Two heavenly new hair trends for summer
Two new hair trends have descended on Instagram – and I’m so torn I can’t even!
The first one is #SunsetHair. Yes, women are dyeing their hair to mimic actual sunsets – and it’s insanely beautiful, as you can see…
A super moody blue and pink version:
A more subtle, balayage-tinted take:
It looks even more impressive in a bun:
Best brush game ever (video):
NB: If you colour your hair, be sure to use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner (try Yes To Cucumbers Colour Protection Shampoo and Conditioner) and a treatment such as Paul Mitchell Colour Protect Reconstructive Treatment to keep it in tip top condition.
If sunset hair is a bit OTT for you, you’ll probably prefer this second look (which is also somewhat simpler to pull off).
Enter gold leaf hair – aka the perfect festive beauty look…
A sprinkling at the roots:
A sleek statement side part:
A glorious gold-flecked bob:
It’s a lot like these glitter roots, but with a distinctly Christmassy feel. The best part about the trend? It’s ridiculously easy to replicate! Here’s how:
Step 1: Use a paintbrush to paint hair mousse (try VO5 Mega Hold Mousse or Schwarzkopf Extra Care Strong Styling Mousse) onto your hair where you want the gold leaf to go.
Step 2: Carefully lay gold leafs on top of the mousse.
Step 3: Use the paintbrush to gently pat them down.
Step 4: Let it set for a few minutes to harden and voilà! Gold leaf hair glamazon!
I for one plan on experimenting with gold leaf all weekend. Who’s with me?!
