This craze is everywhere; from cat-walk to high-street, Hollywood to the charts, all of the celebrities and designers are at it. Whether it’s the outlandish fashionistas that are Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, or the more demure types such as Jennifer Lawrence and even Helen Mirren! They’re rocking a variety of pastel shades, and I for one am totally in love with it!
I used to think colourful hair was just for teenagers, art teachers and middle aged women who were having a crisis, but pastel hair has totally changed my mind! Pastel hair really does give you the best of both worlds: a pop of colour sure to turn heads, and all without looking like your nephew’s favourite anime character.
It’s such a soft and versatile look that you can also pull off a range of vibes with pastel hair, whether you’re a beautiful boho babe with sultry pink locks or a grungey 90s chick with mermaid blue hair, you’re sure to be on trend! I challenge you to look through your favourite fashion mag without seeing at least one pastelled beauty- go on!
It’s easy to maintain and an affordable way to get a drastic new look: just keep adding a splash of colour in with your conditioner and proceed as normal. It’s great for updating a dull looking blonde, eliminating greys or brightening darker hair. And if you’re not quite brave enough to take the plunge, there are loads of options! Ombre hair is beautiful, and a colourful ombre is even better! Or maybe just add one rogue streak, or a flash of colour in your fringe. However you do it, you’ll look great.
So, join me, Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus, Hellen Mirren and say ‘to hell with my natural shade!’ and embrace your new favourite trend.
