Pastels, Still In Power
If you take a peruse through our new Year In Beauty feature, you’ll be reminded of the 2011 hair trend that just wouldn’t die: ombre hair streaks. The dip-dying technique has persisted long after we ever thought it would—on the runway, on the red carpet, and even in high-end glossies, which continue to propagate the coloring method on newsstands world wide. The latest streaking session comes courtesy of hairstylist Jean Luc Amarin in this month’s issue of Vogue Taiwan. Rather than go for full-on blocks of pastel lavenders, deep reds, and aquas, Amarin opted for sporadic bursts of color that vary in width and length so the rainbow accents are more of a surprise, rather than an in-your-face statement. Will the style will persist into 2012? All signs point to yes—make that yellow.
