NEW SEASON HAIR: The New Dip-Dye!

Prada Autumn/winter 2012

Remember when showing your roots was considered a hair don’t? Us too. Over the past couple of years we’ve watched the dip-dye evolve from a low maintenance quirky way to let your roots grow out to a global trend gracing catwalks and high streets in a rainbow of multi-coloured tips. With  a recent autumn/winter update from the likes of Prada and Jean Paul Gaultier the beloved dip-dye doesn’t appear to be fading anytime soon.

We’re only just trimming the pastel ends off our summer dip-dye, but already it seems the POPULAR style has changed/evolved once more looking set to take on a more serious TONE/ROLE next season. Gone are the sorbet-tipped waves of summer, get ready for bold, contrasting colours on razor sharp tips.

Prada incorporated the trend into their autumn/winter shows using poker straight extensions in striking shades of orange, red and black – all beautifully complementing their wow brows. The effect was dramatic and deliberate, transforming a style that was once all about laid-back glamour and making it thoroughly high-maintenance.

Jean Paul Gaultier took the evolution of the trend even further, actually coming full circle and dying only the roots for a totally opposite, yet equally dramatic look. The reverse dip-dye brings a whole new level of commitment to the previously low maintenance style requiring both precision and upkeep – and probably upsetting your mum.
