11 heinous beauty trends from 2016 that need to die

LONDON Another year, another never-ending supply of ghastly trends to be added to a list of things that we’d sooner forget.

This year, when people weren’t drawing unicorns on their eyes, they were matching their hair to their iPhones. They were making their fingernails look like slices of cheese, or covering them in pompoms and plants.

To the beauty bloggers of Instagram we have one question for you: Why?

Here are 11 trends that must be stopped immediately.

1. Unicorn eyeliner

Hey everyone, unicorns don’t exist. Stop drawing them on your eyes.

2. Coloured freckles

These aren’t freckles. They’re multicoloured polka dots. And, polka dots belong on dresses, not cheeks.

3. Succulent nail art

If you like nature, don’t wear it on your nails. Buy a terrarium.

4. Neck contouring

No one needs to contour her neck. It just doesn’t need it.

5. Rose gold iPhone hair

Rose gold iPhones are fine. But, matching the colour of your locks to your phone is not fine.

6. Unicorn horns

Again, unicorns are not real. Don’t turn your hair into a unicorn horn.

7. Watermelon hair

Watermelon tastes good. But, do you need to profess your appreciation for the fruit with your hair? No, you do not.

8. Pompom nails

This is highly impractical.

9. Galaxy hair

If you want to see the galaxy, just look up at the night sky. Don’t recreate it in your hair.

10. Furry nails


11. Swiss cheese nails

Cheese is for eating, not for wearing.

2017: Please do better.
