Hair color is such a powerful thing; it has the potential to change how we are perceived, and can even transform how we perceive ourselves. It is not merely coincidence that blondes are said to have more fun, that brunettes are considered earthly and natural, that redheads are thought of as a fiery breed. One of the most striking, boldest tones is white platinum blonde, and with the retro 1960s Factory Girl aesthetic back in fashion for spring, concrete silver is a vanguard way to set your personality apart from the crowd. With salon hair color technology now making it easier to go platinum from any base shade, channeling Edie Sedgewick is achievable for all.

Make sure your layers dance between all the most attractive features –– the eye line, cheeks, chin, shoulders and neck –– for a style that effortlessly adds to your natural beauty. Then it is down to what you want to do with the day to day styling –– wear it full and wavy anytime you want to feel like a fox.
