These days, pearls aren’t just for engagement rings — they’re also for inspiring majorly gorgeous beauty looks! Pearl hair has taken over Instagram and dominated Pinterest hairspiration boards, capturing hearts of beauty babes aiming for an under-the-sea hair hue.
The defining characteristics of this color trend are a supershiny pearlescent effect and cool, multidimensional blond tones, but otherwise the fad is very much up to individual interpretation. Just like pearls themselves range in color, this look ranges from platinum, silvery blonds with a pearly sheen to mother-of-pearl rainbow hues . . . and just like highly prized gems themselves, the color trend is friggin’ beautiful.
Kate Reid, renowned colorist and design director for Kevin Murphy’s Color.Me, told POPSUGAR that the journey to achieving truly pearlescent hair is not a quick one. “It’s a slow process to create pearliest hair well,” said Reid. “It’s a long-term commitment to have this color, not a quick fix.” In order to achieve the trend, Reid suggests bringing your stylist photos of the shades that appeal to you and discussing the process.
