Colorblock Hair


In the late 1970’s, my mom was all the rage. Not only was she prom queen, she had an older, handsome boyfriend (ahem, my father!) who drove a sweet sports car. I’m not sure if this is true or not, but I even heard rumors of her walking through her strict Catholic high school donning five-inch platform wedges with his name in glitter written down the side. Scary as that may be, that’s what you call a statement!

Anyways, I’m almost 100%-sure that my mother is the reason I’m obsessed with all things beauty – hair, makeup, and nail polish. Her and her friend Bonnie used to apply coats of mascara and separate each lash with a safety pin for hours before going out, after all. Did I mention I was typically the hair and makeup guinea pig at the cosmetology school she taught at in the early-90s?! But I digress.

I recently found this picture of my mom at prom and figured, why not share it with the world? You’re welcome, Mom!

My mom in 1978... check out that two-tone hair!

Not only am I in love with her dress, but also check out that brunette and blonde colorblock hair!! Ombre, two-tone, colorblock, whatever the term may be, I love the contrast of the colors and I think this hair trend is perfect for fall. Here are a few celebs (oh, and me and Laur!) trying out the colorblock hair trend. Enjoy!

Michelle Phillips from Mamas & the Papas - Old school, but I LOVE the colorblock look with several shades of blonde!
