hair trend


Earlier in the week, we were gifted with the wonder of fruit juice hair.

It sure would seem as though hairstylists are getting very creative lately, messing around with different colours.

And we are HERE FOR IT. 

The latest hair colour trend? Blackberry hair, inspired by the most delicious berry of them all (sorry strawbs, still love you though). 

Nine times out of ten, amazing hair colour tends to be suited to blonde tones – they're just easier to dye. 

However, one of the reasons we love blackberry hair is because it is perfect for those of you living on the darker side of life. 

US-based hairstylist Megan Schipani recently created this berry inspired look, and shared the result on her gorgeous Instagram page. 

“My client came in telling me that she was a busy mom who needed low-maintenance colour that was still fun. The day before her appointment, I had received a few packages of a new direct-dye line and knowing that my client was in the market for purples, it just clicked,” Schipani told the gorge folks at Allure. 

Schipani insists that the look is relatively low maintenance when it's all done, however achieving the look is a gruelling enough process. 

She spent around eight hours (CHRIST) lightening her client’s hair using a balayage technique, being careful to only lighten only the strands that would be dyed purple.

After that lengthy job, she went on to create the "perfect level 8 blonde-balayage" base, she applied shades in Purple with a hint of Blue over the blonde.

“Believe it or not, this colour really doesn’t require a whole lot of care, apart from the typical cold rinses and infrequent washing routine. Since I didn't bleach her out or touch her roots, the colour should grow out super smoothly.” 

Sounds good to me. 

Would you try this gorge shade? 



We have seen so many bizarre hair trends this year, from rainbow hair to unicorn hair, and we loved all of them.

HOWEVER, while these mad trends have been very pretty, we admit that we wouldn't be brave enough to try them.

The latest hair trend that we are obsessed with is way more achievable, and not as scary as multi-coloured hair.

Tiger hair has been doing the rounds on Instagram, and it's like a new version of balayage.

Named after the semi-precious tiger eye stone, the hair colour mimics the rich reds, golds and browns in the stone’s signature design.

The results are to dye for (see what we did there?)

The best part is that no bleach is used to achieve this look, making it wicked good for your hair. 

This is definitely a look we want to try! 



Just last week we raved about navy hair becoming one of springs biggest hair trends.

Now teenage makeup mogul Kylie Jenner has taken some inspiration from her past and reached for a navy wig to rock the look.

The reality TV star previously debuted navy locks back in 2015, but she's clearly not obver the blue-black hue.

Kylie has had every hair colour under the sun, from blonde to green to teal, but we love the wearability of the navy shade.

From the most subtle sheen to full on navy blue, this hair colour is destined to freshen up tired, wintry locks. 

Taking to Snapchat (of course) Kylie flaunted the lush look with wig stylist Tokyo Stylez before jetting off to New York to launch her latest pop-up, and hinted that the two were working on a secret project.

We're wondering if the duo are working on a set of wigs, so people can copy Kylie's looks without the commitment. 

We know which shade we would opt for. 


We're only a few weeks into 2017 and the year's biggest hair colour trends are already starting to reveal themselves.

The good news is that 2017 will be the year of hair trends that we can all pull off, and it is not what we expected.

2017's hottest hair trend is inspired by Hygge, which describes the distinctly Danish feeling of cosiness and contentment. 

What exactly does this mean?

Basically this year is all about warmth and comfort, with soft coppers, rich browns, buttery blondes, and creamy oranges… YAY!

The beauty of this toasty trend is that it is for everyone, and is not a crazy, daring shade like peach or purple. 

No rainbow hair here ladies, just a whole lotta hygge. 



If you are on the hunt for a fresh new hair colour, why not try out navy locks?

Less maintenance than a bright aqua and a touch more interesting than it's close cousin black, navy hair is our new Instagram obsession. 

It may sound kind of out-there, but we did some digging, and navy hair is super popular on the social media platform.

It is definitely a daring shade, but compared to the likes of unicorn hair and rainbow hair, it's a subtle take on alternative style. 

And luckily, it looks amazing on any skin tone. 

Celebrities like Katy Perry and Kylie Jenner have rocked navy hair, ao we have them to thank for the ultimate hair inspiration.

The best part of this colour is that it doesn't involve massive up-keep, which is good news for those of us who cant be arsed to hit the (dye) bottle every other week.

From the most subtle sheen to full on navy blue, this hair colour is destined to freshen up tired, wintery locks. 



Emoji's are a saving grace when it comes to our virtual exchanges.

From the smiling face that makes the snarky message to your house mate about dishes seem nonaggressive, to the toasting pints when you want to go out, emojis are a language of their own.

Which is why we weren't all that surprised when we discovered that certain emojis are the inspiration behind some of 2017's most unusual hair trends.

Makeup mogul and sister to Louis, Lottie Thomlinson just revealed her ode to the emoji in the form of an intricate hair tapestry.

While this look, created by the hair heroes at Bleach London, definitely isn't for everyone, festival season is fast approaching and we can think of no better way to hide our worse-for-wear festival hair.

Lottie went for a heart eyes emoji in her hair, and showed off the stand-out look on her Snapchat.

Bleach London first debuted the tapestry look a few months ago, and we've been waiting for it to make a come back ever since.

While it's definitely not the most wearable, the crochet emojis are so cute we may just have to try it for ourselves once Forbidden Fruit rolls around.

Another emoji getting a hair makeover is Kim K's favourite, the peach emoji.

Bleach Londons Awkward Peach perfectly mimics the subtle hue of the peach emoji, and it's definitely the ideal shade for summer.

Off to the hairdressers we go… 




Ladies, there is a new hair trend on the horizon, and we are already obsessed with it.

The beautiful Vanessa Kirby recently hit the red carpet of the SAG awards, donning beautiful gold chains in her hair. 

The star of The Crown rocked a beautiful messy blond braid, equipped with some serious metallic armour, creating an edgy, yet feminine style. 

We reckon this look would be easy to replicate using some costume jewelry (unless you have some chain mail lying around the house!)

Who needs necklaces and rings, when you can add some sparkle to your hairstyle. 

This is our weekend look SORTED. 


Just when you thought hair trends couldn't possibly get any weirder… enter: hair stencilling.

Yes, it exactly what you think it is, using a stencil to dye a specific design onto your hair.

Janine Ker, an artist and hair stylist, popularised this trend earlier this year, and it has been all over Instagram ever since. 

No we will admit that some of these looks are sort of extreme, but the more subtle designs are really gorgoeus. 

Yes, we want to try this trend IMMEDIATELY.

Pass the spray paint, please.  



From rainbow hair and glitter roots to baby bangs and balayage, 2016 was the year that Instagram hair trends took over.

With the likes of Kylie Jenner and Lady Gaga changing up their tresses at the drop of a hat, out-there hair has never been hotter.

The latest trend breaking the Internet has got to be glow in the dark hair, with stylist to the stars Guy Tang championing the trend.

The specialist do' is black light sensitive, illuminating under the lighting and making us seriously nostalgic for the days when glow sticks were an acceptable part of going-out attire.

The look is technically called 'phoenix hair' and is created with unique rainbow hair dye that will definitely resurrect your look from the ashes.

While a luminous look may not be for everyone, the glow is hidden without a black light, keeping it cool as well as crucially wearable.

During the day, the look is still striking, and mimics colourful rainbow hair depending on the chosen shades. 

It's only under club lighting that the neon glow comes to life. Catching that lad's eye on the Coppers dance floor will be a cinch. 

Some people have taken to recreating the look using neon Sharpie pens, which FYI is not recommended, as the professional neon hair dye used by Tang is very tricky to get your hands on.

Tang recommends doing back-to-back bleaching to lighten the hair as much as possible before applying the kitsch colours.

Don't dismay if this look is officially your new  #hairgoals, alternative brand Arctic Fox, which is renowned for it's out-there colours, has just dropped a fluorescent shade called neon moon, perfect for a DIY glow in the dark hair project.



Festival trends come and go, and along with tribal print, Hunter wellies and fringed everything, we had banished glitter roots to the sartorial scrap heap.

The look was touted as being the ultimate cover up for grown out or oily roots this summer and was spotted on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Miley Cyrus's roots sparkling in the sunshine at the US's biggest festivals.

Irish girls were quick to pick up on the trend, and while we may not have gotten quite the same weather as Coachella, the masses adopted the sparkly hair look at Electric Picnic, Longitude and Forbidden Fruit.

This time around, the glitter hair trend has had a sleek and chic makeover, and is the ultimate statement hair look to be paired with a festive frock rather than a three day camping ticket. 

While attempting this Christmas trend may feel like a bit of an arts and crafts project, your party season style credentials will thank you.

All you need is a strong hair gel, a pot of glitter in your favourite sparkling shade and some hair spray.

We also advise putting down some newspaper or you'll be picking glitter out of your carpets for weeks. The again, you could just say that it's part of your festive interior decor if you don't want to get the Dyson out.

Simply style your hair in your desired part, brush the gel on with a wide toothed comb and apply the glitter as liberally as you like, finishing with a spritz of your favourite hair spray for some extra hold.

The finished look is a sparkly, eye-catching do' that will wash out faster than your holiday spirit induced hangover. You can thank us later.

Yes, you read that correctly, people are hopping on the band waggon of a new hair trend, and it is BIZARRE. 

Super Mario pixel hair is a kind of dye art that was created by the group Xpresion Creativos from Madrid, Spain.

When the model's hair is in moving, it just looks like she has multi-colored highlights.

HOWEVER, when her hair is straight and still, you can see the man himself.

The salon originally posted the hair style on their popular Instagram, and it has since been featured in major publications like Harpers Bazaar and Elle

What do you think ladies? Would you give it a go? 




Yes, colour trends come and go but we have to say we love this one. 

This quirky trend, which has been dubbed the 'Mother of Pearl', uses muted pastel tones which fade throughout the hair for a shimmery, pearly look. 

It definitely has a much more subtle effect than the silver hair trend and we think it is super demure for those of us who just don't want a 'normal' hair colour. 

The look is achieved by bleaching the hair and then using soft blues, pinks and greens to achieve a 'washed out' look. 

It's pretty much a way easier to wear version of the rainbow hair trend. 

Top colour stylist Aura Friedman said that she achieved the look by using her expertise colouring skills. 

Speaking to Pop Sugar, Aura said that she first bleached the hair to a pearl tone (that is the colour just before you reach that silvery hue). She then layered on the brighter colours strategically around the head before washing out.

Well, the result is suitably beautiful. 

Could you rock the Mother of Pearl?
