HIGH-END BLEND TREND – BLEED DYES ARE BACK IN!

Bleed dyes have a bad reputation: it’s associated with dye jobs that have been left to fade, or with the do-it-yourself dip dyes we all loved. But now salons have smartened up the trend, and ushered in a new era of bleed dyes: the “high-end bleed”.

This is a pretty flexible hair trend. Colour bleed hair can be done in neon or pastel (perfect for festivals), natural colours (great for work), or a mix of out-there and natural (excellent for anywhere!).

TEMPORARY TATTOOS – THE THROWBACK TREND OF 2018

Is it silly how excited we are that temporary tattoos are back in fashion? Maybe… but who cares! We’re being thrown right back to the 90s and we love it.

Temporary Tattoos

The temporary tattoos trend has been gaining momentum this year ever since Dior sent models down the catwalk with sophisticated tattoo transfers. We also saw tiny, monochrome designs worn on fashionistas’ necks and ankles. We saw tattoos mimicking watercolours, retro pin-up designs, and even realistic-looking cats and dogs (we’re not quite sure about those ones…)

SPARKLE THIS SUMMER WITH THE GEM ROOTS HAIR TREND

Pastels are growing up this summer. The unicorn, candy and mermaid hair trends are making way for more muted, subtle hair styles that look as good at an evening soiree as they do at a festival.

Our current favourite hair trend of this genre is gem roots hair, which concentrates on the roots. For this reason it will work far better with blonde or bleached hair, but if you want to experiment with this trend (using hair chalks – no risk!) on your darker hair we’d love to see the results. We’re constantly surprised by the abilities of our readers!

But, with hair chalk, you can experiment to your heart’s content, safe in the knowledge that it will wash right out. Read our FAQ for the basics, then get playing!
