Mermaid, Unicorn And Rainbow Hair: The Colour Trends That Shaped 2018
Hair Trends In 2018
Whether you’ve gone all out and lived your childhood dream of having multi-coloured princess hair or not this year, there is no denying that 2018 hair colours have been sickly sweet. From the sugar-coated cream soda hair to ice cool platinum hair, demand for colour options is rising. Us Brits are becoming more and more expressive with hair colour so we’re decided to take a look at our top three from the year so far; mermaid hair, unicorn hair and rainbow hair.
It’s not fiery red hair however that depicts mermaid hair, but rather a spectrum of deep sea blues and rich greens which when altered create an aquatic version of goldilocks. This festival-friendly hair is a winner for those who suit darker hair but pine for vivid colour and have a fly away imagination. Hair stylists have played around with mermaid hair in all manner of ways, from avoiding pre-lightening and toning darker hair to going all out with balayage pieces to allow for a wider spectrum of blue and green shades.
From one fictional creature to another, the land-lovers version of the mermaid has inspired our next trend – unicorns. So, what is unicorn hair? It’s a pastel rainbow weaved through brilliant blonde hair. A sugar coated rainbow if you will. The pastel hair trend has been huge this year and unicorn hair is a reflection of this, letting you wear yellow, blue, pink and green all at the same time. We defy you to find something cuter and we think this will appear at festivals for the next few years to come.
Rainbow Hair – Rainbow Undercut, Rainbow Fringe
The brighter, bolder unicorn is the rainbow hair trend. The happiest hair anyone can adorn, rainbow hair includes all the colours of the rainbow (unsurprisingly). However, as it is a long journey to achieve such hair royalty, this trend comes in many guises. We have seen 2018 produce variables of rainbow hair from rainbow fringes to rainbow undercuts, a lower commitment with all the fun. Salons are evolving to suit our bespoke requirements and as we are all unique, so our hair is too! So what’s next for rainbow hair? Our bets on rainbow beards.
