Trend Alert: Ladies in their 40s, 50s and 60s Now Have the Boldest Hair

We’ve covered a number of crazy hairstyles on this blog, from Miley Cyrus’ asymmetrical platinum cut to Katy Perry’s orange locks on the cover of L’Officiel. But we definitely didn’t anticipate this new trend that’s hitting hair salons across the country. The New York Times is reporting that the bravest, edgiest hairstyles aren’t on the heads of teenagers and 20-somethings anymore—but women in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.

The Votes Are In: You’re So Over Ombre Highlights and Nail Art

Earlier this month, we revealed the results of Beauty Pulse Survey, including the trend that respondents were most excited about (beachy waves, duh). But what about the meh factor? Respondents said that they are totally over ombre highlights and nail art—the trends tied, each with 22 percent of the vote. That said, the Birchbox community is generally trend-loving, with 36 percent of respondents still psyched about all the trends we listed. If you’re ready for something new, we have suggestions for you.

Ombre Hair? That’s So 2010. This Year, It’s All About Ombre Nails

Left: Drew Barrymore in August of last year (Photo: Steeping Beauty). Right: Ombre nails (LesleyKat).

Last year Hollywood had a love affair with the grown-out ombre hair trend. Everyone from Drew Barrymore and Ashley Simpson-Wentz to Rachel Bilson and Alexa Chung sported this look on the red carpet at some point. It seems though that the enthusiasm the style has faded (get it? Ha!), but there is a new color gradation fad on the horizon: ombre nails. We first spotted one of our fave vloggers, Miss Glamourazzi, doing a how-to video during the holidays on a Nutcracker-inspired purple mani, but now it would seem that the trend is starting to really take hold. Prime example: earlier today OnSugar blogger LesleyKat posted her tips on recreating a Valentine’s Day-themed nails. Minus the hearts (Lesley, what were you thinking?), it is so pretty—and certainly no easy feat. She used four, yup four, different types of pink polish to get this effect and even a makeup sponge to help blend. Even though I am pretty adept with lacquer, I am secretly hoping Sally Hansen comes out with Salon Effects ombre polish strips so I can partake in the look with just one simple foolproof step.
