Plaits are already a huge trend for 2016 with many high profile celebrities kicking off the styles we’ll all be seeing on the streets this summer. The whole Kardashian clan, Rita Ora, Jess Glynne and Katy Perry have all been rocking plaited pigtails and posting pics on Instagram for us all to envy. Time to get braiding!
Also try out this celebrity hair trend, the parting plait. The plait should sit in your parting, or over it so that the plait is the parting. Cara Delevingne took the parting plait one step further at the recent 2016 MTV Awards by wearing a tiny braid at the parting of her hair, with the plait finishing at the front of her hairline instead of the back. Sounds bizarre, but looked fabulous!
But plaits aren’t the only hair trends out there right now. This week sunny Indio, California was the best place to find all the latest hair and beauty must-try looks, as the first weekend of the Coachella festival took place. Every year the festival sets the bar for that year’s summer hair and beauty trends, and so far 2016’s festival is no exception!
Kylie Jenner switched up her hairdos faster than you can say ‘Coachella’, sporting a long coloured wig designed by TokyoStylez in rainbow coloured braids one day and then keeping the rainbow colour but in a hair down-do the next. With a Louis Vuitton scarf tied around her head, finishing off the casual street-style look perfectly.
The bang on trend Kardashian also launched her Coachella-themed Kylie Cosmetics lip colour range, Instagramming pics of three metallic lipstick shades. The names of the range are an apt homage to her mighty celeb status: Reign, named after her gorgeous nephew - copper coloured, King which is gold and Heir, a rose tinted gold.
Taylor Swift showed us why we all want to emulate her chameleon-like ability to try a new look, completely transform her style and totally smash it! Her Instagram post with the caption ‘Bleachella’ wowed us all on Friday when she snapped a pic of her ‘hella’ bleached blonde hair.
Kendall Jenner proved to us all that you can wear glitter on your hair and not look like you have a bad case of dandruff! The glitter added the right amount of sparkle to her messy buns updo. She nailed it!
Katy Perry showed off her new lip range Katy Kat Matte Lipstick, with a pic of her pretty pink pout saying it all.
Bella Thorne took to Instagram to share her successful attempt at glitter eyebrows. It seems that the trick to rock this look right is to apply the glitter below the brow rather than on it. Noted!
And that all happened in the first weekend! Phew! Round two this weekend. We’ll all be watching and waiting for our favourite stars to start sharing their pics so we can copy their style!
