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.

Celebs—whether their style is outrageous or tame—seem to be taking a cue from Marc Jacobs‘ choppy Spring 2014 wigs and intentionally exposing their roots. Style.com’s platinum blonde social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, who is currently showing off her “dark side,” has affectionately dubbed this look “saving money.” And apparently the phrase “Stars—they’re just like us” rings true (at least when it comes to color touch-ups). Both Nicki Minaj and Dianna Agron showed up on red carpets last night baring the hue they were born with. Perhaps the dying ombré trend is taking higher ground.
Avon announced that Megan Fox will be the face of its latest fragrance, Instinct. “There’s something very primal about it,” Fox says of the scent. “It’s about letting go of your inhibitions and just really experiencing yourself.” For some reason, the Divinyls’ hit song from the nineties immediately comes to mind. YouTube it and put on your headphones.
Splashlights—a term coined by Allure to explain a new highlighting technique in which a horizontal band of hair is bleached from ear to ear—is set to be the next big color trend come New York fashion week.
According to Us Weekly, Kate Middleton’s dad served as photographer for the recently released and low-key family portrait, but the duchess didn’t go without a blow-out for the shot—she enlisted a freelance hairstylist to get her strands camera-ready. We think The Cut sums it up quite perfectly: “Because when your hair is glorious enough to upstage multiple future kings of England, you treat it right.”
The charcoal you used to barbecue all summer long could enhance your beauty routine. Well, not that charcoal, exactly, but The New York Times talks about the purifying benefits of the black stuff for your scalp and skin.
