Trend Of The Moment
Platinum Blonde
Dare to stand out with platinum blonde tresses that are sure to turn heads as you walk by.

Demand attention with this cropped style that’s beyond beautiful. Longer strands at the crown are swept upward into a Mohawk-inspired silhouette while shorter lengths on the sides add gorgeous definition.  
BRILLIANT BEAUTY Go bold with a gorgeous pixie cut this season! The full fringe is swept to the right, adding movement to the profile. Snipped sides give the look extra dimension for a style that fiercely fashionable.
SHEAR PERFECTION All eyes will be on you with this platinum ‘do infused with body and shine. Tresses are snipped just below the ear with a bowl cut silhouette and smoothed over giving this look a chic twist on a classic cut.  



Singer Goapele has emerged with a new look and new music that we can’t get enough of! The Strong As Glass songstress’ cropped ‘do shaded with a platinum blonde is utterly breathtaking and she owns this look with confidence. While she’s made a drastic change from her lengthy locs, we adore her short Natural that highlights her beautiful features.
