Taking the coral trend by storm was Marc Jacobs, his lively take on living coral was epitomised through the vintage, pastel hair looks. Courtesy of hairstylist Guido Palau and colourist Josh Wood, the model’s hair showcased a range of sherbet styled and candyfloss inspired tones. The powdery corals were subtle yet refined examples of the trend, while the bolder buzz cuts were a statement in themselves.


See below how to take full advantage of the energy this trend transmits!


Opt for a subtle look by highlighting the tips and ends of your hair instead of going full force.


One thing for certain is that you will not be limited for choice. There are countless colour tones to choose from; peachy oranges, dusty pinks, fiery reds- take your pick!
