There’s a brand-new hair trend brightening up our lives and this time its inspired by crystals. Say hello to gem roots!
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
For some women, even trying out non-permanent demi colours, which can last for up to 20 washes, is too much of a commitment. Maybe you can’t wear coloured hair to work but want to try something a little far-out for a once-off special occasion. Now you don’t need to be deprived of your creative spirit. Taking its cue from the Occasional Makeup trend, there’s now something known as Occasion Hair.
First up, what is Occasional Makeup? It’s when you bust out the glitter and neon lips to really cause a stir. It’s a makeup look you would never normally wear in your everyday but is perfect for a one-time thing. Think about living out your biggest look fantasy, whether glam, wacky or somewhere in-between – and maybe even enlisting a makeup pro to achieve it.
Occasion Hair is pretty much the same thing, but for your locks. Basically, it’s a chance to personalise your hairstyle for your next big do – whether it be a music festival, your end-of-year function, a Halloween party, your birthday or that hashtag-trending influencer-packed event. Best of all, your top Occasion Hair options come with no commitment and no potential damage to your hair as they’re peroxide-free. Apply, enjoy and then wash out first time with shampoo.
Right, so you’re interested in this trend but want to know what you need? In short, you should be looking for hair makeup, which offers temporary colour and doesn’t feature the same invasive formulation as hair dye. And if you want to try out professional-standard hair makeup in South Africa, your first port of call should be your salon. Find your nearest here.
One example of salon-quality hair makeup is L’Oréal Professionnel #Colorfulhair Flash Pro Hair Make-up. The name is a mouthful, but it’s worth practicing because this range of colours – which are made up of makeup pigments – lets women of all hair colours live out their hair colour dreams with vibrant hues that wash out first time and resist transferring to clothing and skin.
Now celebrate that special day without limits to your look. The professionals have you covered.
