If there's ever an event to set off trends left right and centre, it would hands down have to be the Brit Awards. All those celebrities under one roof all trying to out do each other, who has the most lavish dress, the biggest jewels, the most majestic mane, all that competitions means you have to pull out your best and by best little Mix obviously thought they'd bring out the blonde bombshell tactic. I absolutely love this look for the group, it's strong, fierce, versatile and a shade that can be tweaked and toned to match a variety of different skin colours. Leigh Anne, a member of the group who tends to keep her hair the same colour braved a blonde afro wig and absolutely rocked it, sassy statment look that's fresh and light for the coming months of spring! You have perri bang on trend with the blunt bob with root stretch and both jessy and jade look stunning with their perfectly lengthy locks.
Would you go blonde this year? I reckon lil mix in blonde wigs is going to spur a few people into the possibility of trying out blonde for themselves, perhaps you're thinking of a new look for spring, out with winter and slowly starting to welcome summer. Watching lil Mix rock the blonde certainly makes me want to try a super icy, ash shade. If you too are debating wether to lighten your locks, here's a few products that are worth picking up!
