Colour Trend - Petrol

Petrol Head

While last season was all about mermaid shades, this season’s colour has toughened up. The azure shades that we saw last year are back, but have taken on an inkier, grittier hue for Spring/Summer.


Backstage at the Fendi show, Sam McKnight gave the Hadid sisters and Kendall Jenner the show’s signature style: ‘petrol bangs.’

Chunky side fringes were tinted petrol blue and forest green, in an almost futuristic style reference that brought a touch of masculinity to the show.

The mossy green shade is actually very similar to my winning colour at L’Oreal Colour Trophy Award. While it isn’t the most wearable of shades for everyday, I predict these attention grabbing inky colours will come into their own in 2018

Think deep inky hues and rich emerald tones and you are on the right track for this colour trend to watch, 2018.....
