The 90s have an undeniable cult following (and rightly so, they’re iconic). That’s probably why their revival shows no sign of slowing – especially in beauty. Beyonce is bringing back french tips, Rihanna is sporting a whole head of mini buns and the make-up from HBO’s Euphoria has some serious Gwen-Stefani-at-the-1998-VMAs vibes (yep, face gems baby). Obviously, Instagram’s coolest girls are all in. The trend they’re loving? Two-tone hair (rocked by none other than [queen] Geri Halliwell).
Two-tone hair – as well as earning serious nostalgia points – looks great on all hair lengths and textures and is super playful. Go classic with blonde and brown, or mix it up with bold brights and pastels, just don’t forget a bond-strengthening treatment, like Olaplex – two-tone tends to need bleach (and we all know how damaging that can be).
Want to keep those rainbow shades looking bright? Turn down the temperature on your shower – hot water opens the hair cuticles, allowing colour to wash away more easily-, keep shampooing to a minimum (sulphate-free, of course) and apply a UV-protective spray to prevent fading in the sun.
