If you are looking for some fiery, spirited discourse to engage in–and, in this economy, who among us is not?–you have a lot of options. You could get in on the Lena Dunham/Lamby saga. The Great British-American Egg Cup Debate. Literally anything that’s going on in American politics right now. Or, perhaps, you could dip your toe into the waters of salmon sushi hair.
What, you may be asking, is salmon sushi hair? Well, that depends who you ask. According to the L.A-based hair stylist who originated the term, Jessica Gonzalez, salmon sushi hair is hair with rose gold dye in it, plus an addition of orange, yellow, and pink.
This is what it looks like:
If you’re thinking that this looks like rose gold hair, which is more or less the same thing as millennial pink hair, which itself is just…pink hair, you’re right. To someone who doesn’t spend their whole day in a hair salon, this hair color is no different from any other hair color you’ve been seeing over the past few years. It’s pink hair. It’s nothing new.
Still. Regardless of how you feel about arbitrary titles being applied to the same things over and over again in order to make them feel “fresh,” at least one thing feels true in this particular situation--this particular shade of pink will always look reasonably cool. And, now that it’s summer, it’s as good a time as ever to try dying your hair. But why limit yourself solely to pink?
