Where Does Leopard Print Hair Come From?

Instagram is currently being flooded with images of the supposedly new hair coloring trend. At least since the cult hair salon "Bleach" in London posted a picture of this leopard head, the wild look has been considered a fashion statement.

However, "Bleach" hairstylist Erik Pascarelli is not the inventor of this technique. Rather, as is so often the case, a look was copied from a subculture and transferred to the world of fashion. Because leopard prints have been worn in the punk scene since the 70s as a contrast to martial boots, fishnet stockings, rivets, leather, or torn jeans. There you will not only find them on tights and tops but also as a colored pattern on short-cropped hair. There, this alleged hair coloring trend has never really gone out of fashion but is part of the standard repertoire of many punks.

And even in pop culture, leopard print hair is nothing new. In the music video "Ex-Girlfriend" by No Doubt in 1999, you could admire drummer Adrian Young's leopard hair.

The leopard print is best dyed on hair that has been cropped relatively short. The motif is actually applied with a brush like on a canvas. For a classic leopard pattern, the outlines of the characteristic spots are drawn in black and then colored in with brown. Of course, as a true punk, you simply let a reasonably talented friend give you a hairstyle over a round of beers. If you prefer to put yourself in professional hands, you can also ask a hairdresser for a daring look. In particular, stylists who are known for more unusual hairstyles can certainly fulfill your wish.

If you have not already done so, your hair must first be bleached and shaved to a few millimeters, as this is the best way to paint the motif.

The coolest Leo print hairstyles

Classically, hair with a leopard print is often combined with Iros or sidecuts. The longer hair does not necessarily have to be in the same color tones, but can create a bright contrast. You can also leave a small strand at the temple for a real punk or skinhead look. However, leopard hair on the side also goes well with naturally dark hair and fashionable long bobs:

If you like an even more understated look, you can also have an undercut cut and wear the leopard pattern on the neck. This way the pattern is only visible when the hair is pinned up and can be hidden if necessary.

Achieving the leopard look on long hair is significantly more difficult as it takes more skill to brush designs onto long hair. Instead, one prefers to use individual wide extension strands that have been given the pattern beforehand.

Here's how you can try Leo Print Hair

To recreate the look at home, all you really need is one or two premixed hair colors of your choice, a bristle brush, and someone capable of painting a leopard print. Incidentally, a piece of celery can also be used as a stamp for even stains. For this, the cut-off piece of celery is dipped in dark color and pressed onto the bleached hair. In this way, many small semicircles can be formed.

If you prefer to try it out first to see if the pattern suits you, you can also use washable hair colors to spray on and a stencil.
