Trends change every season but when a trend stays around for a while, you know its more than just a passing fad. Hair Color is one example of a trend that has transcended time is now a multi-billion dollar industry! Gone are the days when home-made hair dyes were used for the sole purpose of covering grey hair to appear more youthful. Coloring Hair is now a style statement that helps express one individuality just like clothing or makeup!
Throughout history, hair color has been given much importance because of the meanings attached to certain hair colors. But perceptions around a certain hair color have changed with time and era. For example, red hair was considered a sign of witchcraft in the Dark Ages but later, Queen Elizabeth‘s auburn hair became a symbol of her royal status and rank. Following her example, countless women across Europe tinted their hair red or wore a red wig! Such trends can also be seen in today’s times though celebrities have replaced royals as the trendsetters. Marilyn Monroe gave new meaning to the term blonde bombshell and her signature blonde hair do has inspired generations across Hollywood and the world.
Fast forward to today, Rihanna’s fiery red hair color, Jennifer Aniston’s highlighted blonde locks, Jennifer Lopez’s honey highlights, Julia Roberts’s dark auburn hair, Kim Kardashian’s glossy black waves – these are a just a few examples of iconic celebrity hair colors that have become trends. So many of the biggest divas of our time are seen sporting these trends on Get The Look (read more here). With these examples one thing is clear – there may be a different color in vogue in a given season but coloring hair is forever trendy!
[note color=”#FFE4C4″]For me, changing hair color is a great way to stay fashionable and try out new looks. We try out new styles in clothing and makeup, why not experiment with hair too? With the evolution of hair coloring ingredients and techniques, hair coloring has become less damaging to the hair fiber than it used to be. With several options available today in the form of permanent, demi-permanent, semi-permanent and temporary hair colors, this is the best time to Say Yes to Color!
