Heat-Activated, Prismatic Color: What It Is & How To Use It

If we did a double-take, we KNOW you did too. We got an exclusive look at this prismatic color line to share how it works with different style inspo you can add a holographic shine to. Plus, learn how to retail this for any special event that needs an eye-catching look!

 

Three Ways To Use Holographic Haircolor

The oil spill-looking hue of colors from Schwarzkopf Professional’s new Colour Alchemy is quickly taking over social media. The prismatic, heat-responsive temporary haircolor (that washes out in one rinse!) combines art and science by adhering micro-prisms to the hair that create instant holographic effects.

1. Create 2022’s Hottest Festival Hair Trend 

Have any rave babe clients that would love a holographic shine on their hair? We thought so. Colour Alchemy is the perfect topper for any braided, slicked back or buzzed look ready for a special weekend.

 

The haircolor is heat activated, meaning once it’s applied you want to be out in the sun or under a blow dryer! The color-changing, holographic effects will take over and have heads turning in any crowd. Retail this to your clients for special events, (Halloween!) or schedule a styling appointment to get creative before a concert.

2. Elevate Your Clients’ Bachelorette & Special Event Hairstyles 

Because honestly, who doesn’t want to try color-shifting hair? For a fun pop at a vibey event or bachelorette trip, apply Colour Alchemy to any upstyle.

 

You just need a color brush and bowl to apply a thin layer of the prismatic haircolor to styled, dry hair. Heat like sunshine or a blow dryer will do the rest! Plus, it’s easy to rinse off with some water when clients are ready for their next look.
