Ice, ice baby!

Is white hair the hair colour for 2017? Well, we already predicted that white blonde hair would be the hot (or should we say cool?) new hair colour for winter, so it’s no surprise that white hair is set to continue its take-over in the new year, too!

But since we’ve seen bleach blonde hues for the past few season’s now, you may be wondering what makes this colour trend different, right? Well, the key to nailing this look is opting for truly white tones, with an icy finish. So, if you want to know how to become a white-haired winter queen, simply scroll down and see the hair colour everyone will be running to the salon for!

In fact, at the Alexander Wang SS17 show, a handful of models had their hair bleached backstage before stepping out on the runway – now that’s what we call serious dedication to the job.
