Dip-dyed hairstyles are still a really big deal and this spring, the colour fade is back and stronger than ever. It's time to get to know the best ways to do two-tone in 2016...

Dip-dye hairstyles are still one of the hottest hair trends around right now.

With a 2016 refresh – as seen on the likes of reality star Khloe Kardashian, Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr and Modern Family actress Ariel Winter in recent months – the colour fade can help you get spring-ready in an instant.

Give sultry chocolate locks and champagne shades a kiss of platinum blonde to lighten up your ‘do for the festival season and give your post-winter locks a sun-kissed holiday feel.

Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Alexa Chung and TV presenter Caroline Flack have all championed this winning ombre hair look.

And it’s not just the blonde dip-dyes that work particularly well. Thanks to a certain strawberry blonde Hollywood icon, it’s the red heads who are showing off some fierce colour changes this spring.

But if a glance at Emma Stone’s stunning ombre hair isn’t quite enough to convince you to make the change, check out how flamboyant Nicki Minaj manages to totally transform her appearance with a vibrant pop of bright pink.

The Super Bass star isn’t the only VIP fan of a striking dip-dye. Hair chameleon Lady Gaga has been snapped working a yellow shade, while Jaime King is all about the blue.

Drew Barrymore is another who’s not afraid to make a strong statement with ombre hair – black tips ensure she remains the centre of attention as she promotes her new film Whip It.

Worried that your dip-dye won’t be visible if you decide to fashion an up-do? Don’t be. Lauren Conrad’s kooky fuchsia colour is hard to miss as she rocks a flirty and feminine high ponytail with retro flicks of winged eyeliner at a book signing.

So get to know the best ways to wear dip-dye hairstyles in 2016 and book in your salon appointment, stat.
