It's everywhere. Ever since Dua Lipa debuted a slicked-back updo featuring face-framing chunky highlights grazing her cheeks at the 2020 Grammys, everyone and their neighbours hopped onto the bandwagon and got chunky highlights in their hair. The trend has fast-emerged as one of the most sought-after hair trends, and rightfully so. It's just so chic. And you're going to see this trend everywhere in 2022 so why not try it out for yourself?
Where have you seen this before?
This one was in vogue during the 90s. It involves dyeing a few streaks of your hair with a lighter, brighter hue to contrast the rest of your hair. And it has multiple iterations that you're going to want to experiment with.
Adoptees of the trend include Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid, and Dua Lipa sport, along with a slew of influencers and TikTok E-girls. Some style their hair with face-framing chunks like Dua, and others bleach their hairline. Much like Billie Eilish's green roots dripping down into her natural black strands. This hairline-bleaching trend comes from the iconic Spice Girls and Drew Barrymore! Yup. Goes way back. Even Bella Hadid tried this trend—but with fiery-red face-framing chunks instead of blonde streaks.
Other variations include colouring layers at the bottom of your hair a lighter shade like blonde. Basically a half-and-half application. It's such a pretty trend. And there's so much you can do with it.
How do you care for coloured hair?
Referred to as Skunk Stripe hair—because of the resemblance with the black-and-white fluffy skunk—no one look defines the style. You can draw inspiration from your favs, and play around with the look to create your version of the trend. Remember to book a touch-up appointment at the salon every six to ten weeks, and work a nourishing shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair into your regimen. The TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Combo is an ideal pick. Enriched with Moroccan argan oil, these sulphate-free and paraben-free formulas are crafted to nourish and moisturise treated hair thoroughly, and endow your tresses with a long-lasting shine.
