Colour trend alert: ‘Ice Queen’ hair
If you haven’t heard, Ice Queen hair is big news right now. What with the weather finally brightening up (please stay like this forever) this standout colour trend is back with a serious bang! If like us, you enjoy testing out a new hair colour and style (albeit with a few questionable choices along the way) then this is the trend you should definitely be trying next. Perfect for summer, this platinum look packs a serious punch and finishes off a slick tailored look just perfectly. It’s definitely one that will get you noticed!
Celebs who have been seen recently sporting this Ice Queen trend include style sensation Kendall Jenner, Kim and Khloe, Rita Ora and Gwen Stefani! Whilst the trend looks quite daunting, it’s actually easier to achieve than you might think. This Spring/Summer trend isn’t for the faint hearted and does require a little maintenance, but we’ve got your Ice Queen bible courtesy of Sally’s! Listen up fashionistas…
Step 1 – We wouldn’t recommend that you try it yourself at home, unless you’re experienced and very confident! Instead, head to a hair colourist who can talk you through the best colour for your skin tone and advise the best course of action for your hair type. The last thing you want is a hair disaster or a patchy look. Your hair stylist can also use a relevant toner on your hair to ensure you get the shade you’re after.
Step 2 – Once you’ve taken the plunge and have given yourself an Ice Queen makeover, you need to ensure that your applied colour doesn’t lose its vibrancy. Ensure its upkeep with the Maria Nila Colour Refresh in Pearl Silver (priced £16.99). This 100% vegan hair masque contains non-permanent revitalising colour pigments to intensify and refresh lacklustre hair colour. In just three minutes your hair will have an added pizazz!
Step 3 – We would also recommend the Crazy Colour Temporary hair colour in platinum (priced at £6.99) which will enhance your colour and keep your locks looking fresh. Just wash your hair as you usually would and apply whilst your hair is still damp.
Step 4 – With platinum hair, conditioning and keeping your mane moisturised is an absolute essential. The Amika Triple RX mask (priced at £34.99) works on dry or damaged hair to keep it luscious and strong with minimal breakage. Due to its highly concentrated formula and combination of Omega 7 and West African Raw Shea Butter this mask will dramatically improve the condition of your hair, soothe a dry scalp and restore any lost moisture. The mask is also free from sulphates, sodium chloride, parabens and petrochemicals and is totally safe for colour treated hair.
So what do you think of this trend? Will you be trying out the Ice Queen hair a la Kimmy K or will you be sticking to a more natural colour this summer?
