Hair is one of the key beauty trends for 2012. While the Spring / Summer collections brought a sugary menu of pastel hair colours to the runway; for Autumn / Winter locks have turned to the dark side.
From Prada to Pringle Of Scotland, Jean Paul Gaultier to Haider Ackermann, designers embraced vivid hair dyes in unexpected places for high impact statements. And the best part about this trend… it can just wash out!
At Prada models wore hair extensions in contrasting colours for a sultry dip dye effect. While at Pringle Of Scotland dip dyed hair came in blue and pink. “Dip dye for many girls is like dipping your toe into the pool of hair colouring without taking the full commitment.” – Alex Brownsell, Bleach salon founder
Dip dying was then literally turned on its head at Jean Paul Gaultier, where hair was painted at the root in an assortment of intense colour – giving a chic nod to the collections grunge aesthetic.
Switching your hair colour doesn’t just mean choosing between blonde, brunette and red anymore – there are now so many more options to consider…
