Right radical is 'delicate hairs', which here means 'attractive adornment'. Left radical is a Non-General Use character, its upper element one of the radical versions of 'hand', and its lower element 'tree' (木). It means, 'hand plucking from tree', but is used phonetically here to mean 'variety'. This character originally meant, 'attractive and varied adornment', which developed into meaning 'attractive color', and then 'color' in general. Henshall suggests taking the 'hair' radical as 'hairs of a brush' as a mnemonic: 'Brush paints colors of blossoms taken from tree.'
