Sometimes the names that go along with hair color trends are just as buzzy as the colors themselves. (Honorable mentions go to tigereye, blorange, and pink champagne). The newest color trend is called rose quartz, and the dimensional shade is just as pretty as the name sounds. It's a blend of purple and pink that almost glows due to its brightness. And according to Refinery29, it comes courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Josh Wood and Austrian model Stella Lucia, who walked in Alexander Wang's spring 2018 show on Saturday.
Even though peach-colored hair has been en vogue throughout much of this year, we're calling it: Rose quartz will be the newest It-girl color to try this fall. It's a bit bolder and a bit deeper than the pastels we're used to seeing but just as fun.
Wood used a demi-permanent hair color from Redken to achieve this bold fuchsia color (after all, he is a global color creative director for the brand). "We're referencing the '90s and making it feel right now, today, here in New York," Wood said. "I've christened it 'rose quartz.'" We love how the pink and purple shades meld seamlessly together to create the perfect color melt. We can see Kylie Jenner, Ashley Benson, or Hailey Baldwin donning this new color since they've debuted similar pastel pink hair in the past.
The rest of the makeup was kept minimal and fresh, catered to complement each individual model. We love that because minimal makeup pairs well with maximalist hair color. Makeup artist Diane Kendal used Nars products, exclusively. For the complexion, she applied the Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, which hasn't actually been launched yet. (It's set for spring 2018, so until then use the Sheer Glow Foundation, $47). She then applied both the Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30) and the Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30) anywhere the models needed it.
After adding a bit of the Luster Liquid Blush ($30) to the models' cheeks, she used Matte Eye Shadow ($26) to embolden the models' brows (either shade Bali, Blondie, or Coconut Grove, depending on hair color).
