Go pastel from head to toe(nails) - Wella and Orly help you out!

Pastel coloured hair.  It started at New York Fashion Week, as these things often do, initially with Proenza Schouler and Zac Posen Spring 2010 shows and really caught on at Cynthia Rowley's Fall 2010 show when Wella master colourist Eva Scrivo created the coloured extensions for Cynthia.  The designer loved it so much that she went back to Eva's salon and got her own hair coloured with navy streaks.  There was no stopping it after that and the celebrity crowd has gotten on the bandwagon.  Ashley Olsen, Kelly Osbourne, Drew Barrymore and Lady Gaga have embraced the trend.  You know that means it's only a matter of time before the trend catches on with us "normal"(I'm obviously discluding Christelle from this group) people.  Eva used Loleston Perfect Special Mix colours to get the colours for Cynthia Rowley's show and she has also now started selling coloured clip-in extensions customized at her salon for people with hair commitment issued.  You can find a Wella salon near you here to help you get your own pastel look.  That's probably a better idea then attempting this look yourself at home with a bottle of bleach and some food colouring...
