trending tortoise

No, we’re not talking about a comb or a cute, slow-moving turtle. We’re talking about a trending coif color effect that deliciously blends dappled hues of caramel, chocolate and honey into a gorgeous mane mix.  A beautiful example of the trend: singer Kelly Rowland, as shown in her latest Instagram posts.

The star was spotted attending the Public School Runway Show during Fashion Week in New York on Sunday February 15th, rocking a fresh “tortoise inspired” hairstyle, that completed her chic, new look during fashion’s biggest week. Other celebrities —like Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Kendrick and Dakota Johnson—have also recently been recently spotted at premieres and events, displaying the same trend as we head into Spring. The look was an inspired creation from Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas. He collaborated with Rowland to create this modern look that’s one of the fastest-moving coif trends this season.
