Playing With Platinum

It’s time to step out of your comfort zone! The best thing about platinum is it will instantly give your tresses that wow factor, the hue comes in tons of variations to match your skin tone and it’s a color that’ll never go out of style! Here are some stunning ways that’ll inspire you to just do it!

This retro-inspired mane is the perfect balance of vintage and modern. A trendy, warm platinum shade is saturated all over before strands are snipped into a lengthy pixie. Tresses are molded into glamorous fingerwaves throughout.
How flipping fierce is this coif? A cool toned platinum drenches the hair. The sides and back are cropped close while the fringe is left longer. Length in the front is gently curved for a femme fetal silhouette that’ll have all eyes on you.
A vivid platinum shade is the base for this style. Sides and back are cut close with an intricate negative space detail carved in. An extra hint of length is left at the crown so the shape remains feminine. Strands on top are waved slightly for a pop of texture.


Singer Jillian Harvey’s iconic mane is hairstyle goals! The Lion Babe songstress looks ready to pounce in this volume-packed coif. Defined, touchable spirals spring out in all directions to create a cloud of coils that encircle the star. As if this look wasn’t chic enough, the warm root’s effortless transition to golden-blonde is absolutely stunning.
