If you've ever dreamed of having magical, color-changing unicorn hair, today is your lucky day: an actual witch has created the world's first hair dye THAT ACTUALLY CHANGES COLOR ON YOUR HEAD.
My teenage self is losing her mind right now.
Bowker believes that technology and magic are two sides of the same creative coin.
Did you think I was using the term "witch" as hyperbole? I'm not; Lauren is not just a scientist, she is a real-life, practicing witch. And the two things aren't as disparate as they might seem.
“I have always been into the occults and into mixing stuff,” Bowker told Dazed.
“Old school female chemists and doctors had a really bad time with the church and were depicted as witches... Now the occult has bad connotations of being a dark art and being taboo. When really it’s just a spiritual way of living. To me, chemistry and science is witchcraft — and so it should be.”
This may be the closest we ever get to a real-life glamour.
I mean, I've always been more of a Nancy girl — but if I can change my hair color without the power of three times three, I'm in.
And this hair color IS magick — even though we don't know a whole lot about it.
Bowker isn't resting on her laurels — her design house THEUNSEEN is already hard at work creating new magical hair colors. Just yesterday, she shared this #sneakpeek of some upcoming pastels; could this gray-into-rainbow color be ICE?
But before you call your colorist, there are still a lot of unknowns with this dye. We have no idea if we'll be able to use this dye at home, whether it will be for professionals only, or even if it will EVER be available at all.
That sound is my rainbow heart breaking.
