When it comes to trends, they always seem to change from one moment to the next but when we’re talking about hair, it’s an entirely different story. The hottest hues and shades are reinvented every season — updated with elegance and extravagance. This summer, some of last year’s trends have been transformed into the sleekest hairdos that leave nothing to the imagination.
Trade in your pastel hue for an acid shade or swap platinum blonde for a honey tone — there’s nothing that says ‘look at me’ quite like a bold coupe. Have you been considering a new look? We’ve picked the hottest hair colours and matched them with some of the best salons in Lan Kwai Fong.
There’s been a new hue — actually seven of them — that’s been taking over Instagram and we just can’t get enough of it. Acid coloured hair is the new thing, and it so happens to come in every shade of the rainbow. From electric blue to fiery red, this season it’s a little less ‘My Little Pony’ and a little more edgy. Having a hard time getting noticed? It doesn’t have to be for long.
