The Best Trends of 2012 - Crazy Colored Hair

Over the next week I'll be reviewing my favorite trends from the past year. First up is rainbow colored tresses. It's actually nothing new, Punks were dying their hair crazy colors 30 years ago and the grunge punks carried the torch into the 90s. Back then Manic Panic was the only dye that you could get to achieve the look and was almost always administered in your bathroom. Now candy color tresses just signify fashionable cool and most of the handi-work happens in salons, which could explain why it looks SO much better. Here are some of my favorite examples from this rad trend from the past year.

Shannon O'Brien is a super talented makeup artist and blogger here in Chicago. When I saw her that day I couldn't believe my luck with her incredible style and matching bike! (This photo was part of my style coverage on Teen Vogue)  Check out Shannon's cool blog Cheap Frills and Thrills

I ran into this little lady at Millenium Park here in Chicago over the summer. Her half black half white hair is SO cool. Even though it's not brightly hued the radical dye job is a great example of the anything goes spirit of this trend.

I love Whitney's amazing red bangs here. I caught her as she was on her way to work the Thakoon show at New York Fashion Week this past September. Check out her blog Whitney Ambition.

I caught up with Claire Van Eijk and her rad curly blue faux hawk backstage at Lollapalooza this summer. She also has a pretty amazing tumblr that you can check out here.
