The oil slick is the name of the latest hair color trend designed for all women with brown or black hair.
The name of this new color could leave you perplexed: the expression literally means “oil slick” . The inspiration for this hair color comes from the shades of color that the oil creates when it is poured on the ground or on its surface.
The color “oil slick” is suitable only for darker-colored hair – it is perfect for the brunette – because it is a color that we could define as “mysterious”.
Thanks to this new hair coloring technique, women with darker hair will no longer be forced to bleach their hair to create bright and glamorous shades.
The oil slick is in fact based on the application of cool shades on brown or black hair, creating shades that change from blue to petrol green, from purple to black.
A kind of rainbow effect that will illuminate even the darkest hair.
Where does the oil slick come from?
The creator is Aura Friedman who explained:
“I tried to recreate the color of petrol or oil when they are wet with rainwater. This technique is ideal for those who have naturally brown hair and do not want to spoil it with bleaching “.

What is certain is that thanks to this technique you can give new light to dark hair without damaging it with traditional bleaching.
