Lauren Conrad has been getting democratic on her beauty blog, thebeautydepartment, letting readers make grooming decisions for her. Her latest is a doozy, and we suspect it’s going to be a HUGE hair trend.
As seen at left, she did a hybrid dip dye/tie dye hair color. It looks absolutely sick (in the good sense of the term) and if my hair wasn’t so damn short right now I’d run out and do the same thing.
I did a semi-exhaustive search to try to figure out if this look has been sported before, but she seems to have come up with a new technique. While Nicki Minaj loves dabbling with dip dye color, it’s always pretty flat and geometric, making a line of color through her hair. LC’s combination of dip dye and tie dye is a really fantastic effect. It’s also great if you want some fun color but don’t necessarily want to commit to a full head. It’s sort of a combination of the soon-to-be-played out ombre trend--which LC also sported--and over-the-top Gaga hair.
Check out the gallery below to see a progression of the wacky hair color trend. I think Lauren Conrad’s stylist perfected the look and got it absolutely right.
