Hey Hair Color Fans,
It’s week 2 of Olympic hair watch and we have spotted a soccer teams worth of Katniss inspired ‘dos!
On the track, field, floor and pool its clear that the functional but funky braid is the defining hair style of the games (Olympic, not Hunger that is!)
When it comes to color I am a big fan of Serena Williams multi-colored braids but the gold medal goes to Polish gymnast Marta Pihan Kulesza (pictured left) for painting her locks with red and white glitter, achieving a look that was both fabulous and patriotic.
Of course no round up of Olympic hair triumphs would be complete without a special mention for my new crush Japan’s Kohei Uchimura who this week won the silver medal (and my heart), topping a spectacular routine with an extremely cool do.
As London 2012 draws to a close there was an air of slight panic amongst the HCC team about how to fill our time, until we remembered that we are only a few weeks away from the new season and all the excitement that brings. I’d love to know what you think the hot trends will be this Fall – let me know on [email protected], and watch this space for a full rundown of the shades to be seen in this Autumn.
Just for Fun

Celebrity Hair Color of the Week: Poppy Montgomery
Without a Trace star Poppy Montgomery revealed her third hair color of the summer this week – definitely a girl after my own heart! She began the season as a fiery redhead before experimenting with a darker shade back in June.
Clearly torn between which look she preferred, earlier this week Poppy debuted ombre locks which combined the two to spectacular effect. The glamorous actress is living proof that when it comes to hair color, you can have it all.
Til next week,
