    Pink, green and/or blue hair is no longer restricted to the punk scene. Wear pink hair and the worst you will be called is 'trendy'. This young Icelandic woman shows style in spades. Her pinkish hair is also styled with two 1950s side quiffs. Her lips and blouse also sparkle in light red tones and smartly complete the pretty picture

As early as 2009, the French model Patrick Petitjean reintroduced this look in a campaign for the H&M fashion store chain. Meanwhile, more and more men decide to let their beards grow.

    Iceland's women do not all dip & dye their hair pink; way up north, the classical styles with long hair and fringes are also very respectable. The woman in our photo shows the more demure version of dip-dyed ombre hair with the hair darker near the roots and lighter near the ends

    This spring, the shoulder-length bob wins the prize for most beloved hair style. This Iceland woman has casually pushed her hair back showing that bleach-blonde hair does not necessarily call for techno styles and 1990s hairdos
