Hair Trend: Ice Blonde

The past few years have seen exciting and bold trends when it comes to hair colour. Now it’s more common than ever to see smoky grey, metallic pastels, emerald green, vivid rainbows, or even rock-inspired colours on all sorts of cuts and styles. And of course our favourite Hollywood stars are leading the charge, debuting their new looks left, right, and centre.

A great new trend we’re noticing is ice-blonde on shorter, edgier cuts. Pioneered by the likes of Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, Pink, and Jennifer Lawrence, this cool trend is heating up for spring.

Recently, Cara Delevingne arrived at Paris Fashion Week with a new bold look to add to her history of bold looks — a bright, icy blonde bob. The actress, top model, activist, spokeswoman, and new novelist (!!) has become known as a trailblazer of ‘quirky beauty’. Many attribute the re-birth of the strong brow to Cara’s naturally striking brows. And she’s kept a naturally dark brow while rocking bright-to-the-point-of-white locks.

Actress Kristen Stewart has also embraced the short, bleach-blonde look. Her platinum buzz cut is reportedly part of her portrayal for a new role, and she has dubbed the new ‘do as ‘practical’ (fair enough). The buzz cut is just the latest in the star’s ever evolving beauty; from girl-next-door fresh, to glam-Goth, and now to platinum bad ass, no one can say that she sticks to a signature look.
