Well, we’re here to give you all the deets.
Skunk hair is a dual-tone hair trend with light and dark hues ramming right up against each other. From the ultimate style queen, Dua Lipa to pop star, Billie Ellish- these trend-minded celebs are making skunk hair instantly covetable and we’re obsessed.
Hence, we undertook the mission to show you exactly how to pull off the skunk-hair trend. Whether your style more classic, trend-forward, or anything in between- you’ll feel inspired to re-create it ASAP. So, scroll down to see the coolest iterations that we’re loving right now.
We are calling it: Dua Lipa is the connoisseur of the skunk-hair and we’re officially obsessed with her take on this trend. This style in particular ditches all the hair color rules of the past decade when the soft and natural blend were the front-runners of the beauty world. With some ‘90s inspired face-framing layers hanging down the face, it instantly elevated the overall styles and we are inspired to try this eccentric look asap.
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 shortest of frame-framing layers in a contrasting shade and can be easily done at home (as we are not going to see our trusty stylists anytime soon).
The choice of the colour scheme takes this version up a notch making it one of our favourites. If you like to keep things spicy, trade in the blonde or the bleached out white for a pop of colour and you’ll be nailing a next-level, incredible take on skunk hair colour. With Bella Hadid wearing such a statement-making look, this is a trend that’s sure to bubble up in the days ahead.
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 half and half pairing. It involves dividing the hair into two sections, the upper half dyed in a natural blend – a colour that’s closer to your natural hair shade with solid-hued unnatural opposite on the lower half. It will also add an Illusion of density and depth to your strands.
If you prefer tying your hair up as a bun most days, consider this half and half variant of the trend. Even a thin layer on the base 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.
Billie Elish is a superstar known for her signature style. She doesn’t shy away from trying the boldest of trends and creating some of her own. This time she added a neon contrast to her roots that’s dripping down into deep black ends. This is the freshest mix of skunk hair with balayage that have been influencing the hair colour space for a long time now.
So, are you ready for a wave of compliments coming your way?
