Could marble hair be the next big hair trend?

So what makes marble hair so special? Well, marble hair can be worn on both light and dark tresses, and can be re-worked for all hair types. Additionally, most marble hair designs allow for au natural roots, so it’s pretty ideal for those of us who want a low maintenance hair colour option.

For those with dark strands, we suggest opting for a brightening marble hue, like silver, to give a shimmering finish!  Credit: @josievilay

When going for marble hair, ask for different hues to be added to your hair for the perfect marble-inspired effect.
