Whether it’s braiding, feather extensions or hair chalking – since 2011 it seems like each summer has explored a new hit trend. What’s the beloved hair trend for 2014's festivals? According to Bleach London Salon it’s the hair tapestry.

Bleach London, a popular salon for celebs like Lily Allen, Sienna Miller and Jessie J, has offered its hair tapestry services at various outdoor events around London. Clients can get this multicolored needlework done in a variety of designs.

If you’re wanting to offer this service to your clients, you might need some weaving/needlepoint skills first. Practice on a mannequin to amp up your skills.

(There's more information coming soon about this trend from Bleach London Salon!)
