Skunk Stripes Make a Comeback

TikTok has given a resurgence to the popular mid-2000s skunk stripe hair coloring. Rather than evenly blending hair dye, or distributing it evenly throughout the hair, the skunk stripe isolates a section of hair and uses a bright color to make it heavily contrast. Typically, it’s seen on darker hair with one section dyed a lighter color (usually white or blonde). 

It’s likely making its return to the mainstream with the wave of 2000s fashion trends that are coming back in style. Recently, the high-contrast look has been seen on celebrities like Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish. Other creators have shared their own colorful renditions of the skunk-style dying, including a peek-a-boo style, where only the underside of the hair is dyed. It can also be created using colorful box braids

Fashion Industry Broadcast explains that the look is attainable without the help of a professional stylist because “unlike the balayage, you don’t require painstaking hours devoted to separate strands and blending.” 

My favorite thing about this trend is its creativity and versatility. I’ve seen it work on all hair types, and in pretty much every hairstyle. There are many unique patterns and designs to try out, and it seems like almost everyone has their own fresh take.

    Why Tanning Lotion Is Better Than

    I’m sure most people out there love being outside in the sun and getting tan. There’s nothing wrong with going outside to get some vitamin D! But if you love tanning and do it frequently, that’s when the issue starts to arise. Being outside in the sun too long or frequently, without any form of sun protection is dangerous. So if you want to get tan, the best thing for you to do is get some tanning lotion.

    Signs That Your Makeup Products Have Gone Bad

    Chances are that in your makeup drawer right now, there is no doubt at least one product that has been sitting there for at least 5 years that you still haven’t thrown out. For the higher price point of some luxury products, it makes sense that it’s harder to part with that $30 mascara after only a few months. While a lot of cosmetic items will most likely be fine to use after the expiration date, some can form bacteria more easily the longer you wait, possibly leading to infections on your skin or eyes.
