August’s hair transformations: The best A-list looks

Adding length to her bob length tresses, actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens recently went for a high-impact Rapunzel length finish.

But don’t get too attached to this look as the boho-queen has already moved on to an ice blonde hue, instead, which you can see right hereCredit: @vanessahudgens

Editor’s tip:  Want to recreate Vannesa’s style at home? We recommend applying a few pumps of VO5 Smoothly Does It Straightening Lotion through your locks before styling.

The heat-activated formula is so effective that it can help leave your hair perfectly straight and frizz-free for up to 3 days – jackpot!

Have you ever sat there contemplating which hair hue to try next? Instead of wasting time mulling it over, simply take your next style cue from Nicki Minaj, who went for this showstopper of a look.

With one-half of her hair in a light blonde shade, the not-so-shy rapper and singer went for a bold contrasting blue shade on the other half.

But this isn’t the first time Nicki Minaj has rocked a multi-toned hue, oh-no — see her Neopolitan-inspired hair colour, here. Credit: @nickiminaj

Any Rihanna fan will know that she is not one to mess around when it comes to her carnival appearance. With a sultry side-swept fringe and loose beachy waves, Rihanna was definitely channelling major mermaid vibes for 2017’s Crop Over Carnival. Credit: @badgirlriri

Cara Delevingne’s pink pixie

Cara attended the Valerian movie premiere (in which she, along with Rihanna, is one the main female leads) with this head-turning pink pixie.

Pairing her sweet new ‘do with a futuristic silver ensemble, this look is both cute and edgy — well, this is Cara we’re talking about, after all!

Since going for the chop, the former model has rocked a tonne of great styles (from that silver look at the Met Gala to a host of glittery styles), becoming one of our favourite short hair crushes.

We honestly struggle to keep up with Bella Thorne and her ever-changing hair colours. From multi-coloured hues to highlighter hair (no, that’s not a typo), this shade chameleon really has tried them all. Just what will she go for next? Credit: @bellathorne 

Editor’s tip: Want to tap into one of these celebrity hair colours? Then you’ll need to switch up your usual wash and care system for one specifically formulated for dyed hair.

We suggest trying the Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner, whose Vibrant Colour Lock formula will to help maintain your hue’s vibrancy for longer.
