And how to get it in just a few minutes at home.
What do the likes of Katy Perry, Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Emily Ratajkowski and Elsa Hosk have in common? Aside from names beginning with the same letter and enviable cheekbones, they’re also not afraid to experiment with their hair colours. Ranging from blue to pink and purple, dipped ends to full colour, pastel to powerhouse metallics, these stars have switched up their locks with stunning results. And thanks to these transformations, holographic hair has become the biggest hair trend for 2020.
“Holographic hair is characterized by a mixture of high-gloss multi-dimensional pastel highlights that essentially appear to change colours before your very eyes,” according to L’Oréal Paris. “The colours are expertly placed to create a 3D holographic effect throughout your mane.”
Coloured hair has had a makeover in recent years, moving from rebellious teenager to free-spirited college student to empowered adult with agency over her own look. This change in societal perception, and the ease with which we’re now able to experiment with our hair, makes trying trends all the more enticing. Plus, as we’ve all been spending more time at home in recent, more of us are trying our hand at bold, at-home colour.
