Animal print took quite some time to truly settle into our wardrobes. However, today the print is creeping into our day-to-day looks more and more, and is no longer considered ‘zany’. Now, animal print has officially landed in the world of hair. Thought that multi-coloured hair
was this season’s biggest trend ? Think again. Animal print is back with a bang. The trend :
Tiger-esque highlights and leopard print. These animal-themed hair dyes are mainly temporary and can bring a touch of madness to your style. Far from people mistaking you for a cat, this trend is great for those in search of a touch of originality who want to stand out from the crowd. Who can wear animal print ?
Anyone who can go without wearing their animal print sweatpants this winter ! Animal-inspired hair works well, as long as you don’t wear it with other animal printed clothing. This trend brings a touch of extravagance to a simple, casual look. Try going for a temporary colour
as there’s nothing worse than having to keep a hairstyle that you can’t work with every day. How can I wear this trend ?
First and foremost, stay away from permanent dyes
. This option is too radical and lasts too long, so avoid at all costs ! Think carefully about using makeup. It takes a lot of patience and skill, but you can use makeup to draw animal print into your hair. Hair chalk, or even mascara, will do the trick. For an evening-do, try adding clip-in printed hair extensions
. With no risk of getting this trend wrong or being left with permanent animal print dye, the extensions simply clip in and out of the hair when you want. © Pixelformula / Jean Paul Gaultier Haute-Couture Catwalk, A/W 2013-2014 © Jean Louis David
