Pastel hair must truly be the trend that will not die. For numerous seasons now it just seems to just have been gaining momentum. And with the collections for SS12 absolutely crammed full of candy coloured treats, this is one trend that doesn't seem to be disappearing any time soon.
In particular I'm really feeling the washed out candy floss pink which can be seen on the liked of blogger Hannah Metz and fashion photographer Lina Tesch-two girls from opposite ends of the fashion spectrum which just proves that this trend works whether you favour the rock chick look a la Lina or prefer to keep things a little more girlie like Miss Metz' vintage inspired ensembles.
The look can also be seen in several lookbooks for this season. Pink tips are how Topshop have interpreted the trend for their 'Pageant Princess' collection and several different pastel hues were applied to the models' hair in LF Stores festival inspired offerings.
Model Kori Richardson was seen with baby pink tips in her platinum locks was was Lily Donaldson on the cover of Numero Tokyo's April issue. And of course, one of my personal favourites Charlotte Free who's now infamous bubble-gum locks have arguably made her one of most sought after models of the moment, gracing numerous runways, editorials and campaigns from Vogue to Wildfox.
So what do you think? Has this trend got you reaching for your paint set? I know I'm tempted...
