Upgrade Your Braids With Hair Piercing

Hair is the perfect medium to express your own personality – and we know our clientele in search of the best hair stylist York has to offer often want a look that helps them stand out from the crowd. Of course, hair is only a semi-permanent transformation, meaning you can experiment with it time and time again, unlike body art or piercings.

However, if you love the look of body jewellery but want none of the commitment, this summer’s hair trend might be perfect for you. Hair piercing, as the trend has been dubbed, doesn’t require you to get anything pierced, but works metal jewellery into braids for a variety of looks.

From the pioneers of the trend, we see the look going one of two ways. Having had its roots on the runway for the Spring/Summer 2016 collections last year, it can undoubtedly channel a high fashion look – giving braided hairstyles details which elevate them to the next level. For this look, choose plainer loops and studs, weaving them into messy plaits as you go.

However, for something a bit more fun, the hair piercing trends has the ability to embrace the 90s trend that’s hit the festival circuit in a big way this year. Spearheaded by the beauty bloggers, these looks see cute, novelty hoops interwoven in more intricate braids, and could even be finished with a touch of spray glitter for the full 1990s teenager effect.
