Like a judiciously placed earring or signature handbag, the right hair color can make an entire lewk. Unlike your other accessories, though, your hair color is a slightly longer-term commitment. Fashion girls know the significance of a trademark shade (whether that's something bold or more natural), but unless you're one of those rare birds who actually enjoys spending every other weekend in the salon, having a fairly low-maintenance hair color is a fashion-girl priority, too.
While strategizing our hair color inspo for 2019, we couldn't help but notice that the vast majority of our favorite fashion influencers fall into one of three consistent hair color categories, each representing a different style identity. It's true: Scrolling through our Instagram feeds, we realized that there's really only a small trio of hair colors dominating the fashion crowd so far this year. Curious? Keep scrolling to see the only three hair colors fashion girls are wearing in 2019.
It makes sense that shiny, sleek, jet-black hair would be a go-to hair color for fashion girls. Just as a pair of black ankle boots goes with everything and always looks chic, so does a cascade of black strands.
Stylist María Bernad's black style is slightly shorter and more tousled—and very chic.
There are a lot of ways to go blonde, but among the fashion-girl crowd, we're seeing fewer platinum, ashy, cool tones and high-contrast ombrés, and more sunkissed, golden hues with subtle grow-out at the roots. Think California-girl Joni Mitchell '70s vibes. It's a lower-maintenance color than ice blonde, which gives it an effortlessly cool, feminine air.
Technicolor hair (we're talking everything from electric blue to magenta to orange) is fairly common in the fashion influencer world. These girls treat their hair less like a wardrobe basic and more like a statement piece—like a Susan Alexandra bag or a neon puffer.
