Calico Hair: The Fastest-Growing Trend Taking Over Winter (and TikTok!)

Calico Hair: The Fastest-Growing Trend Taking Over Winter (and TikTok!) - Oscar Oscar Salons

As winter chills settle in and the world turns a touch monochromatic, hair colour trends often follow suit. Think rich chocolates, auburn hues, and maybe a touch of honey blonde for a subtle winter glow. But this year, why not embrace something unexpected? Calico hair, inspired by the tri-coloured coats of beloved cats, is making a ROAR on social media and could be the perfect way to add some spice to your winter look.

From Feline Fancy to Viral Phenomenon

Remember the iconic calico hairstyles of the early 2000s? Pop icons like Jennifer Aniston and Christina Aguilera rocked the trend, making it a defining feature of the era. Now, after a period of more subtle tones, calico hair is back in fashion, captivating nostalgic fans and attracting new ones with its unique character. But this time around, it's not just a trend – it's one of the fastest-growing trains taking over the internet and TikTok!

This resurgence can be partly attributed to none other than pop icon Miley Cyrus. Cyrus graced the cover of W Magazine earlier this year with a stunning calico-inspired hairstyle. The bold mix of blonde, black, and auburn on her tresses sent shockwaves through the fashion world, igniting a frenzy of excitement and sparking countless recreations on social media. Suddenly, calico hair wasn't just a nostalgic throwback – it was a bold, fashion-forward statement that resonated with a whole new generation.

A Winter Wonderland with a Twist

While the classic calico colour palette features black, blonde, and auburn, the beauty of this trend lies in its adaptability. Forget the summery blonde of the past - our expert stylists at Oscar Oscar Salons can create a custom calico colour cocktail that perfectly complements the cooler winter tones. Think rich chocolates, fiery coppers, and even a touch of icy platinum to create a stunning, wintry wonderland on your head.
