While we mere mortals spend time coordinating our tops with our bottoms or our shoes with our belts, goddess Beyoncé takes it a step further, matching her hair colour with her dress.
Bey's go-to colourist, Rita Hazan, spruced up her locks for the Met Gala, indicating that the colour of her hair was meant to accentuate the nude shades within the dress and to complement her skin tone.
"We went with the modern girl look who is blonde, bold, and edgy," Hazan said. "The dress was such an amazing moment that her hair had to be on the same level. We went really blonde with her colour to match the nudeness of the dress to tie it all together."
To achieve the look, Hazan lifted Beyoncé's colour two to three shades to a dark blonde — something you should only do under the careful eye of a professional — then applied babylights to create dimension and contrast to her hair, so it wouldn't look flat in photos. As far as tones of blonde, Hazan stayed in the natural shades to match Beyoncé's skintone.
Granted, this might not be a trend just yet — but given how quickly "surfboardt" and "I woke up like this" became pop culture mainstays, we have a feeling people all over the world will be headed to their colourist to ask for "nude colour" in the coming weeks.
