Dascha Polanco Just Won Pastel Hair

Dascha Polanco, a.k.a. Daya Diaz on your favorite show Orange Is the New Black, has officially joined the pastel-hair club. The actress snapped a backseat selfie between NYFW shows, boasting a hair color that would make a unicorn weep with pride: a silvery shade of blue that slowly transitions into a shock of violet at her tips. It's the kind of dye job that's impossible to look away from: Well done, Dascha.
While going pastel as a woman of color presents its own set of challenges, Dascha takes to her new 'do like My Little Pony to a rainbow. Violet is definitely a popular hue when it comes to this trend, and we're digging Dascha's ombré interpretation. It goes to show that rainbow hair isn't just sticking around — it's evolving. What's next? Three-toned strands? Be still, our beating hearts.
