What is the Glass Hair Trend and How to Achieve It
Glass hair is the brand new trend that’s taking over our Instagram feeds, and it seems like the celebs can’t get enough of it.
From Kim to Khloe Kardashian, Jourdan Dunn and Dua Lipa, we’ve seen this statement style pop up countless times, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t tempted to join the hype.
But before you take the scissors to your strands, let’s fill you in with all that you need to know about the glass haircut.
What is it?
Glass hair – which features no real glass – is a 60s-inspired, super sharp cut, styled to be incredibly polished, smooth and shiny. It boasts an intense colour and is so reflective that it could literally be a mirror.
Who was first to rock it?
We’re going to have to give the crown to Lucy Hale this time round, who was papped on the red carpet showcasing the trend back in summer 2018.
With that being said, it didn't take long for other A-listers and beauty bloggers to give it a go. If it's on trend, it's on Kimmy K's radar so she wasn’t too far behind.
Forget Bradley Cooper – Irina Shayk's chic and sleek hairdo stole the 2019 Oscars, with not one baby hair falling out of place.
With a jawline like Jenna Dewan's, a glass hair cut is nothing but a must - and this one might just be the sharpest of them all.
Jourdan Dunn proved that the cut can look just as gorgeous on blonde locks...
And supermodel Bella Hadid couldn't get any bolder as she paired the hairstyle with the brightest neon blazer.
How can I get glass hair?
So, the glass hair has won you over and you’re already thinking of the bomb-selfie you can post on the 'gram.
The first step is to go in with the chop. Wave goodbye to long locks and beachy waves: you’ve got to commit to the blunt-cut bob or lob.
After you've taken the plunge, it's all smooth sailing – literally. All you need to do is stock your hair cabinet with some products that pack the sleek and shine.
