Dip-dyed hair doesn’t seem to be dying down!Fashion & LifestyleTips & How-tos
Last year, we saw the likes of Nikki Minaj sporting rainbow-coloured hair. She achieved the bold look by dip-dying her locks in an array of colours; yet, although we’re not all as brave as Miss Minaj, the trend for ombré locks doesn’t seem to be fading out.
Jessie J made her mark; recently spotted wearing new sleek tresses with honey-blonde tipped extensions, a big change from her trademark black bob.
Gabriella Ellis from Made in Chelsea stepped out on the red carpet, wearing her super-long mane, dipped in bold, vibrant rainbow shades. Dakota Fanning is wearing hers in a more conservative manner; choosing subtle, darker roots and honey tips against the rest of her platinum-blonde hair.
Salma Hayek stayed away from the bold neon brights and stuck with warm golden-brown tips in contrast to her darker roots, which compliments her olive complexion and dark features perfectly.
Fashionista and muse Alexa Chung also opted for the subtle version of the trend with slightly lighter ends.
To get the look, it’s best to consult a professional colourist and stylist, as you could end up looking like you’ve been tie-dyed, rather than dip-dyed. If you’d prefer something less permanent, there are tips online on how to achieve the look using food dye! However, this won’t work so well if you have dark hair and are trying to go blonde. Another less permanent and less damaging alternative is to use hair extensions, you can get some great clip ins now for as little as £5.99; Sleek have a vast selection, available in Superdrug stores and online.
