The dip-dye. Yes, this may have been the term given to our two-toned hair for years (less fashion hair more major root-regrowth) but this season the beauty industry’s apparent obsession with My Little Pony candy-dipped hair ends is back on, with the dip-dye showing no signs of fading away.
Seen on the models walking Miuccia Prada’s AW12 show at Milan Fashion Week, where tawny crowns gave way to whitened ends as well as on the new breed of Hollywood elite – think Kate Bosworth’s mermaid tips last year and more recently Chloe Moretz faded pink ends, this trend translates as easily from the catwalk to the high street. Before you start precariously dipping your tresses in bleach, try Kevin Murphy’s colour bug, £12.95, which comes in purple, pink and orange so you can dabble in dip-dye without the long-term commitment. Just apply some product to pre-styled hair (to make the colour stick) then work the bug through the ends for vibrant, yet temporary candy hair.
