Porange Is the New Black

-------

BLOG_HairFashion’s either very bored with natural hair color or seriously feeling a need to rebel, because unconventional dye jobs are still going strong. Yesterday, Charlotte Free opened Chanel Cruise with a curious color choice I like to call “porange.” That is, because it exists somewhere between pink and orange. This instantly conjured up flashbacks of failed attempts to DIY “dye” my blond hair with a fluorescent pink highlighter in high school. (The result? Porange, of course.) But, if any luxury brand can turn one person’s idea of a flop into a chic success, it’s Chanel. Does this mean it’s time to stock up on markers? Probably not. But with My Little Pony-esque dye jobs feeling as ubiquitous as platinum, we find this ironic color sort of refreshing.
