Spotted on social media, a new trend of the 90s could well be making a comeback: frosted tips.
Many celebrities gave in to frosted tips hair color in the 90s and 2000s: Justin Timberlake and the NSYNCs, David Beckham, Nick Lachey, or Joshua Jackson from the Dawson series have all tried the experiment (and we still remember). But in recent years, balayage and ombre trends have taken center stage in the hair scene and have swapped out the frosted ends with coloring the lengths. However, the frosted tips trend may not have had its last word.
And for good reason, Kristen Stewart had relaunched the trend a few years ago, but still on a boyish cut. This was without counting on the many foreign hairstylists who quickly seized the trend: James Earnshaw, a British hairstylist, recently shared a snapshot of sweeping frosted tips on his Instagram account and the result is magnificent!
Former soccer player David Beckham is known for his many haircuts/hair colors. From blond to brown through the famous frosted tips, Victoria Beckham's husband has (almost) dared everything on the hair side!
In the 90s, the boy bands are at the head of the hit machine, but also of the trends level look. The whole generation has their eyes riveted on their hairstyles or their outfits. This is the case with the frosted tips trend carried by NSYNC in 1998.
In 2017, Kristen Stewart changed her beauty look, and with her boyish cut, adopted the frosted tips trend, bringing it back to the forefront at the same time.
This hair color, which was in vogue 20 years ago, consists of coloring the ends, sublimating them, while leaving the roots visible (and most often much darker), hence its name, frosted tips. One of the major differences with the trend of yesteryear is that this time around, the ladies are launching the fashion. Indeed, these gentlemen have long been the pioneers of this fashion: celebrities, boy bands, footballers have all tried this coloring also called the "hedgehog" cut. Now renamed the sweeping frosted tips, this revisited trend brought back to the center stage will overshadow classic balayage and ombre and we understand why because the result is just sublime!
