Trend Of The Month

Platinum Power
Platinum is easily one of this season’s hottest trends. Whether it’s sprinkled with bright pastel hues or made to accentuate a hot snip, going bright will be the hottest mane move of the season. Check out some beautiful ways to spruce up any snip with this hot hue!

1-14Buttery Blonde Hues are painted on long strands at the crown to accentuate this elongated pixie crafted by Doris Carr of DC Artistry in Richmond, VA. This look flaunts a caramel base but is detailed with shades of platinum blonde for extra pizzazz. This daring color effect will have all eyes on you!


Pink Crush explains our love affair with this beautiful pastel hue garnishing a platinum bob. Designed by Daisy Anderson of C.H.O.W Bella Hair Salon in Washington, D.C., curls are concentrated along the ends while a deep side part allows for sassy, flipped-out fringe. With color moves this striking, it’s best to keep the silhouette sleek…all the more for the mane shades to take center stage.
A White-Hot Buzz is exactly what you need to change up your coif. This style by Nickia Liggins of Nicki’s Place in Laurel, MD, brings a fresh vibe with barely there platinum color that is trimmed to perfection. With a crop this short, it’s easy to opt for a coif color this bold. Don’t you agree?



The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star/model/fashion entrepreneur Cynthia Bailey knows exactly how to attract attention—and even more so when it comes to her stunning coif. The multi-talented reality TV celebrity stuns in golden waves detailed with a precise center part and just a glimmer of platinum here and there.
