We kind of love when viral hair trends take it to some strange and weird places, and the latest craze definitely fits that mould. Welcome the Leopard Hair trend (#leopardhair on Instagram) which has been slowly (but surely) introducing itself as a trending sensation and has amassed over 2000 hashtags on Instagram to prove it. The trend has since made its way to major online publications such as marie claire and Allure Magazine, cementing its international appeal.
The edgy, retro trend works on a full head of hair for those with a buzz cut (or those looking to start wearing a buzz cut) or in smaller, sometimes secret patches with undercuts. The Internet has been fond of hidden colour trends for awhile (see, Hidden Rainbow hair), and this gives them a playful, wild take on the concept. The hair must be bleached to blonde, coloured with the perfect blonde/light brunette tone, before the spots are artistically applied by the colourist.
Is this something your clients would try? Find the client that’s game enough and submit your interpretation to the ever-expanding lexicon of looks on Instagram – you never know, this unique trend could be the reason clients find your salon and eventually book a spot in your chair. Viral hair fame awaits!
