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.
According to PRAVANA Artistic Director Vadre Grigsby, this trend “will mean dark roots, fun, faded-color ends, and long, straight, unbothered-with hair. I can see the trend of cornrow braids tying in here for those who want to lightly relive shaved sides. Grunge back then was a mix of bohemian free-spirit with the irreverence of punk rock. Although we haven’t dove completely off the stage into the anarchy of stringy, straight texture, get ready for the lived-in look.”
Get the Look
Katy Perry's "Green Slime:"
1. Prelighten the lengths to level 9 pale yellow (deepen the base to ChromaSilk 4N with 10 volume for deposit only, if needed) shampoo, and dry the hair.
2. Mix 2 parts VIVIDS Yellow, 2 parts VIVIDS Clear, 3 parts PASTELS Mystical Mint and 3 part PASTELS Blissful Blue. Apply through the pre-lightened ends.
3. Process 20 minutes at room temperature, shampoo and style as desired.
Amber Heard's "Pastel Princess:"
Pre-lighten the lengths to level 10 without any yellow (deepen the base to ChromaSilk 4N with 10 volume for deposit only, if needed) shampoo, and dry the hair.
2. Mix 3 parts VIVIDS Pink with 1 part VIVIDS Magenta and apply this formula to the first 3 inches of light hair closest to the dark hair.
3. Next, take what is left of the mixture and add 2 parts PASTELS Pretty in Pink with 2 parts VIVIDS Clear. Apply this through the remaining lengths of the hair.
4. Process 20 minutes at room temperature, shampoo and style (or un-style in this case) as desired.
