What is skunk stripe hair?

 The Covid-19 Quarantine birthed & resurrected numerous fashion trends and the skunk stripe hairstyle was one of them. The original skunk stripe hairstyle is light blonde, white or grey stripes contrasting with dark foundational hair color like black or brown - just like a skunk! So it's fit to say that the pioneer of this hairstyle is no other than a skunk🦨, but with modern touches, stylists included different patterns and colors (like curtain skunk hair, the popular face-framing skunk hair, two-toned hair) to the style!
