Every time a new hair trend takes over Instagram, whether it’s balayage, unicorn or oil-slick, it always involves the heady mix of colours found on the rainbow spectrum. Then there’s celebrities like Billie Eilish and Blackpink’s Lisa who always sport amazing hues that make us want to run to the nearest salon. After all, coloured hair is a fun way to jazz up the hair and show off your personality.

Unfortunately, the reality of coloured hair is that it is a) damaging to your scalp, hair and wallet, b) fussy to maintain, c) costly to touch-up every few weeks and d) not exactly office-appropriate in Singapore.

So if you’re feeling FOMO at the prospects of not being able to rock coloured hair, don’t be. These Korean stars, from Park Min Young to Red Velvet’s Irene, prove that walking the dark-coloured hair route can be equally as fun—and without the damage of chemical processing.
