BEAUTY BAR: Rock Out, Locks Out

Sporting unnatural hair colors is no longer something exclusive to the punk-rock community, and it hasn’t been for a few years now as bold hues have reentered the circuit of mainstream hair trends and flourished. From lavender to rose gold, everyone from celebrities to average Joes have experimented with a hair color hand-selected from rainbows and everywhere in between. In addition to the color choice, the method in which color is applied continues to transform the beauty industry, from ombre and dipdye to balayage and babylights. To have both unique color and application is not unusual, as these ideas complement one another perfectly, and set you apart from the rest.

This is mind, it was an easy choice to highlight (no pun intended) this Fashionista’s summer-appropriate locks that embody hair trends across the board and make her stand out in a crowd. Her prominent purple ombre, which contrasts her dark brown roots in a method referred to as the “halo effect,” is a fun alternative to her natural hair color, and it fits into her slightly edgy spin on fashion. This Fashionista shared with me that purple is only one of several bold and unnatural colors she has had over the last few years, alongside pink and blue.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? With all the inspiration that is trending and tons of talented stylists who can help you make over your hair, achieving a look similar to this Fashionista’s is now more accessible than ever. Though doing so is achievable at home, I would recommend taking your ideas to a salon for the best results. As with any color processing, hair can easily suffer damage if left without treatment, so be sure to use hair masks and deep conditioners to keep ends soft and luscious.
