Bold, techno hair colour is officially here to stay.

“I was always the girl who dreamed of colouring her hair a bold (maybe pastel?) hue, but lacked the confidence to do so,” says writer Charmaine Simmons. Black girls are always told that we should only wear very specific hair colours that are “flattering” to our skin tone, as though being black in and of itself limits us to the most basic shades. The truth? We can dye our hair whatever colour we want to.”
