If you, too, were entranced by the neon-coiffed gal fronting this week's MINKPINK lookbook, her name is Chloe Nørgaard. Born in Cali and raised in Long Island, the LA-based ethereal beauty has quickly gained notoriety for her rainbow dye job, which inspired Rodarte to book her for their fall 2013 runway show during New York Fashion Week. Into the Gloss caught up with the Scandinavian-Danish looker to learn more about her bold head of hair:

Right now it's sort of like 'fire,' which I did myself three weeks ago—I always dye my hair myself. The yellow is Manic Panic Electric Banana. The orange is some weird brand, and the red is Beyond the Zone. I just get gloves and get really messy. It's like painting. I've fucked up so many towels and bathrooms. When I go to the beauty-supply store to shop for dye, I decide based on the colors available, not the brand. But I do like Manic Panic—some of their colors, like this yellow, glow in black lights. So when you're out at night, your head is literally glowing, which is amazing.

Read the full story here and, if you're feeling incredibly brave this week, brew up your own Manic Panic creation.
