We talked about “Green Hair” in one of our earliest posts (here at realhairstyles.net.) We covered the grassy shade in honor of Earth Day. Above is the example from back then that came from Urban Outfitters. WE thought the verdigris strands were gorg, but didn’t expect many of you to agree. At that time, only the boldest celebs wore shocking haircolors (think Avril Lavigne, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Katy Perry.) Of course girls and women in their 20s have long chosen color their hair on the wild side to reflect their independence, peer group or to choose something just for the fun of it!
Only a few years ago, unnatural colors were rare among the rich and famous. Now green fits one of the “in” color trends now: bold brights, pastels, neon or rainbows.
Today’s celebs who are dipping into the cool color pool include names you might expect such as fashionista January Jones, who recently went from sleek to pink. But then there’s actresses you wouldn’t expect to stray from the ordinary. For instance, gorgeous Jaime King has gone from blond glamour to true blue, green, yellow and some shades in between. It seems like celebs are wearing unusual hues because they’re sure to get free publicity. Just think how many times you’ve seen news about another star going technicolor!
And really there’s no reason not to follow the movement: simply use temporary dye, feathers, extensions or even “chalk” coloring (Katy does hers with HAIR FLAIRS COLOR RUB). These modern-day tools let you enjoy the look while it’s hot without making a long-term commitment.
You know a trend’s hot if January Jones is wearing it, and other celebs are following her lead. While they won’t stick with pink long, we predict real women will be trying on pink for a while…just for the fun of it! January’s pink highlights are so subtle they’re barely noticeable. Meanwhile Chloe Moretz (left) dons pink on one side and Ashley Benson (right) paints her ends pink. when we first saw Chloe and Ashley’s hot pink, it looked weird to us. But soon we decided it’s pretty, playful and delicious…like cotton candy or bubblegum. We’re saved the best news for last: you don’t have to make a long-term commitment to the pastel streaks: simply clip in extensions/feathers or use temporary haircolor.
