We all know that Kim K is pretty extra, but it doesn’t get much better than picking a car to match your hair. Yep, that’s right. Kim stepped out for a night out with friends donning a lime green wig and the perfect accessory to match… a lime green Lamborghini. Whilst most of us would settle for a manicure or perhaps a new bag to match our new ‘do’ Kim wrote on her Instagram story ‘Had to get a neon green lambo to match my hair.’
Kim’s alien inspired locks made their grand entrance just a week after Cardi B dyed her hair blue to match her Lamborghini (and posted an Instagram pic where she posed with Kris and Kim K) Umm.. what a coincidence, hey? The rapper’s hair stylist Cliff Vmir, believes we could have a new trend on the cards. He says ‘ Bright colours are in style right now. If you’ve got a bright car, why not?”
And Vmir’s right. Bright colours have been all the rage in recent years with celebs selecting shades from the rainbow to tinge their tresses with. Whilst some went bold with choices such as Hailey Baldwins bright blue bob others chose a more subtle approach. Nicole Richie and Sophie Turner opted for pastel highlights with Lottie Moss and Salma Hayek selecting rose gold shades.
However the No.1 choice for 2018 is green. Usually associated with snot, slime and generally all things gross, this shade has been given a new lease of life on the heads of the rich and famous. It’s not just Kim K that has been sporting the look recently star but singers Dua Lipa and SZA have both been posing with green locks on their Instagram pages. Whilst Dua Lipa went for a sea green shade SZA chose a tint very similar to Kim K and it is this neon hue that seems to be all the rage.
Neon colours have also been seen all over the catwalk for the A/W season. Prada picked the neon colour palette for their Fall 2018 show in Milan and their advertising campaign was named Neon Dream. Jeremy Scott’s models were kitted out in neon attire and wore bobbed wigs in acidic pastels.
Scott’s use of wigs is a nod to the temporary hair trend that we have been seeing recently, with stars able to change their looks at the flick of a switch. Cardi B ‘s blue barnet was quickly back to brunette in a matter of days whilst Kim posted a video to Instagram of daughter North wearing the wig used to create her look.
Kim has showcased two major hair trends with her neon lime wig but do you think of the look? Does it convey majestic mermaid or is it an acidic snot coloured disaster? Would you dye your hair neon or is a more subtle shade more your thing? Whilst you ponder, I’m off to dye my hair bright blue to match my car. Fingers crossed I can pull it off…
