Trend alert: the shaved platinum haircut!

The ultimate in bold, stand-out looks, shaved platinum-colored hair is no longer a rare breed, whether on the catwalk or the sidewalk.

Women around the world are embracing the power of barely-there hair in an unforgettable shade of white blonde. Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry, Cara Delevingne and Jessie J are just a few famous examples!

Why we love the trend

This seemingly boyish buzz cut suddenly takes on a surprisingly femininity when combined with platinum blonde and, when worn with a red lip, offers a contemporary alternative to the 1950s Hollywood siren. Instead of accentuating any flaws, the cut shows off your best aspects and gives you a clean palette on which you can get truly creative with your make-up and outfit.

Cutting and coloring your hair

To keep the cut healthy and short, you'll need to visit your stylist regularly for trims. Whenever coloring, especially if you're going lighter, it's highly recommended to sit down with a professional colorist beforehand, in order to diagnose your hair type and ensure you get the best and brightest finish without damaging your hair. The Majirel High Lift in-salon collection from L'Oréal Professionnel is ideal for lightening hair to exactly the shade you want!

Keeping your color bright

Because lighter colors can dry out your hair, it's important you adopt a color-specific haircare routine, even with super short hair! The Shine Blonde Shampoo from the Serie Expert collection will ensure your color stays perfectly platinum – no brassiness, only brightness!

How to wear your platinum hair

The world is your oyster when it comes to styling. A platinum shaved look can be seriously powerful when worn with an all-black outfit, red lips and smoky eyes, for example. Alternatively, you can play with urban trends and go for a nineties-inspired look with plastic, neon accessories and a cute cropped top worn under denim dungarees.
