Pick a color, any color. Our new Spring Beauty Guide inspired us to consider our hair a blank canvas with a rainbow of opportunities. Last night, Soo Joo Park—one of Style.com’s favorite models and a champion of the platinum trend—posted a selfie to Instagram
Katy Perry is no stranger to candy-colored hair—she’s dipped and dyed her way throughout much of the spectrum—but her latest shade change is “Slime Green for Spring,” as she captioned her selfie on Instagram. She also freshened up her look with a shorter cut and thick fringe. Rainbow hues are certainly becoming more prevalent on both the runway and the red carpet, but at least Perry is veering away from the violet trend that has recently taken hold of Hollywood and opted for greener pastures instead.
We saw pastel streaks pop up on both the menswear and couture runways, but it appears that designers (like Rodarte, who recently Instagrammed this throwback image of Bo Don from the February 2011 issue of Wallpaper), pop stars such as Bonnie McKee and Demi Lovato, and model Chloe Norgaard are thinking pink. The “American Girl” singer arrived at the Grammys with her signature ombré strands, and Norgaard, who has run the gamut on the hair color spectrum, appeared in the Spring 2014 lookbook for The 2 Bandits sporting a singular shade of blush (save for her brunette roots). Will Kate and Laura Mulleavy continue the trend when it comes to the beauty look for their forthcoming Fall collection? We’ll find out in just two weeks’ time.
Designers dabbled with an extensive palette of pastels for Spring 2014—from kicky ice blue skirts and lilac Mary Janes at Miu Miu, to sherbet-colored, ruffled shift dresses, and ostrich plume-adorned, peach slingbacks at Rochas. Given the blustery weather, however, it doesn’t appear that any of the aforementioned options would be a go today. One way to get in on the action early (blizzards be damned!) is to wear these shades on your eyes, cheeks, lips, nails, and strands. Shop this week’s Style Hunter for a range of beauty finds in Easter egg hues to get you through the darkest days of winter.
Braids and bold lips abounded on the red carpet in 2013, but oddly enough, so did pink hair color. From young starlets to a more, ahem, mature crowd, rose-tinted strands made an appearance at multiple awards shows and galas. Diane Kruger dyed the ends of her knotted ponytail a shocking shade for the Met ball, while Sienna Miller opted for an allover pastel hue at the British Fashion Awards. And then there was Helen Mirren, who at 68 showed her true colors at the BAFTAs. Mirren may have played the conservative royal mum (for which she won an Oscar in 2007), but this beauty risk might even make the Queen blush.
