Hair colour isn’t just for adults anymore.
With the school holidays upon us in most states, “unicorn hair” has been popping up on kids all over social media.
And if you’re feeling a little confused by this latest hair trend, mummy blogger Mel Watts, aka The Modern Mumma, is here to explain.
Mel shared a photo of her five-year-old daughter, Ivie, with purple streaks through her blonde hair on Instagram on Monday.
“Today we coloured her hair. She’s about as happy as a rabbit in a carrot field. She also feels like she looks like a mermaid, hence the fish lips,” she wrote.
And others are also keen to try out the trend.
“What did you use… 25 and I want mermaid hair,” commented one follower.
Mel says Ivie had been begging her to colour her hair for weeks in the lead up.
“Ivie asked me if she could have purple hair like the mermaids a few weeks back,” she told Mamamia.
“Knowing the school holidays were upon us, I decided we could do it then. By the time she goes back to school, it will have faded.”
Today we coloured her hair. She’s about as happy as a rabbit in a carrot field. She also feels like she looks like a mermaid, hence the fish lips – ????????♀️ “babe mermaids don’t have fish lips under the sea, that’s actual fish” …. ????????♀️ #nofilter her eyes are just this ridiculous in certain lights. #unicornhair no nasties ????????♀️????????♀️ – not sponsored.
