Day-Glo Hair Alert: Alyson Hannigan and Lance Bass Amp Up Their Color

07/07/2014 at 11:02 AM ET

While fireworks were dazzling the masses over the weekend, a couple stars were making some mega-watt fireworks of their own with super-bright new dos. Both Alyson Hannigan and Lance Bass debuted Day-Glo locks over the weekend, and we’re here to discuss.

First up: Hannigan, who is free to experiment with her hair now that How I Met Your Mother has wrapped up. She first expressed herself with a big bob chop in March, and she’s taken it one step further with a super-bright red hue, which she debuted in L.A. this weekend.

She’s one of TV’s most famous redheads, but she tends to stay on the auburn side of the spectrum. Her new hue, however, is an eye-catchingly bright shade of scarlet, touched with strawberry-blonde highlights and shaped into a shorter, more graduated cut to really show it off.

Another star who went bold and bright: Lance Bass, who documented his progress from sandy blonde to “Brony” blue [Brony being a male fan of My Little Pony, as he illustrates here and here]. He even showed off a photo of his bleached-blonde state before the dye was applied, joking “#ThrowbackThursday! 1997 called, Lance- they want their hair back!”

After getting the full blue do, Bass shared more photos of him out and about, meeting Celine Dion and doing other normal day-to-day activities, just with “firework hair,” as he called it.

What do you think of these two new hue developments?

I hate this trend.

Chantel Keona on

I like Alyson’s hair!

Maybe her hair looks better in real life?

No to all of it. What is this trend of making your hair look like a smurf?? People have such a hard time embracing natural beauty. I can understand teenagers doing this stuff, but grown ups not so much.

I don’t love Alyson’s hair. It looks like something went wrong at the hairdressers. Tone it down a bit girl! ( love the bob though)

I don’t get the dying hair thing. I work with women who color their hair every two months. It never looks natural and I’m sure it’s not healthy for the hair. Sometimes it’s better to be natural.
