Forget about keeping up with the Kardashians; can you keep up with celebrity hair trends? It seems every other week, there’s something new, regurgitated or completely left-field that somehow takes over our Instagram feeds and, eventually, local salons.
To be fair, women of the famous variety tend to have nearly unlimited access to hair pros that are always on the cusp of what’s new or coming down the pipeline. As a result, they become the guinea pigs — very good ones, may we add — for not only testing out trends, but introducing them to the masses and giving them that must-try appeal. And come winter, the color that always seems to gain traction is black.
No, not brown-black. We’re talking jet black, the kind that looks otherworldly against richer skin tones and fairer complexions alike. We’re talking about the hair shade that contrasts better than most others against bright clothing. Oftentimes, though, there’s a lot of trepidation about turning to the dark side due to worry it’ll make you look as though you’re wearing a Halloween wig.
Whenever hesitation threatens to keep us from trying something new, we get lost in inspiration IRL and on the interwebs. So here, we’ve gathered a sampling of A-listers of different skin tones and hair textures who have kept the black hair trend alive. From Laura Prepon’s raven bob to Zoë Kravitz’s box braids, we have a feeling these hair chameleons will have you more than ready to dip into the dye.
