With the magical powers of colorful hair dyes, you can turn your roots into a rainbow, your straight hair into Super Mario, or your pixie into a work of art. The latest hair color trend blowing up Instagram involves something a little more wild. With leopard print hair, colorists are helping bring the iconic print to buzz cuts and undercuts. Yup, leopard-print is officially a thing again. (Remember when the Kardashians went hand-in-hand with it? #tbt.)
With '90s trends like chokers and lip gloss coming back around in a big way, it was only a matter of time before Dennis Rodman's leopard-print hair was back in our lives again, too. (We almost forgot about that look, too — almost.) Colorists have been painting brown and black hair dyes directly onto platinum-blonde buzz cuts with artist-like precision. You can see the process in action at Sassoon Academy, which is based in London, here.
The leopard print hair trend was hard to ignore once Bleach London caught on. The cult-favorite salon in the U.K. helped popularize rainbow hair trends like blorange. Hairstylist Erik Pascarelli created the leopard look below. He told Marieclaire.com that you can try the trend at home without bleaching or buzzing your hair. Instead, you can use a leopard-print stencil and some colored hairspray. The Bumble and bumble A Tint of Brown and Black Hair Powders work, too.
Some people have even take a more colorful, Lisa Frank-like approach to leopard print hair.
No matter which color scheme suits you, this leopard print hair trend is definitely one that is sure to make a statement on your Instagram feed.
