We’re guessing you’ve probably heard about Pokémon Go, the latest tech app taking the gaming world by storm. Taking place in the real world, users are encouraged to explore their city and catch new Pokémon (sounds unreal, right?).
The Pokémon comeback has been so popular that we’ve even seen a fun new hair trend emerge: Pokémon-inspired hair (yep, it’s really a thing). Discover our fave Pokémon Go-inspired hairstyles below!
Pokémon Go-inspired hairstyles
Pikachu, I choose you!
The game’s most popular Pokémon is arguably Pikachu (you know, the cute-looking, yellow creature with long ears). Now, when we imagine Pikachu in hair-form, we think electric yellow strands, and this Instagrammer seems to agree.
This picture of bold yellow ombre hue that’s reminiscent of the Pokémon creature, but instead of long, pointy ears, she’s opted for two pretty half-up, half-down Dutch braids! Cute, right? Credit: @chitabeseau
Grass creature Bulbasaur is renowned for his blue-green appearance. And what better way to ooze Bulbasaur vibes than opting for a striking blue-to-green ombre mane?
The gorgeous, flowing waves work perfectly with the bold combination of colours, and really mimic the movement of grass. Clever, huh? Credit: @hair-princess-steph
Poké ball headband
If you want to prove your love to Pokémon, but you’re not quite willing to dye your tresses, then opt for a simple Poké Ball-inspired headband.
Fire and water type
Can’t decide whether you prefer the fire or water type Pokémon? Don’t fret: you can show your dedication to both with this quirky hairstyle.
This Instagrammer clearly couldn’t decide which Pokémon to choose so she went with the only logical decision: two-tone hair. Featuring a mixture of orange and yellow hues through the top, and contrasted by cool aquatic blues at the bottom, this style nods to both Water- and Fire-type Pokémon! Credit: @brooklynp10hair
Editor’s tip: Maintain the vibrancy of your gaming-inspire hair by using a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for colour-treated hair, like theTRESemmé Colour Revitalise Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner.
