Art Hair 

I am sharing Van Gogh's "Starry Night" again for those who missed it, and also because I didn't originally publish any...

Posted by Ursula Goff on Saturday, 30 January 2016


Hairstylist Ursula Goff has been out here working miracles on heads of hair all over the land. Her 'Fine Art Series' sees her recreating famous pieces of art on herself and her clients and it's honestly mind-blowing. We're talking Warhol, we're talking Boticelli, we're talking *Oprah voice* MOOOOOOONEEEEEEET

This new spin on the age old classic is bigger and bolder and better than ever. You can go for a full half head for bold top knot effect, or you can opt for some super secret strips. And you WILL need sunglasses to truly appreciate some of the more outrageous Underlights lurking on Insta.  

RUN TO THE SALON: If you're looking to channel a 'Queen Elsa Goes To Coachella' vibe. 

Hair Icicles


Hair Icicles are basically the well behaved older sister of the hot mess Glitter Roots. Created by RPZL hair salon in NYC, the clip in extensions are super cheap and are bold enough to make people think you are the Ice Queen. No dye necessary. 

RUN TO THE SALON: If you're still obsessed with Beyonce's 2010 Grammy hair and if you're desperate to keep your winter aesthetic alive for Spring.

Rainbow Bangs

Rainbow Bangs, or Rainbow Fringe if you're too British to function, is Instagram's current BAE and every celebrities favourite new look. Everyone is rocking it, hairstylists are nailing it and your mum will probably be next. You can go block colour, or you can go streak... but first, you've gotta commit to those bangs!

RUN TO THE SALON: If you think you can pull this trend off better than Keke Palmer... and before Kylie Jenner gets even gets a look in, obvz.

Direct all your fan mail to Lorean Cairns of Fox & Jane Salon in NYC because this trend is BEYONDDDD. She told Seventeen Magazine that she came up with the look as a way to reinvent rainbow hair dye trends. Each colour is blurred to create a smooth block effect and hand dyed to PERFECTION.

RUN TO THE SALON: If you're ready to take your relationship with your dip dye highlights to the next level.

Watercolour Hair

Watercolour hair is a much more subtle and chilled out version of the main Rainbow hair trend. Special clear hair dye is used to act as the 'water' which creates the dreamy effect.

Denim Hair

This isn't just BLUE hair, it's multi-tonal denim hair and it's GLORIOUS. There's a shade for everyone - you want stonewashed? You got it. You want navy? Say no mo'. We're placing our bets now on who we'll see rocking this on the red carpet first. @Halsey... whaddya think?

Glow In The Dark hair was the very first trend to emerge in 2016 and it's kind of a life saver. We mean, your friends will NEVER lose you in a dark club now, will they?! This look, reminiscent of the infamous artRave Tour of 2014, can be created with various ~temporary~ hair dyes for a low price so get on it NOWWWWW.
