Effortless Blonde – step by step

respect Henkel

Indola recently launched the beautiful and new Street Style Collection featuring not one but three brand new must-have looks for the new season. Indola’s looks explore the normcore trend, generally associated with the early 2000s when grunge met pop, and casual met elegant. Today, we share a step by step guide of the first look, the Effortless Blonde.

Effortless Blonde

Inspired by the late ’90s series “Beverly Hills 90210”, this effortless blonde look is one that works for every taste. Highlights in the long blonde hair are redefined with a modern silhouette and a classic layered shape. The colour brings soft touches of sand and neutral hues for a blonde that is effortlessly glowing. The cut has a dishevelled airy feel that complements the softness of the chosen colour palette whilst the texture gives really uncomplicated vibes with weightless ends and a soft wave. The fashion nods towards the normcore trend by teaming them with a plain kami and sneakers finished with a patterned kimono for that added feminine flair.
