When talking about hair trends that emerged during quarantine, let’s just say that they were anything but boring and predictable. Trends like pastel hair and short hair length that rose to popularity during the lockdown and still trending hard — and for all the right reasons. Yet another statement-making hair trend that is making beauty buffs and celebs go gaga is the bleached bit look — where you bleach just a section of your hair in the front, instead of the whole shebang!
What is the bleached bits hair trend, anyway?

A quintessential Brit fashion girl hair statement, the bleached bit — also known as 'Rogue Blonde' — shot to fame after Kylie Jenner sported it. The lightened sections in front of either side of her face create a bright and pretty frame, highlighting her face beautifully. This makes it the perfect quarantine hair trend to try — a look to satisfy your need for a bold colour that you can attempt on your own!
It is also a very 90s-themed hair trend, which is already raging among the Insta-crowd right now. A softer version of chunky highlights, going rogue blonde can be a good hair makeover to replace boring quarantine locks. And since any other crazy colour will require oodles of bleaching, which should never be done on our own, this baby step will be a perfect replacement.
How to do the bleached bits hair look yourself

Step 01: Using a tail comb, create a 1 cm wide section of your hair at the front. Make sure you follow the hairline, from the front to top of the ear from both sides.
Step 02: Tie back the rest of your hair into a ponytail and apply a thin strip of vaseline to form a barrier between the pony and the separated strand.

Step 03: With your chosen bleaching agent, apply the colour from your root to tips. Use a foil to insulate the section. Leave on for not more than an hour, while constantly checking to see if the colour has turned out the way you wanted it to.
