You call that pink?
September 17, 2008
You may have been in the salon when the hairdressers are debating the interpretation of a particular shade of blonde. “It’s a bit orange.” “No, I really think it’s gold.” “Get a piece of white paper so we can compare it.”
Yup. We are color geeks. A client made a comment about her red purse and we all instantly began giving our opinion of what color the purse was. Orange. Salmon. Adobe.
In the spirit of your hair color geeks, I have an article to share with you about Pink and how our brain makes it up. Enjoy!
The light spectrum has a colour missing because it does not feel the need to ‘close the loop’ in the way that our brains do. We need colour to make sense of the world, but equally we need to make sense of colour; even if that means taking opposite ends of the spectrum and bringing them together.
