If you are a minimalist who loves indulging in the latest in the beauty world then this might be your favourite way to wear the trend. This one is subtle in its approach and edgy enough to help you make a head-turning statement. It involves dipping the lower half of the topmost layers of your hair in a contrasting shade and can be easily done at home. Pick up your fave hue and get to work ladies.
When it comes to hair colour, a handful of styles are reigning supreme right now: skunk hair, balayage, and all-around blonde being some of them. But if you’re looking to make a statement and show off your creativity in a more subtle way, then this hair colour style is perf for you. The best bits? It works on all hair types, textures and requires little-to-no maintenance. Think bright pink, blonde and blue.
This blonde colour melt looks stunning in a short crop. The curls and asymmetric cut make it especially stunning. Adding a few layers on top will do the trick for folks with long tresses and it looks undeniable chic. We’re suckers for bright-hued highlights, so it’s no wonder we’re swooning over this fad.
If you’re looking for an easy way to elevate your overall look, this iteration of the umbrella hair colour trend might be just the thing for you. For glam queens who are always up for trying something new, this one is for you. It’s effortless, stand-out and a perf hair switch up for those of us who love being the first one to usher in a new beauty trend.
Here’s yet another subtle version to wear the colour-blocking trend. If you are looking for a chic yet standout variation, opt for this classic style. It involves dividing the hair into two sections, the lower half dyed in a natural blend – a colour that’s closer to your natural hair shade. A solid-hued unnatural opposite on the upper half will round off the look well. It will also add an illusion of density and depth to your strands.
If you prefer tying your hair down on most days, consider this chic variant of the trend. Even a thin layer on the top of your mane can make you go from zero to hero. It will impart a bold sensibility that’s effortlessly understated and playfully chic. It’s an easy version of the wildly popular hair trend and looks oh-so-stylish.
