Lauren Conrad appeared at the signing of her latest novel, The Fame Game, in Los Angeles, sporting a surprising new hairstyle.
Long gone are Lauren's long, blonde locks, instead she has decided to dye her hair a vibrant shade of Pink.
Jason Cocking, director of Lisa Shepherd London and celebrity hairstylist, whose clients have included Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Cat Deeley and Janice Dickinson, among others, gives his verdict on Lauren's new locks and how to get the look at Home.
Hit or Miss?
“I love Lauren's fuchsia tresses and think it’s a real hit in terms of hairstyle and Hair colour. She has made a brave move away from the original and somewhat typical LA look, whilst incorporating colour that is still on bang on trend and catwalk led."
“This look will work on all hair types and is easy to recreate at Home.”
Here Jason tells us how:
Firstly, divide Hair up into four sections. Place each section of Hair into a ponytail, so that you are left with two on each side and two secured at the back of the head. Work out how high you want the dip-dye to go and place masking tape around each section of hair at the chosen level.
Ensure that all pieces of masking tape are secured at the same height in order to create the perfect overall look. Dampen the ends of the hair with water and apply colour, this will enable the hair to soak up the colour and give you a natural bleed.
Take off the marker and twist the bottom of the hair as this not only pushes the colour up, but also gives you that professional fade you are aiming to get.
Continue to apply the colour in stages until you have reached the strength and depth you are looking.
Finally, rinse the ends of the hair until water runs clear and blow dry to create the perfect dip-dyed look.
