"Nordic White" hair is the latest trend to get the internet talking. As we go through increasingly rapid fashion fads, it can feel hard to keep up. But this one seems to be part of a bigger celebrity trend in which everyone is going lighter with their hair.
Is the Nordic White really a new and unique color, though? We have a feeling we know where the inspiration came from! Read to the end to find out who it was that we think really inspired this new color trend.
Hair color has always been something that people seem to feel pretty comfortable experimenting with.
via: GettyThere are few things that we can change about our appearance without surgery or overhauling our closets and by far the easiest thing to change is our hair. From wacky haircuts to bold colors, people out there have tried it all. And no one seems to change their hair as much as celebrities. Do you remember that time when Miley Cyrus went blue? Wait until you see her latest haircut. It'll certainly give you flashbacks to another time!
Sometimes hairstyles don't age well.
via: GettyThere was a time when, inexplicably, a bunch of white people decided that they wanted to have corn-rows. Back then people weren't as aware of cultural appropriation as we are today. It's hard to imagine Justin Timberlake doing this with his hair nowadays.
Some hairstyles were never good to begin with.
Sometimes celebrities make questionable fashion decisions.David Beckham is often at the forefront of men's fashion and he has a long history of memorable styles. Some have been on-point, others have definitely missed the mark. Most of them he doesn't regret, but he has said that he regrets the matching purple outfits that he and Victoria wore on their wedding day. Yikes.
Sometimes fashion is ahead of its time.
20 years ago David Beckham wore a sarong. The uproar around a man wearing a feminine piece of clothing seems so rid… https://t.co/k1Hk7GCF0o— Gordon Spierin (@Gordon Spierin)1532029187.0
He was also one of the first promoters of the blond 'do.

Do you feel like you've seen it somewhere before?These hairdressers might think that Nordic White is a new trend, but we have certainly seen it a few times before... Infamously, Gandalf came back from his fight with the balrog with a new color-scheme on the go. Maybe he also felt like he needed to freshen up for spring!
There are many who might argue that it is not a new color at all.
Grandmothers everywhere have been sporting this 'Nordic White' look for centuries. It probably seems crazy to them that people are paying hundreds of dollars to dye their hair the same color as their grandparents! It shows how silly it is for anyone to feel like they need to cover up their true hair color as they get older. They should just call it 'Nordic White' and pretend they're trendy instead.
It seems obvious where the true inspiration has come from for this new hair colour, though.
It seems clear that the real reason why people are going for the Nordic White is to try to emulate the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. With two weeks to go until the new season starts, there will surely be more and more people trying to emulate this beautiful lady's locks. We're in!
