Platinum hair has been around for decades: from the bouncy curls of Marilyn Monroe to the shaggy punk rock cut that Debbie Harry rocked in her prime, this look can transform your whole image and can be worn in numerous ways as those two icons demonstrate - from elegant to edgy. It has been popping up more than usual lately for Spring 2014, with catwalk models and celebrities opting to give this dramatic hair trend a go.

If you decide to try the look, try to first obtain a sample lock of platinum hair or even use a magazine image to hold the hair colour to your face and figure out if it will suit your complexion - this is very important as platinum hair isn't for everyone and although it's striking, it is better if it looks somewhat natural with your skin tone. 

It is advisable to seek a professional if you decide to go platinum as it involves harsh bleach and other chemicals that aren't usually as simple to use as other hair dyes. However, there are an increasing number of products available on the shelves, particularly L'Oreal's  'Preference' and 'Feria' lines which cater to more extreme shades if you are planning to do it yourself.

Platinum hair requires a little more care and attention to keep it from going brassy. Purple shampoos and conditioners help maintain that snowy hair shade without it turning orange and are good investments if you want to keep the pure platinum colour in check.  A regular hair mask will also help repair any damage caused by the bleach used, which can leave hair feeling dried out or brittle. 

This may be a huge trend right now, but platinum locks are here to stay and will always look chic with the right outfit and beauty look - so enjoy your new hair and get experimenting!
