How many Madonnas are there? In the figurative sense, one. Now, if it comes to moments and looks throughout history, the pop diva accumulates hundreds of versions that respond to each era and moment. It is known: Madonna, in addition to being a singer, is a clear style influencer.

And when it comes to her hair, she has worn it in every possible way. Now, the artist who has the ability, like few others, to unite generations with her songs, shows a new daring and irreverent aesthetic. And of course, it is a trend.

Madonna made the separation between the incisors fashionable, emphasizing it with intense lipsticks, she established bushy eyebrows and her mole on the lip was recreated by fans around the world. Now the blond of her hair has been a trademark. and it has worn in many ways: from the recreation of Marilyn Monroe’s mythical waves to the ponytail she wore in Blond Ambition World Tourin 1990.

A few days ago, in a recent publication by Anthony H. Nguyen, the pop diva’s makeup artist, she appears wearing intense makeup in which her very blonde hair predominates. Her hair appears in the post something longer than what we are used to and hairstyle with waves. However, there is something new.

The most significant change is that this time it leaves the dark roots exposed.  To bring more cohesion to the look, her eyebrows are also kept in a dark shade.  (@anthonyhnguyenmakeup)

Your regular hairdresser Andy Lecompte has designed this new look of the singer in which she shows off her sensual mermaid hair, one of the trends of the season.

This one is loaded with drama incorporating two large waves in the front area, so that the hair is detached from the face. But the most significant change is that this time leave the dark roots exposed. To bring more cohesion to the lookhis eyebrows are also kept in a dark tone.

Is this the first sign of a new emerging trend? Everything points to yes, because Madonna has not been the only one who has opted for this transgressor look.

“The creation of this technique that is the root fade that is also seen in Dua Lipa, is for, from the moment that we do the technical work, to naturalize the base"explained to Infobae the style Max Jara (@anthonyhnguyenmakeup)

“This is a trend that has to do with decontracting the artificial. Both Madonna and Dua Lipa are not blondes. The root fade, which is what is seen in their hair, helps to create a transition between natural hair, in this case the root, and blonde hair made in a technical way.. It allows that since a color is made, more empathy with the blonde is established. In the case of Madonna, she is a micro faded root, she generates youth in her hair, prevents the root from being seen free of gray hair”, she tells Infobae Max Jara, stylist, colorist, owner of Jara Taller de Pelo.

“The creation of this technique that is the root fade that is also seen in Dua Lipa, is for, from the moment that we do the technical work, to naturalize the base. I personally suggest doing an intermediate color, that is neither as dark as the client’s, nor as light as the one we are creating. So in this way, with the growth of the hair and with the passing of time, the head takes on a certain naturalness. With that fade that you do from the root, you create a color transition. That way when it comes to retouching that color, it’s much easier. There is more room to work on the lighting and in this way you make the retouching work a little longer”, adds Jara.

Dua Lipa on the same path

A few days ago we witnessed the radical change of image of Dua Lipa. The artist chose the ceremony of the grammys to announce to the world that she was going back to platinum blonde.

Dua Lipa opted for a very long hair parted in the middle and very smooth, following the style of the nineties. And, much like Madonna, she opted to reveal her dark roots coordinated with her eyebrows.
