head shot of Cara Delevingne with silver pixie cut at valerian and the city of a thousand planets

Cara Delevingne just gave her crop a glittery makeover and it looks unreal!

According to Cara, glitter ombre is the trend for short-haired ladies to try this summer!  

Since joining the ever-growing buzzcut crew, British model and actress Cara Delevingne has been serving up a stunning array of #shorthairinspo. Just a few days ago, she was spotted with metallic flecks in her mane, but now she’s gone one step further and created a new magical hair trend altogether: glitter ombre!

Just like glitter roots, this dreamy trend incorporates tonnes of glitter in it, but it’s only done on the ends of the hair (hence the ombre reference!). This new way to rock some sparkles looks unreal on shorter locks and trust us: when you get a glimpse of Cara’s new ‘do, you won’t be able to look away.

Cara Delevingne just made glitter ombre a trend


For the Parisian premiere of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Cara rocked up to the red carpet with this bold, glittering look. Seeing as she has a starring role in the film, she clearly wanted to channel out-of-this-world vibes with this sparkly, space-esque ‘do!

As you can see, the model’s pearly-silver pixie cut has been kept playfully textured at the top, while the ends of her hair have been dusted with green and gold glitter, for a faux ombre effect. Genius, right?

The model’s no stranger to fashion-forward looks (we still can’t get over her Met Gala mane!) and we’re sure you’ll agree she’s slaying the beauty game with her shorter locks. Thanks for showing us versatile a pixie cut can be, Cara!

Editor’s tip: Feeling green with glitter envy? Just get your hands on the VO5 Classic Styling Mega Hold Gel Spray and run it through lower-half of your short crop, before dusting some glitter over it.

Then to set your shimmering space-babe ‘do, simply mist the Toni&Guy Finishing Spray all over your locks. And there you have it: a party-ready look that’ll ensure you shine!
