    We may not love it so much now, but dip dye is without a doubt one of the biggest hair trends of the decade.

    As seen on the likes of reality star Khloe Kardashian, Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr and Modern Family actress Ariel Winter, to name just a few. Now replaced with insanely popular balayage, the colour fade can help you feel ready for a new season.

    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 in the past.

    But if a glance at Emma Stone’s stunning strawberry blonde 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 singer 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.

    While dip dye isn’t getting a revival any time soon, there’s no shame in looking back on the best celebrity hair looks of an era gone by.
