nsm Beauty: tressed for fun! Would you try the dip-dyed hair colour trend?

I know, rainbow streaks are the kind of thing you get from Claire’s for a tween sleepover party. But a mama friend of mine, who just had red extensions applied at the salon, is absolutely rocking the look!

The dip-dye look has never been hotter. This picture, of actress and fashion designer Laura Conrad’s dip-dyed tresses, caught my eye over at the The Beauty Bean blog (not least because it triggered childhood memories of multi-colouring my Girl’s World hair styling doll!!).

Laura’s colour was done professionally at an LA salon – almost certainly the way to go if you’re going to experiment with this ongoing trend for a bit of summer fun.

But you don’t have to go for brights. The dip-dye trend has also been spotted among the fashion and beauty pack on brunettes with bright blonde or honey-caramel tips.

Kind of makes a mama feel better about her roots!
