Succulent hair is officially a thing, and we don’t know how we feel

First, it was the succulent nails (and they were gross), but now a new plant-based beauty trend has hit the Internet, and it's not half bad.

I admit that I would not be trying it myself, but for those of you who like mad hair colours- succulent hair may just be your new bae!

What is it though?

Basically, succulent hair is a new layered dye trend that incorporates all of the colours in succulents. 

These are not just green shades, succulents actually have gorgeous purple and blue undertones, which makes for a pretty cool hair style. 


INSTAGRAM HAIR TREND OF THE WEEK! Meet #SUCCULENTHAIR…haircolor inspired by everyone’s favorite wedding favor! Stylists across the U.S. have been dyeing their clients' locks with a gorgeous mix of green, purple, teal, and pink to mimic the natural colors of succulents. On Instagram, under the #succulenthair tag, you'll find excellent examples of the hair-color trend—in between pictures of women literally wearing tiny succulents in their hair on their wedding days. Aly Louch, a stylist at Shear Excitement Salon & Spa in Pompano Beach, Florida, tried out succulent hair on a client who is obsessed with the plants. "We had been talking about creating a piece inspired by succulents for some time," Louch tells Allure. "Finally, we just decided to stop talking about it and do it." Before the succulent dye job, the model had different shades of blue, purple, and pink in her hair, so Louch had to strip her hair of the rainbow entirely before starting the coloring process. Once the model's hair was basically a blank canvas, Louch brushed on a mix of vivid greens, leaving out the bottom two inches. Then Louch went back in to "melt and diffuse the ends with a mixture of pink, magenta, and wild orchid with a drop of violet," she says. #redavid #redavidhair #hair #fashion #beauty #americansalon #modernsalon #beautylaunchpad #behindthechair #hairscience #orchidoil #sciencethatworks #stylingthatstuns #hairtrend #trend #haircolor #unicorntribe
