Flashback Friday: Fading Back Into the Beauty Sphere
Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Michaela Bercu
The Moment: Ombré Hair Color
The Motivation: Let’s admit the obvious: We all want Jared Leto’s hair. Now that we’ve established this understanding, let’s talk about ombré—the reason we’re all head-over-heels for his perfectly tousled, shoulder-grazing locks. The look was growing in popularity for years (with Gisele Bündchen at the helm of that sun-kissed color ship), but the trend seemed to wane on the runway in favor of solid hues (like the muted tones seen at Prada for Spring 2014). But with Leto leading the charge, we’re ready to return to strands that transition from dark to light—as seen in this image of Michaela Bercu from the nineties. The best part: We won’t have to worry about spending time in the salon getting our roots touched up once the warm weather finally hits.—Tara Lamont-Djite
