Reveal Your Villain Side with Skunk Hair
We’ve seen some very interesting hair trends take over in 2021 and 2022 so far. The wolfcut has made a comeback, claw clips, feathered hair, and many popular early 2000s styles. People have started shying away from more natural shades in favor of hues that pop. Curtain bangs and money piece highlights are everywhere. Still, there’s always that one trend that really surprises us. And that would be the skunk hair trend.
Skunk hair is a vibrant color-blocking of light and dark butting right up against each other. We’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the trend, including playful and celeb-approved inspiration.
Below, find our favorite ways to wear skunk hair color.
Dua Lipa’s take on the skunk hair trend is still one of our favorites. She looks edgy and elegant at the same time, which isn’t an easy feat. The chunky highlights with the contrasting dark and light shades will give you that drama you’re looking for with this trend.
Cruella de Vil
Miley Cyrus has skunk hair now – but, like, in a cool way. Her skunk hair has a black base with pops of white throughout. Miley Cyrus’s take on the trend does the opposite. Her perfectly placed pops of black throughout her bleach blonde mane are giving us Cruella de Vil vibes. So, is there any out-there beauty trend that Miley Cyrus can’t pull off?! We think not. We absolutely love it.
This is the more common take on the skunk hair trend, where large panels of white and black highlights contrast. If you trust yourself with bleach, you’re more than able to recreate this look on your own. We recommend getting help from a stylist just to be safe. Book us!
Solid Face Frame
For those who aren’t ready for the style above, bleaching layers in the front will do. And yes, this still qualifies as the skunk hair trend. The beauty of this hair color is that it’s what you make it. There’s no one way to rock this look.
Peek-A-Boo! Keep the underneath of your hair icy and go dark on the top to pull off this take on the trend. Hiding the color beneath is rather easy to do. Plus, if you want to dye it all one color, that option is always available.
The bold color statement of this Cruella-esque inspiration is subtle in its approach, with only the shortest of face-framing layers in the front as a juxtaposed tone to its base color. It’s low maintenance, cool and edgy, to begin with, so you make the rules. With the skunk hair color trend, less color may mean less maintenance, but it certainly doesn’t skimp on impact.
