The hair trend involves a mixture of grey, silver and pale pink strands, which combine to create the glimmering effect of a beautiful pearl. Not quite the season’s edgy grey hair trend and not quite blush-toned highlights, pearl hair just may be the perfect compromise.

Although this hairstyle is hardly professional for work, it can easily brighten up your music festival beauty look. With its shining strands and multitude of hues, the pearl hair trend just may be one to embrace. For those who want to experiment with opalescent colour, without taking the plunge into rainbow brights, pearlescent strands could just be for you.
