When the avant-garde diva, Lady Gaga, rocked up to the Grammys in that outlandish, ice queen-meets-intergalactic creation by Armani Prive, not only were we bowled over by the orbital, crystal-encrusted fabulousness of it, but also the dye job she’d had on her usually perfect platinum locks.  Hollywood blonde at the roots, and bright, lemon yellow at the tips, her hairdresser had either made a catastrophic error, or a brand new beauty trend was on the cards.   Well, judging by the army of tinted tresses that headed down the catwalk at Fashion Scout this season, we reckon you’ll all be coveting this look before the year is out. 

Esprit de Corps by Horace worked a messy, grungy ombre effect in cerise, black and salmon pink, and over at girl du jour, Hermione de Paula’s show, flicks of violet and mauve were worked into poker straight lilac grey locks.  And this look’s not just for the chicks either; Komakino showed us how to get the men in on the dip dyed act too.   Sleek, straight hair with precise black stripes, punked up white tints, and mousey browns were contrasted with white tips to give an edgy, striking, and not even remotely girly, look. 
Soft and colour bled, or bold and striped, this trend can be adapted to be as directional or wearable as you like, so expect salons to be heaving with foils and tints galore come September.  Book your appointment now!
