Hair Inspired by the Gryffindor House is All Over Instagram and It’s… a Lot

By  | 

Just yesterday, we helped spread the news about an awesome, new Harry Potter-inspired hair color trend that was inspired by the delicious butterscotch beverage Butterbeer. But, today is a whole new day, ladies and gents, and now we’re here to tell you all about Gryffindor hair, a trend that — we’ll be honest — we’re not loving.

When Virginia Beach-based hair colorist Crystal Casey took to Instagram to share her new creation, we were intrigued, but also confused AF. The hair combines red and yellow, which, as we all know, are the colors of the Gryffindor house. Crystal also threw in some green, blue and even purple, because apparently, two colors just weren’t enough.

Although we’re still trying to warm up to this trend ourselves, we’re not going to knock the diehard Potterheads who are willing to rock the bold look. And, if you’re one of those confident fans who are interested in trying the new trend, Crystal posted a short tutorial on Instagram to show you how she achieved the right color and pattern.

When Allure reached out to Crystal about her latest creation, she did have some advice for all of those HP diehards who are planning to show the photo to their colorists in hopes that they’ll be able to recreate it for them. Crystal said, “Proper care and maintenance for this type of color [includes] color-safe, sulfate- and paraben-free shampoo and conditioner. This type of color can be high maintenance depending on how you care for it.” Hmm… good to know!

Even though we’re not particularly here for the Gryffindor hair trend, we’ve gotta say, when rocked with confidence, it actually does look pretty cool. But, if you’re not feelin’ it, maybe Butterbeer hair is more your speed — and that’s perfectly okay!

⚡️GRYFFINDOR⚡️ Natural hair color isn’t something I post a lot of, nor are muted tones. I’ve been living 100% outside of my box lately trying to create palettes & placements that make me THE MOST uncomfortable. Things that I am not 100% certain of the outcome. I had an idea for this and when all was said & done it took me a minute to actually love it & appreciate my artwork. W͢H͢Y you ask? Bc I’m used to perfection. I want my placement and my styling to be perfect every??time ?? Hard lines are unpredictable, add that to trying to capture hair in motion & it becomes a million times more unpredictable. I’ve spent every day off for the last 3 weeks creating these kinds of looks, learning the placements & photographing them. I keep studying the images trying to see where I went wrong and what can be fixed to make it “perfect” but that’s the thing, art isn’t always perfect, and even if it’s perfect to you it may not be to someone else. Art is expression, it’s creative, it’s not a safe bet wrapped in a little bow. Art is your perception of perfect. Not what the industry standards are.
