. "I do think that the purple and maroon appear brighter on hair that has been pre-lightened so as long as you are willing to do that, then you can definitely have PB and J hair."
