In the past, hairstyles of the colorful variety were often reserved for the Shenenehs, punk rockers, and Lil’ Kim. Today, it seems that that everyone is getting in on the action. From Nicki Minaj to Willow Smith, hair colors inspired by Crayola are no longer taboo. Although most of these styles don’t transition well into the office — or most conservative places — it’s fun to see hairstyles fit for an Atlanta hair show move into the everyday.

Some would argue that this the over the top trend is ghetto, coming straight out of the hood. Others would say it’s punk, daring, and for a rebel at heart. We honestly like the change in pace. It’s a nice break from the obvious wind blown, blond waves.

While, you may not have the freedom to start rocking a pink bob or leopard print bang, it can be fun to simplify this trend by add a single colorful streak to your mane.

Would you rock a brightly colored coif?

    unfortunately people only use the word “ghetto” when its a black person that does it. when its white,asian,or hispanic people with wildly colored hair then its “Creative” and “cute” but when black people do it then its on “ghetto hot mess” SMH
