2. Iggy Azalea

Understated isn’t a trait that we’d associate with rapper Iggy Azalea, so it’s no surprise that her dip-dye choice follows suit. The singer opted for a dramatic shade of pink along the bottom of her blonde hair, which perfectly complements her long bob cut.

Editor’s tip: Thinking of trying out an ombre hue this season? Be sure to invest in a wash and care system formulated with coloured tresses in mind.

We suggest going for the Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner for its unique colour lock technology which helps to keep your coloured hair looking vibrant for longer.

Let’s be honest, lilac hair isn’t really for the faint-hearted, but Hilary Duff’s violet tresses completely dispel this notion. After seeing this pic, you might want to consider working light lavender tones with flaxen locks for a soft romantic look.

Rita Ora is another fearless dip-dyer. Over time the pop singer has played with pink, blue, and green. But her edgy rainbow experimentation with vivid purple, turquoise and saturated marigold yellow back in 2014 has to be one of our favourites.

Editor’s tip: If you want to show off your new hue with a silky smooth finish like pop star Rita Ora, then we suggest using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Colour Smoothing Serum.

Formulated with Moroccan argan oil and keratin protein, this wardrobe must-have is designed to infuse the hair with shine, vibrancy and softness.
