When it comes to beauty, 2017 has been the equivalent of Oprah’s big giveaway episode—surprise after surprise thrown at us—one more shocking than the next. Every other week we’ve seen a ridiculous new beauty trend going viral on Social Media and within half an hour, there have been makeup and beauty addicts showing everyone how it’s done. The same is true for the hair colour department which saw some bizarre colour obsessions skyrocket to popularity and become 2017s top hair colour trends. Here’s a roundup…
tresemme keratin smooth shampoo and conditioner

If you’re going to be trying any of these, care for your hair before you colour. We trust no one apart from the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner Range. Infused with the power of keratin, its formula drives away frizz and dryness so that your hair stays smooth and silky all day long.

 

Millennial pink

Millennial pink

Given the fact that rose quartz, another version of millennial pink, was one of the Pantone colours of 2016, we’d say it stuck around longer than we predicted. The chalky shade of pink soared to popularity this summer and was flaunted by hair colour chameleons everywhere. And just in case you thought that it was taking a final bow, actress Busy Phillips was spotted wearing the same shade earlier this week.

 

Ash balayage

Whoever thought grey hair would become a trend, right? Or the fact that greying, something we spend a lot of our energy worrying about, would actually become a popular hair colour choice in 2017? This spring, grey hair became legit thanks to the ash balayage hair colour trend.

 

Geodes

Geodes

In the past, we’ve had succulent hair colour that was inspired by flora and fauna, but seeking inspo from minerals? We never saw that coming. Alas, the geode haircolour trend was here to prove us wrong. It merged multiple hues of hair colour to create iridescent hair with dark roots. If you’re looking to experiment with something bold this season, the geode look is calling your name.

 

Smoked peach

Smoked peach

2017 has been the year when the colour peach really exploded. Lily Collins and Naomi Campbell both wore it as an eye shadow shade to the Globes earlier on in the year and by the time Coachella came around, Kylie Jenner was sporting the shade in her hair! After that of course, there was no looking back. A blend of dusty peach tones that transition from dark roots to light ends, this hair colour trend was a look every cool kid was trying out by May 2017.

 

Hidden rainbow roots

Hidden rainbow roots

While most of 2017’s hair trends have been outlandish and bright, there’s one that’s a cut above. The hidden rainbow roots trend involves dyeing the lower section of the back of the hair in all colours of the rainbow. If you’ve got nowhere to be and no one to be answerable to but a lotta guts, give this a shot!

 

Platinum blonde

Platinum blonde

Even though platinum blonde locks are evidently rooted in the 90’s, they still became a pretty big celebrity favourite this year! From Katy Perry and Kristen Stewart to Adam Levine and Olivia Wilde, many A-listers were spotted with these bleached blonde locks. Obviously, people on social media followed suit!
