Surprising New Beauty Trends You Havent Heard Of

In the world of beauty and fashion, trends come and go. A few seasons ago the flash tattoo, rainbow hair and chic nail art were all the rage. A new makeup trend or a grooming style can start out on a fashion runway or become popularized when a celebrity is snapped wearing it.

If it’s featured on the pages of Cosmo or Elle you can be sure it’s become a trend. And you can bet that as soon as Rihanna or Kim Kardashian are spotted in public with a new look, that look will soon be the requested in every beauty salon.

Some looks such as blue eye makeup, dark lips or bronze shadow can look good matched with the right accessories, while other looks are so far out there that only the bravest of fashionistas will try them. Here are some of the latest beauty trends that you may not have heard of:

Plopping

Women with naturally curly hair should start with freshly washed hair

A t-shirt is laid flat and the hair flipped onto it with the sleeves then tied together

When the hair is dry, the curls are smooth and full of bounce

Clown Contouring

Popularized by the Kardashians, contouring is a method of highlighting and shadowing

Clown contouring is a more dramatic version, using bright pinks and reds

Blending so many colors is not easy, and maybe it’s best to leave it to the experts

Baking

Baking is a new method which helps concealer stay in place

Under-eye concealer is applied and translucent powder is dusted over it

The powder is left to ‘bake’ for 10 to 30 minutes and is then brushed off

Duck-Feet Nails

Inspired by the webbed feet of ducks, this nail trend has proved divisive

Some manicurists have refused to serve customers who wanted to have it done

Jersey shore star Snooki has been spotted with the flared finger nail tips

Glunge

This look is a combination of glamour and grunge

The trend involves teaming up messy bed hair with a made-up face or styled hair with a grungy outfit

Rita Ora and Khloe Kardashian are fans of the style

Dyed Underarm Hair

Julia Roberts arrived at the premiere of Notting Hill in 1999 with visible underarm hair

The trend has returned, with celebrities dying their unshaven pits bright colors

Miley Cyrus recently debuted her pink underarm hair on Instagram

Bleached Brows

While most women try to darken their brows, a new trend has emerged

Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have been pictured sporting bleached brows

The effect is dramatic and some might say unflattering to the face
