Two heavenly new hair trends for summer

Two heavenly new hair trends for summer

Two new hair trends have descended on Instagram – and I’m so torn I can’t even! 

Just like these bangin’ mani and pedi colour combos, both looks are perfectly #onpoint for summer (not to mention the fast-approaching New Year’s Eve festivities)… but I’ll let you be the judge. 

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:

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:

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?!

  1. DR JOHN SOCO is simply the best spell caster and helper. My name is Precious Kurlan, Out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony know to all. I’ve been to other spell casters without seeing any result.I just wished I came to you earlier, i got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduce me to Dr John Soco After the Love Spell was done, I finally got a calls from him in 24 hours like DR JOHN SOCO assured me. His spells worked wonders and my husband is back with full of love. It’s a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should forgive him, i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back. I’m really short of words and joyful, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. And now i am a joyful woman once again. Thank you so much Dr John Soco To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster should contact DR John Soco On: You can also Whatsapp him on +1 (706) 871-4571 .
