When Kristen Stewart stepped out with a peroxide blonde buzz cut last week, she made global headlines. But strikingly short, platinum blonde styles have been steadily growing in popularity for the past 12 months.
The first sign was on the runways – usually the domain of cookie cutter hair styles, increasingly, models with daring bright blonde buzz cuts have been sashaying down the runway, holding their unique heads high.
Hollywood has been swift to follow suit: first Jennifer Lawrence presented a so-sophisticated-it-hurts platinum blonde lob last year, then Olivia Wilde got in on the action with a drastic brunette-to-blonde cut and colour (as did Dannii Minogue), and just this week, Chloe Grace Moretz has debuted a short, white blonde style. Even our current issue cover girl Scarlett Johansson is in on the action.

Clearly, (platinum) blondes are having all the fun right now.
