Lily Allen's Multi-hue Citrus Hair Is a New Take on the Bright Trend

It’s starting to seem like there are more stars with bright neon hair these days than without. We’ve seen purple, dark purple, blue, green and pink — and that’s just within the past few months. But what if you don’t want to commit to any one color? What if your heart says “Pink! And orange! And purple! And red!” Apparently, Lily Allen’s did, and now she’s displaying the results.

The star was halfway to her new sunset-dyed do in late May, when she joined the growing club of celebs wearing dark roots and neon ends. And she’s been making tweaks to the color ever since, finally landing on this array of shades that she sported at last night’s Serpentine Gala in London. To play up her “unicorn princess” look at the event, she also lined her eyes with green and chartreuse glitter liner, a winged cat-eye and flirty false lashes. But the rest of her look — a basic (from the front, anyway) LBD and a nude lip — somehow made the full effect seem cool instead of crazy.

Our first instinct was “wig,” but upon closer inspection, it appears to be all her, from purple roots to tangerine ends, and all the rainbow shades in between. On her Instagram, she showed the look in a few different incarnations, crediting Bleach London’s Alex Brownsell for the transformation.

What do you think of this new rainbow do? What should we call it?

The top picture looks fine, but the rest, yech!

I actually think it looks pretty, in the first pic. One thing her hair has going for it (that a lot of other crazy colored hair people don’t tend to have), is shine. Seems when you see these extreme colors, their hair has no shine, and just look dull and blah. The shine makes all the difference.

Cute looks good on her! Much better than Nicole Richie and Kelly Osbourne!

I think it looks great in the first picture and nowhere near as crazy as it sounds in the title of the article. She’s got a perfect mix of all the colors and it’s absolutely gorgeous on her! :)

It is exactly like the hair color of the Kindle Fire tech on the commercial they’ve been showing for months. So, not new, not original, and not the first, but so beautiful!

Love the first photo, the gradient is really well done.

Gorgeous! If I weren’t looking for a job, I’d do it.

I love how her hair looks in the top picture. You can see the sunset effect more clearly. She can definitely pull of the colors. It’s beautiful!
