There's a new shade on the block for 2016, and boy, is it pretty. Of course, we love grey hair and salute all the badass babes who rock that look, but 'smokey lilac' is fast becoming our favourite new shade of 2016.
It's a little grey in tone, but with purpley hues mixed in. It's a little grungey, a little glam and very chic. It looks good on long hair and short hair.
It can be dark and mysterious on brunette locks, or nymph-like on blonde hair. Basically, it's seriously cool - if you needed any more convincing, take a look at these styles...

There's a dash of romance in this lilac and silver pairing, making us giddy and light-hearted. Hair design : #CENTRO_Han Face : @colbieong #centrowsalon #thegardensmall #lilachair #lilachaircolor #silverhair #silverhaircolor #lilacsilver #lilacsilverhair #nofilter
