The Hair Trend You Won't Believe You'll Be Wearing in 3 Months' Time

We never thought we would say these words, but the green hair trend is a thing. While it might evoke images of your days playing with My Little Pony or your Troll dolls, if you still hanker after getting a similar look, then we have good news: It's about to be big. We've received word from Pinterest that green hair is set to be the colour trend of the summer, and a quick glance over the platform proves the point further, as pin after pin shows that this is definitely becoming popular right now, and it's not just one shade. There's everything from deep, almost teal-like colours to Stabilo highlighter fluorescent greens.

And that's all before we've told you about another massive sign that this look is about to skyrocket: Rihanna is set to debut green hair in her next music video. See what we mean?

Of course, this is all well and good for the A-list who can change their hair at a moment's notice, thanks to access to the best hairdressers in the world. But how can you do it at home? This might be stating the obvious, but the green hair trend is not for the faint-hearted. It is a real bold choice, but that's no bad thing—just make sure you really consider this change and speak to your hairdresser before reaching for the dye.

International colour ambassador Jack Howard from Paul Edmonds for L’Oréal Professionnel confirmed that green shades are "definitely on the rise," which he saw during the last few months of 2016, not to mention that Pantone’s colour of the year, Greenery, "has already been making waves in the hair world at the start of 2017."

We also asked Howard, if you do go for the trend, how to ensure your green hair looks good. "The key for a wearable green," he recommended, "is to make it look expensive—metallics and deep emeralds are the coolest shades."

Over at one of London's coolest hair colour salons, Bleach, manager Sapphire Driver revealed that they've seen an increase in requests for the green hue "varying in tones from mint to olive to emerald green" and even said that one client had brought in a picture of moss as someone’s colour reference.
