Delhiites go for platinum blonde hair, just in time for the Justin look
Aas pop star Justin Bieber scorched the stage in Mumbai last night, one group of people — Beliebers or not — must have been feeling very, very cool. Cooler than usual, that is.
The Canadian singer, whose changing hairstyles get as much attention as his music, is the torch-bearer of the current international trend of platinum blonde hair, something that with-it Delhiites have embraced.
Among other global celebrities who have been rocking the look are actor Kristen Stewart, model-actor Cara Delevingne, and singer Kary Perry. The platinum blonde shade is the lighest of all blonde hair colours — it’s extremely rare for someone to be a natural platinum blonde, which is why the icy shade is so eye-catching.
“I always say that any colour on hair is like lipstick on it and the platinum blonde hair is just the coolest trend for 2017. This is for the young and experimental lot,” says hair expert Jawed Habib. Does this icy hue suit the Indian complexion? “When you wear white trousers, any coloured T-shirt looks nice with it. Similarly, platinum blonde hair goes well with dusky complexion, too,” he replies.
“A lot of youngsters and college-goers ask for this platinum or ash shade when they visit my salon. This quirky trend has become a rage in the West,” says citybased hair and beauty expert Aashmeen Munjaal.
