LEADING THE WAY: Dua Lipa and Hilary Duff have both gone for bright colours

If anything positive is to come out of lockdown other than plummeting Covid-19 rates, it has to be the new trend for bright rainbow-coloured hair.

It's a joy to see more people embracing the fun of adding a dash of crazy colour to their mane - I'm talking lime greens, yellows, bright flashes of orange as well as violets and pinks.

Celebrities have once again led the way with social media influencers and fashion bloggers following closely in their wake.

In the past few months, Dua Lipa has dyed her hair in many wonderful shades while Hilary Duff has been seen sporting a bright neon teal.

Pixie Geldof went even further by dying her front parting green and the back bright pink, while Katy Perry embraced orange hair and Lizzo switched to a casual emerald green.

These edgy, dramatic changes are not exclusive to the young and bold but older women too are embracing multiple hues.

Women who let their grey grow out during lockdown are now reaching for pinks, violets and aqua blues to add an extra dimension to their style.

I know one lady who recently celebrated her 90th birthday with a bright candy floss pink hairstyle which looked absolutely gorgeous.

It is a bit of fun and I am delighted that many of my clients have embraced it. One lady recently rocked a wonderful fiery red root with bright yellow ends.

If you don't have the confidence for a permanent colour change but want to experiment, there is a great range of bright wash in/wash out colours available in Boots from Bleach London.

LEADING THE WAY: Dua Lipa and Hilary Duff have both gone for bright colours

 

For those not brave enough to take this step, you can always try a wig - another big trend setter in 2020.

Ever wondered how Kim Kardashian can change her style, colour and length of hair so quickly? Her secret is good quality wigs.

Kylie Jenner is another influencer who has also been using hair pieces to switch her style from dark to blonde.

Instagram is full of bloggers using wigs for an instant new look.

The quality of synthetic wigs has come a long way in recent years and they are now readily available at affordable prices on the high street.

This year they have become a big fashion accessory and a bit of game changer in the hair world as they can be bought in a variety of styles and colours.

As well as instantly changing your look and making a statement, both new trends allow for a little lightness and fun and let's face it, we can certainly all do with that right now.
