My fellow TGBDer Andrea is right—raven is the It shade in hair color right now. In fact, after I read her fabulous trend story, I started noticing that jet-black locks are pretty much everywhere in Hollywood at the moment. But more on that in a second. For now, let’s go over why this trend is so darn popular. And we can use the first two lovelies Andrea spotted the trend on, Demi Moore (right) and Courteney Cox (left), as examples:

As you can see here, this rich hue is incredibly shiny, makes creamy skin look even creamier and provides the perfect backdrop to make eyes really pop.

But it’s hard to not love onyx locks on these two, right? Well, I’d like to submit as evidence that this trend has legs two more gorgeous gals who are rocking black hair.

  1. There’s singer Katy Perry, whose dark locks give her a little edge.

And 2) Vanessa Hudgens, whose raven locks have been looking a bit more intense lately—and really, really pretty.
