For a New Year Look: Painting Your Hair with Shades of the Past

Hair Styles, Waikato and HamiltonThe year 2015 was one of the best years for hair trends, especially in terms of colour. After all, there’s nothing better than painting the rainbow on your precious locks.

Old-school colour ombré experienced serious competition with other vivacious shades. 2015 is the year of the rainbow movement, as celebrities like Tyra Banks proved. It is here to stay and determined to cover locks with the ROYGBIV colours.

This year, 2016, is a new page for hair, but you can always look back at 2015’s hottest trends for a look worthy of the New Year.

Grey is the Way

When most women of age wished to hide their greying locks, women of 2015 decided that honouring the grey shade was the way to go. Despite being an unconventional look, the grey hair trend worked well on different skin tones.
The #GreyHairDontCare movement dominated 2015 with celebrities such as Rihanna and Cara Delevigne heralding the frontlines. With these women in tow, others followed the suit and decided to age their hair through grey dye.

Hair that Sells with Pastel

From aquamarine green to bright pink, bright colours were the radical choices of most women who were changing their styles. Celebrities such as Katy Perry and Kylie Jenner started the trend with their multicoloured locks that resembled the rainbow.
