Trend Watch: The Brighter, The Better
I love watching new hair trends, whether they are coming or going. Now there are so many ways to add color and texture, the options are endless. With more options, women now have the freedom to accessorize their hair to match their outfit so you can look polished head to toe (literally!). I recently came across two other upcoming color trends which are also both temporary and easy to DIY.
Bright colors are EVERYWHERE!! I know adding bright colors to your hair is not new, however previously it was more of a punk-rocker look, something that Avril Lavigne always had. But about one year ago I started noticing more of my clients requesting bright colored highlights like pink, red, or blue. At about the same time, more women were requesting the ombre look which was being rocked by all the A-list celebs. Now the two looks have morphed into one with bright colored ombres. I absolutely love the way this looks; it’s fun, sexy and feminine.
I’m sure you’re thinking there is no way you could wear this to work or school however the beauty of what has come to be known as “hair chalking” is it is temporary! You can get this super cute look and just wash it out after and return to our natural color. In fact, I love this so much that I am currently looking for a supplier (I will keep you posted!). With that being said, I would also love to hear what you think of it.
If you wanted to have a thick highlight of bright bubblegum pink you would typically have to first bleach your hair and then dye it. Even when you do this and put your hair through all the chemical torture the fact is the dye would fade and would not look so hot after a couple of washes.
Clip-in highlights are a great option (in my opinion) for 5 MAJOR reasons...
#1 They are temporary (remove in seconds!)
#2 Get a few colors and you can mix and match with your outfit
#3 No chemicals, no glue, NO DAMAGE!
#4 DIY (easy) – don’t need to pay to have them applied at a salon
#5 Affordable, reusable and long lasting
I have worn them myself and they are also super comfortable. I forget I’m even wearing them!
(This is a pic of me wearing my bright pink clip-in highlight. Unfortunately the picture doesn't show how awesome the color really is.)
I always love hearing your opinions through blog comments, facebook or emails but this time I REALLY want to hear your opinion on these trends. Do you think Picasso Hair Feathers should start supplying these as well? Let me know!
