I thought I was over the pastel trend until I saw this lovely photo the other day while scrolling through my Facebook feed. For a second I couldn’t place the gorgeous face framed in a a color so soft and creamy it reminded me of frosting, then I realized it was Bella, the dark haired, vampy Hadid sister! This look is probably a temporary effect, but it amazed me to see how dramatically it changed Bella’s look, and how much I liked it. Pastel hair may turn out to be a permanent fixture in the hair color spectrum, and I think I’m okay with that.
