Pastel hair has been all the rage these past couple of years, inspiring hairdos that look like pink cotton candy and pretty pastries. But while there's probably no stopping the soft, daydream-like shades from continuing, Cara Delevingne's metallic pink hair may just make you want to go chrome for the rest of the summer.
Delevingne has been something of a bold hair chameleon this past season, doing everything from shaving her head bald for a role, to painting it silver, to rocking a peroxide blonde buzz, so it's no shocker she decided something out of the box and trendsetting again. The look debuted on her stylist's, Mara Roszak's, Instagram page, where she treated fans to a closeup of the silvery crop. Delevingne was in Mexico City for her last stop for the Valerian premiere tour, so she decided to try something memorable for the wrap. And while short hair might sometimes get a reputation for being limiting (you can't play with braids or up-dos with so little length,) Roszak wanted to set the record straight on how far from the truth that was. "Short hair is incredibly versatile," she captioned underneath the photo. "For any woman considering the chop, DO IT!" You might not be able to pile it high onto your head, but there are still so many creative things you can do with a short crop.
"Honestly, just one look at Delevingne's sparkling cotton candy hair is enough to make us tempted to reach for the scissors immediately," Allure agreed. And seeing how it's a metallic shade, it seems to shift in color depending how much light is available. "In some lights, it almost looks rose gold, and in others, a perfect combination of shimmering grey and baby pink," Allure reported.
