Navy Hair: Summer’s Unexpected Beauty Trend

Come summer time we’re typically waving goodbye to dark shades and embracing light and bright hair colours. – just like Lea Michele.

But in an unexpected twist on the more colourful summer norm, there’s a whole load of beauty lovers opting for navy coloured hair instead!

The super sleek take on not-quite-black hair first caught our eye a few months back, when Kylie Jenner –who else? – donned a gorgeous new navy wig at an event.

So if you made the decision to go black or dark brown for winter and have been frantically trying to figure out just how to lighten up for summer – a few of us in the office are exactly in that position right now – go navy.

It’s the ideal way to update your locks without spending an arm and a leg getting bleached in the salon, as well as an easy way to preserve the condition of your hair.

Beauty YouTubers Amanda Ensing and Kirsten Leanne* slay * the trend by weaving subtle blue tones through their luscious black locks.
