A stunning example of platinum blonde done right

Previously on this blog, we mentioned that platinum blonde has already been tapped as the must-have hair coloring of 2014. However, we also noted that a brighter shade may actually do more harm than good for certain complexions, especially if you hope your hair coloring will give you a more youthful look. To help clarify this issue, we wanted to share a few examples of platinum blonde done right, as showcased by the beauty experts at Harper's Bazaar. 

It wasn't until Anne Hathaway shed her long locks for her role as Fantine in 2012's "Les Miserables" that the starlet truly made a name for herself in terms of style. Her pixie cut was widely touted as one of the must-have cuts of 2013, and she took the look one step further when she appeared at the Met Gala back in May. It was this daring platinum blonde dye job that Harper's Bazaar has dubbed one of the top celebrity hair colors of 2014.

"Her playful pixie cut looked piecey and edgy tonight, giving off a fierce vibe that corresponded perfectly with the [punk] theme, but we still can't get over the shocking change in hair color," E Online wrote of the look. "Her dramatically lightened locks added exceptional interest to her gorgeous features, with major emphasis given to her smoky eye makeup."

Harper's Bazaar celebrated the cut and color for being a perfect combination of femininity and edge. However, for a look this out-there, you definitely have to trust your stylist!
