From the edgy Fall/Winter 2014 fashion runways to Nirvana’s recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, grunge is making a comeback in a big way. Kristen Stewart traded dark locks for bright orange, Katy Perry went green, and Amber Heard is sporting a dip-dyed pink style. From the runway to the salon, colorful strands, spiked ends, and unkempt texture are more than just a passing fad.
From blue mohawks to subtle pastel ends, punk style has influenced hair trends in the music and fashion industry for decades. Demi Lovato refreshes these iconic looks by showing how incorporating color can appear spontaneous, yet casual. The singer has left her blue hue behind for a hot pink shade. Bright hair colors are becoming mainstream among celebs, and chances are some of your clients are looking to achieve similar styles. Perfect for spring, pink warms up strands and can add a creative punch to lack luster locks.
