Kim Kardashian’s hair changes are the hair looks felt around the world, as her hair decisions tend to influence even your own salon in Australia. Having previously broken the internet with platinum blonde and pink hair looks, mere hours ago she debuted a green hair look on Instagram – fittingly captioned with a mermaid emoji – already wracking up 1.6 million likes on the photo shared to her 130 million followers.

While this look is almost definitely a wig (shots of her regular brunette look in other social media stories as well as pure common sense indicate as such) it’s still a look that will resonate with your clients and probably shift trends. The soft sea foam green hair look is a pastel dream and a hue your clients could play with a small or larger doses to stay totally on colour trend.

As tagging on the photo would suggest, the look was created by her longtime famous hairdresser Chris Appleton. It takes clear inspo from her little sister Kylie Jenner, who has been playing around with wigs and bright hues, not to mention similar pastel blues and greens, for years – affecting your salon requests in the process.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much value does a picture shared to well over 100 million people have? While this is just a temporary look, it’s an image that has captured global attention, with social media love and headlines on E! Online, Cosmopolitan and Bustle, to name just a few.

No one can get things trending like Kim, so embrace your mermaid side and accept this green hue as a new bigger part of your world.
